The Daily Study Bible Series is the Old Testament companion to Barclay's New Testament commentaries. Meant to be accessible to lay people these are easy to read, yet scholarly treatments of the scriptures. This work on Genesis by Gibson is the second of two volumes and so does not have the introductory material present in volume one. This volume contains the commentary on Genesis, Chapters 12-50.
In this second of two volumes on the book of Genesis, John Gibson examines epics of faith as portrayed primarily by Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph. He considers the dramatic stories of Genesis in their historical context, relates them to the New Testament, and shows their applicability to today's church. Illustrated by maps, with suggestions for further reading, this companion to Genesis, Volume 1, also by Gibson, makes the happenings in Genesis as relevant to today's men and women as they were to the people of ancient times.
Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
John C. L. Gibson served as a member of the faculty in Hebrew and Semantic Languages and as Coordinator and Chairman of the Board of Examiners in Biblical Literature at the University of Edinburgh. He is the editor of the popular Daily Study Bible series.
