Creation, Genesis, and an Omnipresent God

Full Product Description

The commentary before you is actually two books. The first few chapters of Genesis are a dichotomy. There is a simple, relatively brief description of the Creation, the Garden of Eden, the Fall of Man, the Antediluvian world, and the Flood. Hidden behind that easily understood story is an extremely complex philosophical situation combined with material that can only be understood with higher-level science. It should be no surprise, then, when Part 1 of my commentary, on those early chapters, is complex and scholarly. You will also find it controversial in the extreme. It is my hope that you find, in that controversy, new ways of looking at our timeless God and His story of creation. That is not nearly as simple as it first appears. Part 1 and Part 2 are heavy going, and they were never meant to be anything else. If they (temporarily) get to be too much for you, jump ahead to Part 3. That portion of this commentary concerns the historical Genesis. Abraham lived in a real city (Ur of the Chaldees) and traveled through a historical Palestine. Isaac and Jacob raised their flocks next to real historical cities, whose existence is confirmed by archaeological evidence. Joseph lived in a real land of Egypt. Once we reach Part 3, the quoted sections will be longer and longer, because they are (for the most part) almost self-explanatory. In those later chapters, I will be looking for unique perspectives (especially scientific perspectives) that the reader might not have noticed during a typical read-through of Genesis.
