  1. Paul Dubuc says:

    I ve read some of the other commentaries in this series and they generally make good devotional commentaries, but this one was disappointing The author does not provide much in the way of insight or application beyond what you can read in the text of Genesis 12 50 itself.

    The Bible Speaks Today is one of the greatest introductory commentaries on Holy Scripture that has even been produced Eddied by the revered John Stott, this series is very through having almost a work per book in scripture One of the books which has two volumes in the series is the book of Genesis Genesis is fifty chapters in length and is written in historical narrative, therefore there is much to be explained for those who do not have the benefit of understanding the cultural context o The Bible Speaks Today is one of the greatest introductory commentaries on Holy Scripture that has even been produced Eddied by the revered John Stott, this series is very through having almost a work per book in scripture One of the books which has two volumes in the series is the book of Genesis Genesis is fifty chapters in length and is written in historical narrative, therefore there is much to be explained for those who do not have the benefit of understanding the cultural context of the ancient near east Thankful the Bible Speaks Today BST helps not only explain the cultural context to a reader but why it matters to them in their current cultural context.While both of the volumes on Genesis are beneficial, the one before us today is the second volume containing Genesis 12 50 This covers from the life of Abraham through the life of Joseph While most entries in the series can be praised for expositing in some depth various periscopes, I found this volume to be severally lacking in that department The author Joyce Baldwin does an admirable job in exegeting the passages, yet it is still lacking It most likely is due to the format of the series, keeping books shorter andto the point, yet for those who wish to slowly teach or preach exegetical though shorter passages at a time this work is not a great as it could have been.This is not to say that I did not enjoy reading Baldwin s exegesis, nor did I not find many nuggets of information and practical application, which I had not though of before The problem is her work is wonderful, I just wish there wasof it Therefore while this is work is suitable to personal study, I would advise pastors and teachers to use this work in conjunction with another commentary to help them in the dutiful task of expositing God s Word.This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review
