This volume is not intended to be a full exposition of the Book of Genesis. The purpose is to set forth, as simply and clearly, the grace and glory of God in Christ in the opening pages of Holy Scripture. So states Don Fortner in the Preface to this volume - and this is precisely what he does. By commenting on the principal characters to whom God revealed himself in the book of Genesis and the major events of their lives, the author brings to light the presence of Christ and the evidence of God's great plan of redemption in these opening chapters of the Bible. But he does not leave it there: concerned to impart to the reader a greater appreciation of Christ, the Saviour of sinners, the author intersperses teaching and application, with the intention of encouraging believers to live lives of worship and committed service to Christ.
