Product Description

Not only does the book of Genesis begin our Bible, but it also can serve to begin the discussion of a variety of important topics as well: the questions of origins, tensions between siblings, the reality of sin, the saga of the human family, and the promise of God's covenant. In this perceptive and helpful commentary, Towner discusses Genesis in two parts. Chapters 1-11 explore the vocation given by God to the gardners of Eden, the escalating "falls" that culminate in the dispersal of Babel, and the quest to return to the paradise of the garden, Chapters 12-50 unveil the promise to Abram- that his family will be a source of blessing to all the nations-and after many close calls, the fulfillment of that promise in the larger family of faith.

Publisher's Description

Not only does the book of Genesis begin our Bible, but it also can serve to begin the discussion of a variety of important topics as well: the question of origins, tensions between genders and between siblings, the reality of sin, the saga of human family, and the promise of God's covenant. In this perceptive and helpful commentary, W. Sibley Towner relates the theological issues in Genesis to faith issues in the church today.

Books in the Westminster Bible Companion series assist laity in their study of the Bible as a guide to Christian faith and practice. Each volume explains the biblical book in its original historical context and explores its significance for faithful living today. These books are ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups.

    I needed this book for school. Most commentaries are so full of religious jargon and seem to be written by theologians to impress other theologians. This book is highly cohesive and readable. I am learning quite a lot through this book and like it a lot better than the IVP series book I also must read for this course.

    This is a nicely printed commentary on Genesis. I will be a leader in a 275 member Community Bible Study on Genesis this Fall and this book is very helpful. It is light weight and perfect to tuck into a briefcase while one is traveling. Once again the cost that CBD manages to keep within the range of ordinary people is very much appreciated. Thank You
