Editorial Reviews

Review

Genesis is a book of beginnings, including the beginning of the world, man, sin, and the nations. In fact, the word genesis means "origin. " Clearly Genesis is the foundation on which the remaining sixty-five books of th Bible are built. Exploring Genesis is a scholarly, verse-by-verse commentary which explains Hebrew words, elaborates on background information, and refers to other books of Scripture to give the reader a thorough understanding of the text. Exploring Genesis will be valued by biblical students, teachers and general readers alike. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

The book of beginnings, Genesis is foundational to understanding the grand themes of Scripture: the world, man, sin, the nations. In this God-centered, scholarly commentary, John Phillips brings Genesis to life verse by verse as he addresses questions, explains Hebrew words, details background information, and references other passages of Scripture for fuller understanding. His writing has substance and style—appropriate for both the scholar and the layman.

"This series has features that will make it a favorite of Bible students: detailed alliterative outline; notes about the authorship; straightforward interpretation of the text; practical application."

—Bookstore Journal

"John Phillips writes with enthusiasm and clarity, . . . cutting through the confusion and heretical dangers associated with Bible interpretation."

—Moody Magazine

"Well-outlined and illustrated. . . . Will hold the interest of lay readers and will provide Sunday School teachers and preachers much material."

—John Kohlenberger III

"In the style that has commended him to numbers of Bible-loving people, [Dr.] Phillips deals with . . . biblical exposition in a Christ-honoring, easily-read style."

—The Baptist Bulletin

John Phillips received his Doctor of Ministry degree from Luther Rice Seminary. He served as assistant director of the Moody Correspondence School as well as director of the Emmaus Correspondence School, one of the world’s largest Bible correspondence ministries. He also taught in the Moody Evening School and on the institute’s radio network. Now retired, Dr. Phillips remains active in his writing and preaching. He and his wife, Betty, live in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

I have really enjoyed reading this commentary series, I would rate this in the top 5 commentary series writings that I have read. Even for a person that didn't know anything about the bible they would have a much better grasp after reading these books.

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By S. Johnson on April 13, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is the best single volume commentary that I have seen to date on the book of Genesis. John Phillips offers simple, clear Biblical wisdom and guidance and moves you into the passages and stories of the text. He brings Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to life and lifts up the sinfulness of sin and the truly amazing grace of God in Jesus Christ.

The expository outlines alone would justify purchasing the book, but the richness and clarity with which he brings out the gospel truth is almost matchless.

I would recommend this book to any student of the Scriptures. Both laypeople and clergy will find it lucid and engaging.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Franklin L. Kirksey on June 16, 2009
Format: Hardcover
"The John Phillips Commentary Series presents the accumulation of a lifetime achievement from this gifted man of God. His association with Dr. Stephen F. Olford and Dr. Jerry Vines substantiates his high view of Holy Scripture. His affiliation with the Moody Bible Institute further illustrates his attestation of Biblical inerrancy. His application of the Bible text demonstrates his strategic grasp of God's Word. His alliteration will endear him to preachers and teachers everywhere. I wholeheartedly recommend it!"

--Dr. Franklin L. Kirksey, Pastor, Teacher, Mentor, Writer, Author of Sound Biblical Preaching: Giving the Bible a Voice
