Joyce Baldwin approaches Genesis in this commentary from an Evangelical position. She treats Genesis as a historical document, discussing the idea of history in the introduction. After this discussion Baldwin goes on to discuss each verse from a theological and practical point of view. This commentary focuses on chapters 12-50 of Genesis in order to analyze the Hebrew Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. This treatment is good for teachers or lay people. Joyce Baldwin, Old Testament scholar and former principal of Trinity College, Bristol, has written numerous books and commentaries on the Old Testament.

Review 1 for The Message of Genesis 12-50: The Bible Speaks Today [BST]
Baldwin is an Evangelical writer whose work is always helpful. This book is no exception. It is relatively brief, but serves as a great aid to personal study or lesson preparation. It is enlightening and practical. It is very accessible. For scholarly issues, one will need to look elsewhere, but for a solid exposition, built upon good scholarship this is as good as it gets.

Excellent. Easy reading, not encumbered with a lot of Hebrew, with application for today's Christian.
