Verse-by-verse commentary is accompanied by images, tables, appendixes, and a lengthy introductory section in Herbert Edward Ryle's study of Genesis. Ryle's writings are lucid and detailed, extensively studying the original Hebrew text and offering over 500 pages of rich biblical insight into the first book of the Pentateuch.
There are no better books in exposition of the different parts of Scripture than those contained in the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges. The series has long since established its claim to an honorable place in the front rank of first-rate commentaries; and the teacher or preacher who masters its volumes will be, like Apollos, mighty in the Scriptures.
