12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Jeffrey W. Brannen on February 10, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This commentary is a fairly easy read. John Currid's excellent grasp of the original languages undergirds the exegeses, especially the more complex passages. His approach is Reformed, Covenantal, Six Days, and a historical approach to Noah's flood. This particular commentary is written in such a way that the average reader can get a lot out of it while having much valuable material for the more advanced student of Scripture.

I found it a refreshing counter to the Wellhausen JEDP theory (and its great-grandchildren).

If you are looking for a good commentary that is thoroughly biblical, complex and yet not overly so, this would be a good addition a Sunday School teacher's bookshelf.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a must have commentary if one is preaching through Genesis. It is to the point, captures the mood of the text and is Biblically faithful.
