Product Description

In reading Genesis we find on every occasion, in his dealings with mankind, God steps in by his grace and demonstrates that he is in control.

About the Focus on the Bible series:

The Focus on the Bible series is primarily geared toward those laity who wish to improve their understanding of Scripture with a detailed study of the text. To this end, the authors in this series focus on the meaning of the text in its original context without expounding on technicalities. Authors bring the text to life for the modern reader by examining the biblical text phrase-by-phrase, and sometimes word-by-word in English. To enhance study, a series of guided text-centered study questions are provided at the end of each section.

Editorial Reviews

"The meaning of creation (and/or evolution) has taken its place at the front of the intellectual/cultural stage for over a century and a half, and shows no sign of moving from the center of discussion and debate. Secularists and Christians - both liberal and conservative - instinctively understand the high significance of the issue, and hence, the intensity of the continuing debate. Whether God is real and Scripture is true are both tied up in the foundational text of the Bible: Genesis chapters one to three. Richard Belcher's Genesis is a clearly written and judiciously researched guide to the entire question of the meaning of the book of Genesis (not just to its first three chapters, pivotal though these are)."
"It is hard to think that more material was ever packed into a brief compass, or with greater clarity, helpfulness and ease of reading than Dr. Belcher has managed in this commentary. The words 'thoroughness', 'fairness' and 'lucidity' spring to mind to describe the whole work. Indeed, I cannot think of an important 'stone left unturned'! The treatment, for example, of the creation narrative ranks among the fullest and fairest I have ever read, but, without exaggeration every page has its quota of good things, problems solved, and truths illuminated. In a word, I enjoyed this book from beginning to end and warmly commend it."
"Richard Belcher's commentary focuses on the big picture of Genesis, tracing God's story of redemption through the biblical narrative. His careful exposition shows how Genesis reveals God's intentions for his creation and his unstoppable purpose to bless his people and redeem them out of slavery, bringing good out of evil. God's people can live with confidence that God will be faithful to his promises to redeem and restore the broken and the suffering. He is able to take what people mean for evil and turn it into good. This commentary deserves a wide appreciation, as it will help pastors, leaders, and Christians see how Genesis proclaims the deepest message of the Bible: the grace of God for sinners and those who suffer."
"Richard Belcher walks us through the familiar pages of Genesis in ways that go beyond what we often find in commentaries...This commentary will serve pastors well as they preach and teach. It will serve lay people well as they seek to understand the implications of Genesis for their lives."
