Genesis is a book of origins: of the world, of sin, of God's promise of redemption, and of the people of Israel. It traces God's pledge of a Savior through Abraham's line down to his great-grandson Judah. It serves as a foundation for the New Testament and its teaching that Jesus is the fulfillment of God's promise to save humankind from sin and death. In this Tyndale Commentary, Andrew Steinmann offers a thorough exegetical commentary on Genesis, including a reconstructed timeline of events from Abraham's life through to the death of Joseph.

The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties.

In the new Old Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Meaning. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

This is the best short commentary on Genesis available right now. Steinmann has done a marvelous job of providing a solid introduction and good, relevant commentary on the text of Genesis. I have used this as a basic text for course that I am teaching and the students are responding well to its content and Steinmann's writing style. Written from a conservative, confessional perspective, we can only hope for more commentaries like this in the future.

Sparkling clarity and pleasant conclusions! I couldn't be happier with this update to Kidner's very brief commentary. Conservative/traditional views on creation and Adam, and always a eye toward relevant future revelation and developing themes which is crucial for valuing the importance Genesis has towards understanding scripture as a whole.
