Not sure why this is classified as a "children's commentary" because it knocked my socks off and left me both inspired and confounded. A great, great, smart read for family devotions. Ganz goes deep. She obviously understands what Jesus meant when He said, "and a child shall lead them" because this commentary is the smartest most respectful children's devotional I have ever laid hands on. She definitely took a page of Charles Spurgeon's/Charlotte Mason's book by not writing twaddle and dumbed do ...more
I walked through this with my family as we are going through the Pentateuch. Nancy Ganz has put together a beautiful work of commentaries, covering the entire Pentateuch. These come with wonderful craft ideas, field trips, and most importantly- a high view of scripture in the reformed tradition with careful exegesis and application. I would get this; whether you have children or no- most of us adults would be challenged and blessed by her thoughtful commentary.

The subtitle of this book is “A Commentary for Children,” though I don’t think that’s an accurate categorization. It is not so much an explanation of Genesis as it is a retelling with musings by the author. Some of these musings are helpful connections (like contrasting the tower of Babel to Pentecost), some are a little bizarre (a diary of Noah) and I found some unnecessarily contentious (calling Charles Darwin “a great destroyer of the faith” and a “Philistine”).

I highly recommend this book! It will bring the bible to life and make your children think about God's word. I marvel at the conversations we have around the kitchen table about the truth of God's word after reading this with them. I would recommend this book for children 2nd grade-High School. It is a fantastic read-aloud as a family for devotions.

The content was solid. Sort of a running commentary-devotional for children. I used this as a parallel source as I have read through Genesis with my kids. My kids didn't use the book directly. I didn't use the study guide in the back (it looks like it would be perfect for use in a school or homeschool context). Some of the chapters were surprisingly long. I appreciated the author's heart for God that was seen in each chapter. Her love for God helped keep before me what it is we are actually tryi ...more

I received this in the mail today and I am excited about the way this comentary teaches children the Word of God and the Love of God. I am looking forward to digging into Genesis during our evening devos and tea time.

Ha. 4 years later... I received this in the mail again, this time coming from my parents in America. Again, I am enjoying it, and using it as I prepare to teach 4th grade Bible this year. Our second unit is Genesis.
Although this is a commentary for kids, I am continually surprised at Nancy Ganz's insights that I have never thought of before. If you're looking for a good book for family devotions, seriously consider this one. It also includes review questions, craft ideas, activities to involve your kids, and song suggestions. My kids (4 and 7) love this book!
Loved this book. We used it as a devotional, and although you would think from the text and language that it was above the heads of younger kids, my littler ones listened and gained a lot from this book. It is gospel-centered and reveals to a young audience how God foretold the coming of Christ since the beginning.
