Genesis the first book of the Bible is perhaps one of the most difficult to understand. Is it largely symbolical or to be read as firm historical fact? What does it mean? Is there a hidden meaning? Is it still relevant to me today?

If you have ever asked any of the questions above, then I would highly recommend `Straight to the Heart of Genesis'. Phil Moore's approach is inviting and contemporary, but most importantly challenging.

The book is divided into two parts:

`Part One: Primeval History' which focuses on the events described in Genesis from Creation to c.2100BC

`Part Two: Patriarchal History' which focuses on the events described in Genesis from c.2100BC to c.1805BC

The two parts are then broken down into a number of smaller chapters, each a couple of pages long. These smaller chapters focus on individual passages of text and discuss its meaning and message. In this way, the entire book of Genesis is broken down into manageable chunks.

The chapters are written in a very conversational manner and as such increase the book's overall accessibility. Each chapter begins with a real life or historical scenario which is linked in some way to the passage of text from Genesis. The middle of the chapter focuses on the meaning of the text and the end links the text to the chosen scenario and concludes with a challenge or inspirational message.

This commentary is certainly not stale. It is relevant, engages its target audience and enables the reader to maintain concentration throughout. It is recommended to anyone studying Genesis or attempting to make sense of the book. Fresh, modern and very accessible, this was a great book.

This is her second book from the 'Straight to the Heart' series. Phil Moore's concise style is challenging to the heart and stirs up one's desire to dig deeper into scripture in order to learn from God's dealings with his people - His Love, His Care, His Justice for each of His children

The 'Straight to the Heart...' series of books are brilliant. Having read Phil Moore's book on Revelation I bought the Genesis book. Highly recommend the easy to read style and the outstanding content.
