As anyone who's researched his or her family tree knows, a basic part of understanding ones ancestors is knowing when they were born, how long they lived, and when they died. Here, in The Genesis Genealogies lies that crucial core information about the forebears of Christianity.
The former moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Korea, Rev. Abraham Park, has meticulously analyzed the information in the Book of Genesis. Taking the precise date references in Genesis and performing math calculations forward and backward in time, Park builds a complete chronological timeline from Adam to the Exodus. But understanding the actual timing of events is only a start. Rev. Park then shares decades of his biblical scholarship to help us more deeply understand the layers of meanings that the text offers us. Features commentaries by a range of biblical scholars and includes appendices of fascinating supporting details, as well as a handy index.
