Paradise to Prison is a commentary, textbook and complete study guide to the book of Genesis. In very readable fashion the author explores the lives of the patriarchs as well as important doctrinal themes. Each chapter is carefully documented and sources from archaeology and ancient Near Eastern history are freely used. The writer's premise is that no other ancient literature surviving the ravages of time can rightly be compared to Genesis with its unsurpassed theological perspectives and vivid profiles of early man.

Sheffield Publishing Company is pleased to add this excellent and popular book to our list of reissues! Paradise to Prison has, for years, been considered among the best of commentaries on the book of Genesis from an evangelical perspective. Originally, the hardcover format's price may have made it difficult to consider as a supplementary text. We've reissued it as a paperback with a price that will make it affordable to students!From the Author:
In spite of changing trends and shifting theological interests, the Book of Genesis continues to command the attention of scholars throughout the world. The simplicity of its narratives and the inexhaustibility of its spiritual truth make its charm and value enduring.
Moses takes the reader from an awesome, sinless paradise to death and burial in Egypt. In between are his grand descriptions of the origin and fall of man, the destruction of the world by water, the judgement of Babel, and the exciting adventures of the Hebrew patriarchs.
Any modern study of Genesis must consider the vast array of material unearthed by archaeologists in the Near East. Where appropriate, we have also discussed the Hebrew text, geography, and ancient cultures. Comparisons between Genesis and its cultural background will not alone yield proper interpretations, however; the text still must be compared with other potions of Scripture.
Because space is limited, the biblical text is not quoted to any extent; we recommend that the reader have a Bible at hand while working through this volume.
Finally, we have attempted to make the study of Genesis practical and spiritually rewarding as well as intellectually informative. It is my hope that all who read this book will be drawn closer to the God of whom Moses spoke so eloquently.
