So far, so good. Already learned some tidbits and I'm just a couple pages into Chapter 1. Highly recommended.
This classic commentary on Genesis 1–11 contains a thorough analysis of the text itself, and has a number of features that set it apart from many other Genesis commentaries:
It defends the biblical creationist position: creation in six consecutive normal days, death resulting from Adam’s fall, and a globe-covering Flood, and confusion of languages at Babel, and in the process it explains how the rest of the Bible interprets Genesis in the above straightforward manner.
While skillfully documenting how interpreters throughout Church history have taught the above, and that long-age death-before-sin views were a reaction to 19th-century uniformitarian geology, it also provides cutting-edge scientific support for the Genesis history.
Importantly it demonstrates that all doctrines of Christianity begin in Genesis 1–11, and straightforwardly answers the commonest objections to a plain understanding of these crucial Genesis texts.
“This is a solid intellectual work and will be of real practical value to all who sincerely desire to properly understand the early chapters of Genesis. This book should be a considered a must read for all serious students of the Bible.” – Dr. Johnny M. Hunt, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church
“While many Christian scholars have reinterpreted Genesis 1-11 in light of evolutionary-based science, Dr. Sarfati works with the theological and historical meaning of the biblical text and then integrates science from a biblical perspective. Because of this, it is a privilege for me to commend Dr. Sarfati’s The Genesis Account: A Theological, Historical, and Scientific Commentary on Genesis 1-11.” – Robert V. McCabe, Professor of Old Testament and Registrar, Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary
