Publisher's Summary

The continuation of Dennis Prager's bestselling five-part commentary, The Rational Bible.

Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated? Why do our friends and neighbors - and sometimes we ourselves - dismiss the Bible as irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things? This explanation of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today’s issues, but completely consistent with rational thought.

The rstional bible: Geneis

Excelent narration. Great explanation of Genesis. Makes the book come alive with the thorough ecplanations by the author. It makes me want to know more. Great secobd book after Exodus. I wish and I hope that Dennis Prager continues the series with either of tge remaining 3 books of the Pentateuc.

Dennis Prager does it again.

I thoroughly enjoy this book series. While I've read the Old Testament, Prager adds invaluable information and I cannot wait to see the other books in the Old Testament to get this treatment and add value to the scriptures.

So glad I bought this!

Tom Parks did a fine job narrating “The Rational Bible: Genesis” by Dennis Prager. As usual, Dennis does not disappoint! I liked this so much that I purchased “The Rational Bible: Exodus”. As I Christian, I found his Jewish thought to be informative and inspiring; also, I greatly appreciated his observations about Christian thought regarding this book of the Torah. I listened to it almost nonstop myself, and I am going through it one chapter at a time with my youngest son.

A must read/listen if context is important to you.

If you aren't the kind who likes the use of random scripture quotes to back a particular belief, but rather want to deeply understand God's word, this book is a must.

Great insight from Jewish perspective

Heard author on Fox and Friends and seemed well versed. Went deep into most of stories in Genesis and gave Hebrew words which in in some changes the story as relayed in Christian bibles. Always been under impression Joseph brothers sold him into slavery and Dennis’ analysis showed they threw him in pit and others retrieved Joseph and did the selling. Good outline and recommend for Jews and Christians alike

OMG so helpful in understanding the Bible

A few times the essays are a little long and you kinda forget where you were at in the Bible, that wouldn't be a problem if it were written.

A must buy!

I had no idea that Peniel(in Hebrew) = Face of God (Genisis 32:30)

It cant be a coincidence that the Pineal (slighlty different spelling but same pronunciation) gland is a dream center of brain. Mind blown.

Otherwise, great book, very informative, and id definitely reccomend to others.

Makes the Bible come alive!

Wow! The Genesis story is fascinating. As a Christian, I appreciated the Hebrew nuances discussed in such a cogent, authoritative manner. The only thing that would have made this better would have been Dennis reading it! The reader is very good though, obviously he read through each section before reading it for the recording, because he shows an understanding of the content through every inflection of his voice. I rate this book better than the Exodus volume! Bravo, Mr Prager!
