Publisher's note.

The Book of Genesis by Robert Candlish is a remarkable book, – among the very best of commentaries on Genesis, – and Spurgeon’s favourite. Rather than dealing merely with the technical intricacies of the text, the author focuses on passages and events so as to bring out their spiritual significance and application. Unusually, too, there is a rich supply of evangelistic help offered, making it an essential addition to every pastor’s library. The style is such that it makes wonderful reading for all Christians. Robert Candlish (1806-1873) served as Principal of New College, Edinburgh and as the minister of St George’s in the same city. This work draws on his scholarly credentials, but these never intrude, allowing his pastoral heart to come to the fore.
