Product Description

This an evangelical exposition of the first 11 chapters of Genesis that Atkinson argues are an overture to the rest of the Bible since they reveal God's loving mercy and salvation even in judgement. Atkinson then applies those findings to issues we face today and presents the magnificent cosmic setting of the early story of humanity. His comments are based on his scholastic work at Oxford University but are written for teachers or lay people.

Publisher's Description

Genesis shows us how and why we are. It uncovers the origins of evil. It illuminates the meaning of freedom. It expresses the harmony of creation. And it offers hope for the renewal of our natural world and for the healing of our broken relationships. "Genesis 1-11 is really an overture to the rest of the Bible." So writes David Atkinson in his introduction to this thoughtful and spiritual guide to the opening chapters of Genesis. Writing as a scientist and as a pastor, Atkinson avoides technicalities and speculation and provides a skillful guide to the text's theological significance. While many commentaries on these chapters become tangled in problems of dating, authorship and historicity, this tour of the opening chapters of Genesis focuses on the issues that really matter. Atkinson's work will be a delight to all--seasoned expositors and novice readers alike.

Author Bio

Atkinson is assistant curate of The Cathedral Church of St. Andrew, Aberdeen, and former fellow and chaplain of Corpus Christi College in Oxford, England. He is the author of several other books and commentaries.
