In the initial stories of Genesis, humans show themselves to be addicted to sin while God shows that he will not give sin a free pass. But, equally significantly, through the token of grace, God shows that he will not give up on us. The Story of God Bible Commentary explains and illuminates each passage of Scripture in light of the Bible’s grand story.
In this special Olive Tree collection not only can you read the Story of God Bible Commentary (SGBC) Genesis volume, but you can also supplement and augment the text with author Tremper Longman in the accompanying 2-volume Genesis: Audio Lectures set.
The first commentary series to do so, SGBC offers a clear and compelling exposition of biblical texts, guiding everyday readers in how to creatively and faithfully live out the Bible in their own contexts. The ebook text's story-centric approach is ideal for pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and laypeople alike.
The accompanying audio lectures allow you to step inside the classroom with author Tremper Longman III for a unique audio experience that, unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, includes high-quality live recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources with engaging and challenging lessons. These lessons offer a clear and compelling introduction to Genesis, guiding viewers in creatively and faithfully living out its message in their own contexts. Longman's story-centric approach is ideal for formal and informal students alike, and for everyone who wants to better understand Genesis in today's world.
