Opening up Genesis

Kurt StrassnerSKU: OUGEN1597 ISBN: 9781846251597



Genesis is the book of beginnings. But it is also a book about God. "In the beginning God" is the opening freeze-frame of the Bible. If we go back in time before the world sprung into being, we find God. If we ask where the world came from, Genesis answers: God. If we wonder why the universe continues to operate in an orderly, timely, predictable fashion, the answer in Genesis is God. And as we ponder how all this ancient information has been preserved and passed down to us, the answer again is God, who gave this book to Moses and had him write it down for the ages.
 Kurt Strassner leads readers through Genesis with clarity and application, showing its vital relevance to our modern world.

Kurt Strassner is an excellent writer and it shows in this commentary on the foundational book of the Bible. He has an easy to read style, lucid, thought-provoking and with much practical application. His grasp of the omnipotent creation of God is most refreshing. The illustrations he uses for the flood and for the fire that came on Sodom and Gomorrah are powerful. Later on in Genesis he searches the mind of Joseph. Just what motivated Joseph as he gave his erring brothers a hard time? Kurt’s ability to keep to the text, to avoid the obvious and make us think is just what we need.
—Erroll Hulse, Associate pastor Leeds Reformed Baptist Church, Editor, Reformation Today

This study guide to Genesis has three primary strengths. First and foremost it shows accurately what Genesis is all about. Second, it is written simply. Third, it applies the text to the needs of the reader.
—Tom Wells, retired pastor of The King’s Chapel, West Chester, Ohio, author

Some surprising but true to Scripture exegesis and helpful notes gives this commentary the edge over commentaries of its size. Pastor Kurt Strassner is true to the text in Genesis 1-11 emphasising six day creation and endorsing God’s sovereign work over against naturalistic atheism. Throughout the book God’s amazing grace, love and providence are clearly dealt with.
—Rev Ian McNaughton, Pastor, West Worthing Evangelical Church, West Sussex, and Chairman of AiG (UK/Europe)
