Publisher's Description

Interpreting Genesis 1 has become controversial among evangelicals today. Because of this, W. Robert Godfrey has written this short, clear study with thoughtful Christians in mind. He understands that it can be difficult to take a fresh look at a Scripture passage that is so familiar.

Editorial Reviews

In God's Pattern for Creation W. Robert Godfrey presents an interpretation of Genesis 1 that is clear, concise, and compelling. His covenantal reading of Genesis 1 unpacks the practical theology of this particular text and at the same time provides the reader with sound principles for interpreting the rest of Scripture.
W. Robert Godfrey understands how to read Scripture texts. In the midst of present confusion regarding Genesis 1, he writes with a clear and proper focus. Genesis 1, according to him, is covenantal and literary and it is for us! I will be giving out many copies of this book.
