Item Description...
Overview
In the beginning of Genesis, enmity is guaranteed between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. That enmity begins immediately as Cain kills Abel, and continues through Genesis-and through the Bible-until it culminates in the children of the devil murdering the Seed of the woman. The book of Genesis begins that narrative, documenting the development of God's covenant relationship with man through the growth of the seed. The Growth of the Seed is a study of Genesis that emphasizes these themes.

Publishers Description
The end of Genesis provides the exegetical key to understanding everything before it. Reuben, Simeon, and Levi were impenitent and passed over for the Messianic blessing. Th is explains why their sins were recorded and helps clarify the rest the Genesis accounts: Genesis details why the Messianic line continued through certain people and why others were rejected from it. Th us, the message of Genesis is who the Messiah came through and why He came through those people. Those few accounts that do not specifically discus this focus on some other aspect of God developing a covenant relationship with mankind. And the beginning of Genesis provides the exegetical key to understanding everything after it. Enmity is guaranteed between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. Th at enmity begins immediately as Cain kills Abel, and continues through Genesis-and through the Bible-until it culminates in the children of the devil murdering the Seed of the woman. The book of Genesis begins that narrative, documenting the development of God's covenant relationship with man through the growth of the seed. The Growth of the Seed is a study of Genesis that emphasizes this theme. In addition, it provides detailed comments on the text and short essays on several subjects that are suggested in, yet peripheral to, Genesis.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Solid Material  Jul 19, 2009
A commentary on Genesis based upon the research and conclusions of its author, primarily focusing on how the promise of redemption through the Seed to come plays out throughout Genesis.

The author's research is substantive-- many commentaries and articles are cited, and the author cites and compares the various comments made in said commentaries. The commentary both provides the basic understanding of the text while going into depth regarding many of the themes and concepts involved in Genesis. The author does well at citing historical background information that illuminates the context, and explores the literary structures of the various sections of Genesis. Information about the original languages, translation issues, and text-critical matters are sparse.

The author provides a few theological reflections and excurses on various subjects. Many of the excurses are based in controversial matters regarding Genesis-- they are well-researched and the various sides of disputes are set forth. The author does provide his own conclusions regarding the matters, and even if there is disagreement, one feels as if the subject is handled fairly.

The book is a solid, conservative resource on Genesis, and is well worth considering.
 
Fulfills its goals and beyond  Sep 14, 2008
This is not an all inclusive commentary on Genesis. Mr. Ward is specific about his goals of following the Messianic promise (the seed) through the book of Genesis and that is exactly what he does. By his own admission, he relies heavily on about 7 or 8 scholars. However, this is a benefit if you have a limited budget because you get the focus of this book plus what some of the major commentators have said on some of the issues. I love the excruses. Too often writers try to cram "side information" into the text of the commentary which distracts the reader, or they simply leave the subject incomplete. By having these excurses, you can delve into the information if you want to do so. If you are wanting to teach through Genesis and can only get one commentary, go with Wenham or Hamilton. If you are getting a second work, get this one. I would put this above Kidner's Tyndale work because of the speacialty of this book.
