Genesis comes first in the biblical canon and arguably forms the foundation for understanding the rest of the Bible. Its great narratives of the patriarchs and exciting stories capture the imagination of the youngest reader and its great themes like Creation the Fall and the Flood help answer many questions. Important issues are all dealt with ably but this is not a technical commentary; the authors main concern is with the spiritual purpose of the book and he draws out those profound truths which still apply to God's people today.
Not a dry, technical commentary but an exposition that feeds and enlightens us spiritually. Author Peter Williams holds that, in a very real sense, the book of Genesis is the most important book of the Bible. Not only does it come first in the biblical canon, but it is foundational for understanding the other books of the Bible. With its great narratives of the patriarchs, together with vivid and exciting stories, Genesis can capture the imagination of its youngest reader. When readers consider the great themes of Creation, the Fall, the Flood, and the Tower of Babel they will find the answers to many questions. Important issues including the origins of life and the universe, the meaning of our human existence, God's purpose for mankind, and where human history is leading are all dealt with. This is not a dry, technical commentary; the author's main concern is the spiritual purpose of the book and drawing out those profound truths which still apply to God's people today.
