Victor P. Hamilton makes a major contribution to the study of Genesis with this volume on the first 17 chapters. His extensive introduction discusses issues such as structure, composition, theology, and canonicity related to Genesis. The commentary derives from Hamilton's own translation and thoroughly expounds the meaning of these foundational chapters. Further, each section concludes with a discussion of how the New Testament used material from the section discussed. Written from an evangelical perspective, Hamilton's commentary will be valuable to those seeking an in-depth understanding of Genesis.

Review 1 for The Book of Genesis, Chapters 1-17: New International Commentary on the Old Testament [NICOT]
Hamilton is a very good Old Testament Scholar. He writes well. This book is very accessible to educated laypersons, pastors, seminary students and others. Issues of detail that are of primary concern to scholars are addressed in helpful footnotes. The introduction is the best I have seen on Genesis. The section on “Composition” is especially helpful. Hamilton writes from a conservative position that respects the reliability of the OT record. The comments on specific passages are also excellent. This work is highly recommended.
