Genesis: the beginning of everything, recorded with an opening verse that has been called the most controversial verse in Scripture, at least as far as modern thought is concerned: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. In the pages of Genesis the origin of the human race and indeed all living things is outlined, the roots of the gospel are found and the history of the people of God begins. Philip Eveson takes an unashamedly conservative position in dealing with this crucial book in a way that is accessible to every one. This commentary is a highlight of the Welwyn series – don't miss it!
