Publisher's Description

Here's an accessible reference that aids personal Bible study or Sunday school preparation-the QuickNotes Simplified Bible Commentary, designed for the everyday Christian, not the scholar. The sixth volume to release in the 12-volume set covers Genesis through Numbers, and gives you section-by-section commentary on the flow and theme of each book, as well as historical and literary context for each. Major interpretations are presented for controversial passages and topics. Puzzling passages and Bible practices are explained, and charts and diagrams further aid your understanding. "Take Home" segments provide a practical application for each passage.

Editorial Reviews

Can a commentary really cover Genesis through Numbers in 240 pages?  I confess I was a little skeptical when I began reading, but I was genuinely surprised to see that the author/editor was able to accomplish just that. Good organization of the chapters seems to be the key to the success of this book.  Each section has a Set-up (intent), Critical Observations (questions what or why), Demystifying (definitions and explanations), and Take it Home (applications).  I appreciated the detailed maps throughout the lessons and the easy to read text boxes that makes the information attention-grabbing. I especially enjoyed the section on Jacob’s Blessing, described as a theatrical play in 5 scenes, though the scenes are broken down differently by different commentators.  Act One: Isaac Asks Esau for a meal, Act Two: Rebekah’s Scheme, Act Three: Jacob’s Esau Imitation, Act Four: Esau’s Horror and Revenge, and Act Five: Jacob’s Departure. The commentary puts each act in focus with the consequences of the characters actions.

  I also found the use of different versions of the Bible helpful in making sense of difficult passages.   Genesis Thru Numbers QuickNotes Bible Commentary will complement your Bible study with observations that will enrich your learning experience.
