In this volume Butler presents the many and varied subjects so vividly portrayed in Genesis: creation, the Fall of man, the godly and ungodly lines of Adam and Eve's descendents, divine judgment upon the earth, and the greatest flood in the history of mankind, to name just a handful. He writes, "Genesis is a book of beginnings, and chapter one of Genesis is the beginning of the beginnings. This is a great place for the Bible to begin. If chapter one of Genesis is not true, then the contents of the Bible lose their value." Insightful as well as beautiful, he paints pictures with words, describing not only the meanings and foundations of scripture, but relating them to life in such a way as to be relevant to every reader. A rousing commentary sure to whet the appetites of seekers of His Word for generations to come.
