Abstract:

D. T. Niles of Ceylon, one of the best-known Asian churchmen, brings his lively, penetrating method of "Bible study" into the life of the Book of Genesis. He claims that Genesis is very important for understanding the Bible as a whole. It is a constituent part of Biblical revelation. "As I have tried," he says, "to wrestle with the Biblical text in Genesis I have glimpsed this truth again -- the truth that the God of the New Testament is the God also of the Old, and that in Jesus is the event which explains the hidden mystery of the Old Covenant and the open mystery of the New. The Old Testament records more than the preparation which took place before Jesus came. It records the deeds of God." Dr. Niles helps the reader to be not just a spectator but a participant in Biblical events. The Book of Genesis will be a new book for many readers after seeing it again under the guidance of D. T. Niles. --
