The book of Genesis is both the Bible’s account of human origins and the herald of human destiny. It is a book swarming with significant questions. Who wrote it? When? Does the account of creation square with modern science? What about Adam and Eve? Derek Kidner not only provides a running exegetical commentary, but also lucidly handles the tough issues that Genesis raises. His clear prose and theological insight will expand readers’ understanding of God’s character and of human nature and destiny.
