Victor P. Hamilton makes a major contribution to the study of Genesis with this volume on the first 17 chapters. His extensive introduction discusses issues such as structure, composition, theology, and canonicity related to Genesis. The commentary derives from Hamilton's own translation and thoroughly expounds the meaning of these foundational chapters. Further, each section concludes with a discussion of how the New Testament used material from the section discussed. Written from an evangelical perspective, Hamilton's commentary will be valuable to those seeking an in-depth understanding of Genesis.
