By Charles R. Harvey on March 4, 2015
Format: Hardcover
This book is a part of the College Press NIV Commentary series. The series is very good and has a strong consistency in the writing and format between the various books and authors. This commentary is divided into two volumes (Chapters 1-11:26, and Chapter 11:27-50). Both volumes are from the same author’ Paul Kissling and for the purposes of this review I will treat both volumes in one review.

Both books have an introduction, outline and bibliography for further study. The commentary text is in the traditional verse by verse format. All comments are based on the NIV text, but is just as useful when using other versions. The writing is thorough but simply stated. There are footnotes for further explanation of certain ideas, and important Hebrew words are explained in the text. The Hebrew words are shown in the Hebrew alphabet and spelled phonetically as well. This is most helpful for those of us who never studied Hebrew. The author also shows the weakness of the NIV in relation to the original language in places where it may be an issue. This does not occur so often that it becomes a distraction and in fact seems to help clarify the meaning of the original text.

The writing is in depth and thorough without being bogged down by being excessively academic. They are in fact written for a more general, popular audience, and would be just as useful for the occasional Bible class teacher as it is for the more studied folk. If you had to teach a class on Genesis with only one resource, this would be a good candidate for that one source.

The publisher, College Press, also published the Bible Study Textbook series which is now out of print and can be downloaded for free from the publisher's website in pdf form.
