A set of three newly repackaged editions of classic commentaries from James Montgomery Boice who discusses the events of Genesis and how they set the stage for all of Scripture.
About the Author
James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour, on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years.
I have enjoyed this three volume set. You cannot take this book and read it like a novel. The subject requires much study and research even though the book provides the scripture.
He does a great job handling Genesis chapter 6. This very difficult chapter is put forth quite well by Moses! Most authors and especially expositors read right over the words in an effort to avoid the controversy. Feature this: we read how God created the Heavens and the Earth with one word yet have a hard time with chapter six. The controversy is put forth by those that WILL NOT believe what the Bible says. Brother Boice handles the topic just as God breathed it to a cloud of Biblical writers!
The genealogy sections of Genesis are given meaning and are not boring. He does an excellent job of integrating the people and the stories into the New Testament. I cannot imagine having a serious study of Genesis and NOT reading this book! But be ready, it took me three months to finish the first 11 chapters! This set shall remain one of my most valued references in my library.
