I'm a seminary student and this was required for reading for class. The class was taught by Gordon Hugenberger at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary - Dr. Hugenberger was mentored by Meredith Kline (author of Kingdom Prologue).

I will agree with most the reviews - this was fantastic. Kline zooms in on Genesis and explores the theme of covenant, promise, and humanity in the antediluvian context.

Like most reviews, I will agree and say that Kline is not the best write

Complicated, and contradictory 2K theology.
Andy Smith
An absolutely fantastic book. I'll admit, at first Kline's odd diction and writing style was a turn off, but if the reader can push past the initial hardship, this mine is riddled with diamonds. A brilliant picture of the foundations of God's covenant that will color not only the readers view of Genesis, but of the entire Scriptures.
Henry Jin
The depth of Kline's thought and pondering over Genesis is amazing. Although this is not useful as a normal Genesis commentary, his insight into how the book sets/shapes the covenantal worldview is amazing.
Ronnie Curfman
Great book, but it is pretty dense. Meredith Kline is known for his difficult writing style, but this book is worth the work.
Tolivar Wills
Exegesis and Theological is deep and thick! If you can hang in there, it will change your life!!!
Patrick Malone
The standard by which all modern treatments of the book of Genesis are measured.
Jeff Fuller
A difficult read, but an overall interesting bok on Covenant Theology.
