Paperback

This series helps the ordinary reader to understand the true meaning of the Bible text. Each volume presents a passage-by-passage interpretation of the text coupled with discussions of major themes and critical issues.

Genesis-the Bible's account of human origins and the harbinger of human destiny-is a book teeming with critical problems.

  • Who wrote it?
  • When?
  • Does the account of creation square with modern science?
  • What about Adam and Eve?
Derek Kidner not only provides a running exegetical commentary, but lucidly handles the tough issues that Genesis raises. His clear prose and theological insight will expand readers' understanding of God's character and of human nature and destiny.

^^The Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these volumes retain their original text now retypeset in a larger format. As always, they continue to aim at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.
