Product Description

The book of Genesis contains some of the most beautiful and well-known stories in the Bible: the garden, the flood, the tower of Babel, and the lives of the patriarchs. But these are more than just good stories.

They lay the groundwork for God's relationship with humanity and for his plan for our salvation, making Genesis foundational to understanding everything else that happens in the Bible. Genesis reveals much about human nature and the nature of God. From the actions of the first man and woman, we see where our rebellious, sinful nature originates. And through the whole book we see the hand of a sovereign God who is loving and merciful, but also just and holy.

Time and again in Genesis, God showers his grace upon undeserving humanity, giving us our first tastes of God's enduring faithfulness that shines throughout the entire Bible. R. Kent Hughes, respected pastor and author of many other commentaries in this series, takes readers back to the beginning of the Bible and moves through Genesis with careful exegesis. He explores the superbly crafted structure of the book as well as the weighty themes it contains. For those who preach, teach, and study God's Word, this exceptionally detailed work will reveal much about the beginnings of God's great story.

This series resonates with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God's people.
-Bryan Chapell

The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great book for genuine reformation!

There is a long history of informed, edifying biblical expositions that have been mightily used of God to shape and strengthen the church. These volumes admirably fit this tradition.

Throughout the Christian centuries, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all biblical expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.

    Preaching The Word - Genesis
    December 1, 2015
    Quality: 5
    Value: 5
    Meets Expectations: 5
    In approximately 563 pages Hughes divides Genesis's 50 chapters into 70 sections filled with description, details, and illustrations. This is a very readable, conservative, non-technical commentary for preaching or teaching. The book ends with five chapters entitled "Man and Sin in Genesis, Faith and Righteousness in Genesis, Grace in Genesis, Messiah in Genesis, and God in Genesis." Also, contains 22 pages of notes/bibliography and an alphabetical index of sermon illustrations.

    Can't wait to afford the rest of the series.

    Very useable and helpful. It is monstrous so it touches on practically everything, and Hughes does a good job revealing the humor that is all over Genesis.
