Publisher's Summary

The book of Genesis is God’s autobiography and the foundation upon which all revelation rests. The purpose of this book is to give the origin of all things, including the cosmic order of the universe and the covenant relationship between God and his people.

Speaking the word from his eternal dwelling place of light, God fashioned everything from nothing, perfectly displaying his awesome wonder. We will never be able to take the mystery out of creation, for a God who is incomprehensible in his greatness accomplished it.

One of the overarching themes of Genesis is God’s blessing. His highest order is not the earth or the cosmos, it is man and woman, made after his kind, to be containers for his glory. Genesis showcases God’s redemptive heart toward the world - a theme that can be traced throughout the rest of the Hebrew scriptures.

"When God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was completely formless and empty, with nothing but darkness draped over the deep. God’s Spirit swept over the face of the waters. And then God announced: 'Let there be light,' and light burst forth!" (Genesis 1:1-3)

By far the best!

Genesis has been one of my favorite book of the bible. The timing of this translation is impeccable. Among other stories, the story of Joseph was narrated with such fire that I couldn't help seeing my self in the middle of it and cry like a baby. I can't wait to go over it again and study it. It has brighten my eye!

Loved it!

There is nothing like the Passion Translation for fully communicating the meaning of the Scriptures in our vernacular without compromising (generally speaking) on accuracy! I believe this will be the NIV of the next generation.

Life Changing

I have read and memorized the Word of God my entire life and this translation brings the meaning across so vividly that I weep as I listen, over and over, to passages that I know like the back of my hand. God loves me so much! That’s what I feel and KNOW when I listen to The Passion Translation.

Relatable

I enjoyed this translation. The use of current day phraseology made the text very relatable. No distraction from translating old phrases and their intent. highly recommended!

not as good as usual for the passion translation.

passion translation is usually filled with God's lies and passion for us, his people. The didn't come through in the same way in this book. shame. I was so looking forward to it.
