Westminster John Knox Press Genesis for Everyone: Part One - eBook

Following on the heels of the successful New Testament for Everyone commentaries by acclaimed scholar and author N. T. Wright, Westminster John Knox is pleased to announce the first volumes in the all new Old Testament for Everyone Bible commentary series.

John Goldingay, an internationally respected Old Testament scholar, authors this ambitious series, treating every passage of Scripture from Genesis to Malachi, addressing the texts in such a way that even the most challenging passages are explained simply and concisely. Perfect for daily devotions, Sunday school prep, or brief visits with the Bible, the Old Testament for Everyone series is an excellent resource for the modern lay reader.

Goldingay is an exceptional scholar and a whole-hearted follower of Jesus, who thoroughly understands the cultural context in which Genesis was written in (and therefore the message that the original audience would have heard), but also brings the text to us, guiding us in how it applies afresh in our everyday life.
I highly recommend this and everyone of the other commentaries in the series.

AUTHOR ATTEMPS TO USE "FALSE SCIENCE" TO SHOW GOD IS UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE HOW HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE. AN INSULT TO GOD AND BELIEVERS. AUTHOR ATTEMPTS TO DISCREDIT GENESIS AS NOT BEING TRUTHFUL AND FACTUAL. SUGGEST HE READ 2 PETER 2 AND BEWARE.
