The book of Genesis is both the Bible's account of human origins and the herald of human destiny. It is a book swarming with significant questions. 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 also 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. This classic commentary has been completely retype set and presented in a fresh, vibrant new large paperback format, with new global branding. 236 Pages. Softcover from IVP.
The Tyndale Bible Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section-by-section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The aim throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.
Derek Kidner was formerly Warden of Tyndale House, Cambridge.
