4.0 out of 5 stars Re-discover Genesis 25-50 Jan. 22 2010
By Canadianladybug TOP 50 REVIEWER
I really like this book. It is packed with interesting insights on the lives of Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. Each chapter of the book covers either one or two chapters of the book of Genesis. It details the signification of the text as well as some references from elsewhere in the Bible.
At the end of each chapter, you will also find some questions for personal reflection or group discussion. This book can be used in a group setting or for personal reflection. Each question will have you ponder on how God worked in the lives of Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. It will also make you think of events in your own life or how you would have reacted in a similar situation. The author has also included a notes section where you can read more details on what he wrote in the chapters.
If you want to discover more about the characters and the events from Genesis 25-50, if you want to get more insights about God in their lives and if you want to understand some Old Testament traditions, I strongly recommend that you dig into Be Authentic - Exhibiting Real Faith in the Real World.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do have real faith in God? Jan. 21 2010
I really like these bible studies because they are told in a story biographical manner. They don't whitewash the people, they present them as they are, the problems they faced, how they responded, and how God responded. Everyone makes mistakes and sins, that's reality. The message here is that God forgives the sin, stays true to his covenant and promised blessings, but doesn't erase the sin, the sinner still has to face the consequences of his sin, even if it is years later or the next day. I liked the quote that the author uses which to me sums up this part of the family tree: "Faith is living without scheming." How much better off these men would have been if they had had faith in God and hadn't schemed to have their own way. Having the study follow the leaders through 3 generations helped to show how characteristics follow through the people time after time, century after century. The ponderings at the end of each chapter helped to bring the theme of that chapter into the present day and also to review the chapter. It is an excellent bible study.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be Authentic Feb. 27 2010
By Cindy Loven - Published on
Do you often tire of the people portrayed to us via tv, internet or even books. People portrayed as perfect people. Warren Wiersbe has taken a look at three authentic men in the Bible, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. Men from the Old Testament who were definitely not perfect men. Men who had deception problems, problems being fair, and family troubles.

Broken down into thirteen chapters, each chapter examines the lives each man, their home lives and the problems they faced and caused. He also compares the similarities between the father's and sons. Each chapter ends with discussion questions perfect for personal Bible study or group studies. This book is a perfect tool for someone looking for a personal Bible study. It will guide you to be yourself and to show you the pitfalls that come when we give in to our personal choices, and the victory of following God's directions.

Part of Dr. Wiersbe's "BE" commentary series, this second edition of the book has been updated with the discussion questions, and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. Dr Wiersbe a respected pastor and author will guide you to discover how to live an authentic life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Insightful Commentary from Dr. Wiersbe April 7 2010
By Andrea Schultz - Published on
`Be Authentic: Exhibiting Real Faith in the Real World' is Dr. Warren Wierbe's ([..]) commentary on Genesis 25-50, covering the lives of Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. Here is Dr. Wiersbe's explanation for why we should study the lives of these three men:

Why study these three authentic men? Because we live in a world of pseudosaints and artificial heroes, many of whom are manufactured by the media and puffed by the promoters. The other thing some well-known Christians are known for is that they're well known. Apart from that, there's nothing distinctive about them. They belong to the herd. (pp. 13-14)

Dr. Wiersbe ([..]) has had a long and storied career. He's an internationally known Bible teacher and the former pastor of The Moody Church in Chicago. For ten years he was associated with the Back to the Bible radio broadcast, first as Bible teacher and then as general director. He has written more than 160 books, including the "BE" series of Bible commentaries (of which `Be Authentic' is one), which have sold more than four million copies. He and his wife, Betty, live in Lincoln, Nebraska. An interesting side note - the church which I attend is also attended by one of Dr. Wiersbe's daughters. What a blessing to have Dr. Wiersbe as a father!

I was especially intrigued by the chapters covering the life of Joseph (Genesis 39-50). He has always struck me as one of the most amazing people in the Bible. I am grateful for Dr. Wiersbe's insights on Egypt at the time Joseph lived there:

The Egypt in which Joseph found himself was primarily a land of small villages inhabited by peasants who worked the land and raised grain and vegetables. Thanks to their system of irrigation, the annual flooding of the Nile River supplied ample water for both the crops and the cattle. There were some large cities such as On (Hieropolis), where Ra the sun god was honored, and Memphis, devoted to Apis, the sacred bull, but most of the population lived in the small villages. (p. 107)

I appreciate the biblical - and extra-biblical - knowledge that Dr. Wiersbe imparts.

Joseph seemed to never be bitter and said one of my favorite passages in the Bible: "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives" (Genesis 50:20). Here Dr. Wiersbe makes a comparison of Joseph's life with another person in the Bible:

Joseph didn't minimize their sins, but he said, "You intended to harm me" (Gen. 50:20 NIV). He knew that there had been evil in their hearts, but he also knew that God had overruled their evil deeds to accomplish His good purposes. This reminds us of what happened on the cross. Peter said "Him [Jesus], being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; whom God raised up" (Acts 2:23-24 NKJV). Out of the greatest sin ever committed ever committed to humankind, God brought the greatest blessing than even came to humankind. (p. 184)

As is always the case, Dr. Wiersbe's commentary on Genesis 25-50 is profound and biblically based. Each chapter ends with Questions for Personal Reflection or Group Discussion. One can never go wrong in studying a commentary by this gifted and godly man. I would highly recommend it for personal or group study. My life/small group through our church is currently studying Dr. Wiersbe's ([..]) `Be Free: Exchange Legalism for True Spirituality,' which studies the book of Galatians. We are learning a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bible Study & Resource Feb. 19 2010
By Linda (FaithfulGrace) - Published on
I received a copy of this book as I was reading through the final chapters of Genesis.
Warren Wiersbe tears apart the scripture and provides information that aids in your biblical understanding. Then he provides GREAT discussion questions that make you think about what you've read and how to be an authentic doer of the Word. In an age when false teachers our abundant, it is refreshing to find teaching that is biblical and applicable. Great book, worth the money.
