In this commentary on Genesis 12-36, James Montgomery Boice traces the "new beginning" of God's plan of redemption, which arose out of God's relationship with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. By delving into the patriarchs' lives, Boice demonstrates how much they are like us and how easily we relate to them, both in triumphs and failures. The second of three volumes on the Book of Genesis, this commentary shows how God changed the course of history beginning with one less-than-perfect man. It reveals the patriarchs' stories as compelling, dramatic, and true to life. As you study their stories, writes Boice, "I trust that God will use their strengths and weaknesses, victories and failures, to guide you in the true path of discipleship and to strengthen your witness."

Review 2 for The Boice Commentary Series, Volume 2
Date:August 15, 2008
A thorough and comprehensive verse by verse commentary on Genesis. Dr. Boice's scholarship is impeccable yet his writing style is eminently accessible. A perfect blend of exposition and application. No need to know Greek - written in plain & simple "conversational" English. Dr. Boice's knowledge of so many different subjects is truly breathtaking. Though this is the longest commentary I have on Genesis, it is by far the most enjoyable, the most useful, and the one I refer to most when preparing to teach Sunday School.
