Praise for the Print Edition

The books are some of the best material I’ve read and studied. They fed me. It has been a joy and blessing to study these books.

—Mike Oldham, pastor, Central Baptist Temple, Sanford, North Carolina

I have been reading and studying through Dr. Mattoon’s Treasure series and I must say that they have truly been a blessing to me. Not only do they contain a wealth of information but they have also helped me to study the Bible in a way that I had not before. Consequently, they have helped me in my own sermon preparation. The Bible believing world has needed such resources.

—Walter Myers, pastor, First Bible Baptist Church, Maynard, Massachusetts

I never thought the presentation of truth could be as practical, clear, timely, and satisfying. The books are like a prepared meal ready to eat.

—David Tandoc, pastor, Dagapapn City, Philippines

This is excellent material. It is probably the most practical material for sermon preparation of anyone that I have read. I highly recommend it for pastors.

—Roy Edgemon, former director of discipleship and family ministries, LifeWay Christian Resources

Dr. Rod Mattoon has obviously searched the Scriptures in the production of the Treasures commentary series. Perusing these works will reveal the depth and breadth of his scholarship. I recognize the value of this resource for students of the Bible. I heartily recommend it.

—Franklin L. Kirksey, pastor, First Baptist Church, Spanish Fort, Alabama

Dr. Mattoon’s commentaries are well outlined, sound in exposition and rich in practical application. In addition there are numerous topical studies in each volume. This series is worth the investment.

Treasures from Genesis provides readers a practical and applicable commentary on the first book of the Bible. Each chapter includes an interpretation of the text, definitions of key Hebrew words, chapter outlines, and a chapter review.

Dr. Mattoon has given to the Christian world a very practical, powerful, and prudent-filled book. This book will serve as a text in Christian colleges and seminaries. This book is very readable for the common person who has no background in understanding Genesis. This book is a goldmine for Sunday school teachers and Christian workers.

—J. Arnold Fair, pastor, Faith Baptist Church, Angola, Indiana

This book is filled with what the title suggests: ‘treasures.’ It’s not only a good commentary on Genesis, but also a great reference book on Old Testament customs and people. A great book for topical seed sermons. The quality of the book is excellent.

—Greg McLaughlin, pastor, Calvary Baptist Church, Huntsville, Alabama

Treasures from Genesis, by Rod Mattoon, should be in the library of every young preacher. The outlines are excellent and provide a valuable source for sermon material.

—Sylvester Matthew, Open Door Baptist Church, Mesquite, Texas

I believe that the advantage of this book is its simple, straightforward format. It will be a valuable study tool for pastors and Sunday school teachers.

—Dave Jaspers, president, Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Wisconsin

The pages of this book are packed with research and information that will feed any pastor’s people. It is not hard to use and is very readable and useable. . . . its structure is well thought out and the result is a book that invites your attention. The features most helpful to me are the illustrative charts, the alliterated outlines, and the subject index.

—Mark Thrift, pastor, Parkwood Baptist Church, Houston, Texas

After perusing this volume of Genesis, I was made aware of the fact that this book is not just a book about Genesis and how to interpret it, but it is a book filled with a treasure of knowledge rarely found in one volume. The tools . . . provided will allow anyone studying this book to find information at his or her fingertips that will enrich his knowledge of God’s Word and the subject at hand.

—Ron Allen, senior pastor, Calvary Baptist Church, San Francisco, California

Your work on Genesis is not only one of the finest commentaries on that particular text, but the practical ‘life applications’ for the believer’s walk, especially as you relate the truth to other parts of Scripture are outstanding! I urge every serious Bible student, teacher, and preacher to add this commentary to their library.

—Dennis Erwin, evangelist, Edgewood, Texas

In my library I have 34 books on Genesis. Dr. Mattoon’s wonderful work is unlike any other and in my opinion in the first five. It is filled with alliterated outlines that come from the text. The applications are pungent and perhaps best of all this book is a wealth of information on traditions and customs of Bible times that I have read nowhere else.

—Joe Mark, evangelist, Towanda, Illinois
