Eugene F. Roop focuses on the rich story line that traces the development of a community of faith in Genesis. He explores the important theological motifs of the book and their implications for our lives today. These themes include creation, disaster and reaction, promise and fulfilment, infertility and blessing.

This commentary grew out of the study of Genesis in the congregational and seminary community. It is intended to promote and enhance study in those settings.
