    I used this volume in preaching through Gen. 1-6 and it was an excellent resource which I highly recommend.

    If you want to understand Genesis, ask a Jewish scholar. Cassuto writes like Rashi, whose commentary was intended for children but instructs adults. Cassuto's style is conversational instead of academic, and filled with low-hanging fruit. N. T. Wright said, "I read the commentary straight through." After reading it straight through, I understand why.

    I have all of Cassuto's works in print but I am eyeballing the prices on the Logos digital editions. Hands down, Cassuto's contextual understanding of Genesis along with his Ancient Near Eastern scholarship and linguistic comprehension makes this book (along with the other) a must have for anyone. Check out his commentary on Exodus as well. It is stellar!
