Genesis. NIVAC. Zondervan, 2001.
This is really good. Whether or not you buy all of Walton's implications of God's design or function, over material origins, you need to have this in your library. His major contribution is in ancient Hebrew and Mesopotamian cultural analysis. Very solid.
“Genesis” in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers. EBC. Zondervan, 1990.
Excellent. Helps with narrowing down passages into teachable portions of scripture. Good linguistic analysis. Great historical creationist perspective.
Genesis 1-4: A Linguistic, Literary, And Theological Commentary. P&R Publishing, 2006.
I think this is my favorite, complete, commentary in Genesis. Collins' linguistic, literary analysis is better than all the other commentaries I have combined (Wenham, Walton, Sailhammer, Boice). The only criticism is that it's not written in the way I tend to preach, in an expository progression, but rather addressing major themes and ideas. Therefore, you have to make good notes in the margins or flag pages so you know where to go when referring back for information.
