    Creation in six days; woman from the side of man; “sons of God” taking “daughters of men”; a massive disaster and an animal rescue boat of biblical proportions; Abraham, Sarah, Hagar and the ongoing saga of a dysfunctional family.

    These are just a few of the episodes that Genesis conjures up. But you miss the point if you focus on what seems strange to you. And you distort the message if you demand that this book answer questions that are strange to it. To read Genesis intelligently, you must consider the questions, the literature and the times in which Genesis was written.

    In How to Read Genesis Tremper Longman provides  a welcome guide to reading and studying, understanding and savouring this panorama of beginnings-of both the world and of Israel. And importantly for you, you gain insight into how Genesis points to Christ and can be read in light of the gospel.
