Currid, John D.
Genesis - the book of beginnings, the creation of the universe, the formation of mankind, the establishment of the covenant and the founding of the people of Israel. Many Christians regard the Old Testament as a source of interesting Sunday School stories that have little application for today, but the truth is that almost every Christian doctrine is found in seed form in Genesis. With skill and scholarship John Currid advocates the Mosaic authorship of Genesis and a literal six-day creation. He highlights the importance of the text for Christians and in doing so has produced a Christ-exalting study that will stand the test of time.4
