Have you ever purchased a commentary on Genesis only to be disappointed that the author either compromises God’s Word in Genesis by adding millions of years into the creation account somehow or just ignores the hard questions about Genesis 1–11 and sticks to the big picture until they get to Genesis 12 and Abraham? Well, if that’s been your experience, you’ll be excited about my commentary on Genesis 1–11 written specifically for families to read together.
Creation to Babel: A Commentary for Families is a commentary I wrote on the first eleven chapters of Genesis—the foundational chapters of the rest of the Bible and of Christian theology, doctrine, and of the gospel itself. In this lay-level commentary, I answer many of the questions I’ve been asked over the years about Genesis, equipping you with apologetic tools and biblical worldview teaching. I also highlight how you can see the gospel and the attributes of God in these early chapters. And it has a devotional emphasis. It’s a very different commentary.
As you can imagine, coming from Answers in Genesis, this resource doesn’t ignore the hard questions of Genesis but tackles them head-on, remaining faithful to the Scriptures, using Scripture to interpret Scripture, and always keeping God’s Word as the final and absolute authority.
It’s truly a unique resource, and we’ve already heard from so many families that are loving the deep content and the family discussions that are arising because of it. Use it for a series of family devotions! I encourage you to add Creation to Babel: A Commentary for Families to your home or church library. You can find this resource at AnswersBookstore.com.
