Opening the Scriptures is neither a new series of technical commentaries, nor is it a collection of sermons. Instead it offers devout church members a series of popularly accessible primers so that the average churchgoer can easily grasp them.

In this volume, readers are provided with an introduction to the book of Genesis. The portion of the Bible known as the Law of Moses, or Torah, is chiefly intended to give instruction about the series of covenants God made with Abraham and his seed, and Cornelis Vonk emphasizes this covenant relationship in this analysis of Genesis. He describes how Christ and the Apostles viewed Scripture, the dating of Genesis, the structure of the book, and follows with a detailed commentary on the text.
