Genesis Commentary for Children

I have just come across the "Herein Is Love: A Commentary Series for Children" published by Shepherds Press (thank you to Justin Taylor of Between Two Worlds)

I have already ordered the one for Genesis, especially as it supports the Biblical view of creation, as in six literal days etc.

The intention of the publishers is for the series to cover from Genesis through Joshua. In their own words;

"The beginning books of the Bible are essential to our understanding of God's redemptive story. The author of Herein Is Love creatively focuses our attention on the events that bring this story to life. The series has the richness of well-written literature and the depth of understanding inherent in a commentary. The result is a series of books whose details live and sing. They help parent and child understand the Christ-centered Word, and they are enjoyable reading for both. Your own faith will be strengthened while reading to your children, and your children will be encouraged, lesson by lesson, to believe in the Lord Jesus."

"This wonderful series will take you and your child from Genesis through Joshua; from the beginning, when there was only the Word, until Gods takes His people into the promised land he has prepared for them."

To find an adult commentary that is willing to stand up and support the biblical view of creation can be hard, so to find one I can use with my 3 children to give them a firm understanding of this important truth is a real joy.

There is of course so much more to Genesis and it is a shame that so many people are willing to compromise in this area and so require that time and effort is expended to try and correct all the Bible undermining compromise regarding the clear teaching of scripture.

I see the support for Biblical creation as just one small (albeit important) piece in the great tapestry that makes up these defining books of the OT.

I look forward to aquiring the whole set.
