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Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated?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.

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.

Fantastic commentary. Lots of interesting insights

I love the way Dennis inserts essays throughout to break up the commentary and give deeper insight into how it fits into the bigger picture.

Replay function used a 1000 times

On this first reading, I have read this book three times via the use of the replay button.
Now I will re-read in parallel with the Bible.
Thank you Mr. Prager and to all those that contributed to it.

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.

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.

Fantastic commentary...and I'm Christian

I have listened to Dennis Prager for 30 years, bought one of his books, and have seen him grow in his acceptance of Christians. I've always respected his logical and moral sensibilities and Bible knowledge, so when I heard he had written two commentaries on the Torah, I was I was immediately interested.

I was not disappointed. He brought many insights to Genesis from Jewish tradition to my attention. Most of it fit perfectly with my own understanding of ancient history and Judaism, but added more color and historical context that I hadn't yet appreciated.

I would love to see Dennis accept the messiahship of Jesus Christ someday. But at least I know Christians have a true ally in Dennis Prager in defending ethical monotheism from the increasingly nasty attacks from athists/secularists.
