The Book of Genesis


Thomas Arnold 1841

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Consisting of twenty-nine sermons originally preached in the Church of Holy Trinity in Cheltenham, Close’s Book of Genesis proved to be so popular that it required a second reprinting almost immediately. Close starts with the insightful essay “The Importance of the Old Testament,” and closes this illuminating volume with a powerful sermon, “The Compassion of Joseph.”

The Book of Genesis is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, and teachers of the Bible who want to go more in depth in the study of Genesis. With Logos Bible Software, this collection is completely searchable, with passages of scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to Greek and Hebrew texts and English translations in your library.
