About the Author
Sidney Greidanus is professor emeritus of preaching at Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan.


Sidney Greidanus has been one of the most gifted advocates of 'redemptive historical' preaching, and in this book he provides yet another important resource for bringing that perspective to bear on the life and mission of the church. In a time when there is much confusion about what it means to preach in fidelity to the Scriptures, we very much need the lessons that he offers us here.
Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary
In his earliest work more than three decades ago, Sidney Greidanus helped revolutionize evangelical homiletics by demonstrating how Genesis 3:15 discloses the theme for all preaching in the Bible's earliest pages. . . Now in a culminating work of his career, Greidanus shows not only how Genesis 3:15 sets the theme of Scripture but also how the entire book of Genesis structures God's agenda and our understanding of Christ's redeeming work. This is a master stroke from one of the seminal thinkers and writers in homiletics.
Bryan Chapell, Covenant Theological Seminary
A book for every preacher's library. Not only will it help you preach many Christ-centered sermons on Genesis, but also its repetition of fundamental insights and skills will help you develop homiletical muscle memory that will hopefully transform you from workman to an artisan, from a duffer to a Tiger.
