    Abstract:
    Jacques Doukhan is both the author of Genesis and the editor of the Seventh-day Adventist International Bible Commentary. Genesis is the first release of this series and is intended as a model for all subsequent commentaries. Similar to other biblical commentaries, Genesis covers the entire book of Genesis. In this regard, the editors mention two important pieces of information in the preface: the project’s intent is to reach beyond our confessional frontiers and also to serve as an update to the classic Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary (SDABC). The main difference in the title is the addition of “international”, which seems to indicate the diversity of the authors’ backgrounds. Jacques Doukhan, for example, is originally from Algeria, grew up and received education in France and was Andrews University’s professor for decades. Doukhan earned a Ph.D. in Hebrew and Hebrew Literature from the University of Strasbourg and a Th.D. from Andrews University (USA). His Th.D. dissertation was on Genesis (“The Literary Structure of the Genesis Creation Story,” 1978), which means that he has a deep knowledge of the subject at hand. Genesis is over five hundred pages long (including bibliography) and follows the verse-by-verse commentary formula.
