The message of Genesis 1-11 : the dawn of creation by David John Atkinson( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genesis shows us how and why we are. It uncovers the origins of evil. It illuminates the meaning of freedom. It expresses the harmony of creation. And it offers hope for the renewal of our natural world and for the healing of our broken relationships. "Genesis 1-11 is really an overture to the rest of the Bible." So writes David Atkinson in his introduction to this thoughtful and spiritual guide to the opening chapters of Genesis. Writing as a scientist and as a pastor, Atkinson avoides technicalities and speculation and provides a skillful guide to the text's theological significance. While many commentaries on these chapters become tangled in problems of dating, authorship and historicity, this tour of the opening chapters of Genesis focuses on the issues that really matter. Atkinson's work will be a delight to all--seasoned expositors and novice readers alike
The message of Job : suffering and grace by David John Atkinson( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fact of suffering in the world challenges us with its questions. The book of Job is all about human suffering. Its portrayal of one man's sufferings, the ineffective responses of his friends, and his struggle for faith and understanding mirrors our own experiences in the world. David Atkinson offers a pastoral exploration of Job's story. His compelling exposition shows the power of the book of Job to reach into our human situation and to engage with our human needs. It offers, he believes, the strong comfort which comes from knowing that someone else has been there before. The message of Job is both a comfort to us in our own suffering and a model for our ministry to others in pain
