Review: Preaching Christ from Genesis: Foundations for Expository Sermons

User Review  - Doug Dale - Goodreads

Like his book "Preaching Christ from Ecclesiastes", this book was very helpful to get insights into the place of the stories of Genesis in redemptive history. My co-pastor and I used it as a guide through our message series on Genesis and it was an excellent resource. Read full review

User Review  - Joe Haack - Goodreads

Used this for a sermon series on the life of Jacob. Only a few episodes in Jacob's life is covered, but when it was covered, this book was so very helpful. Read full review
