On 11 February 2017, Atkinson was one of fourteen retired bishops to sign an open letter to the then-serving bishops of the Church of England. In an unprecedented move, they expressed their opposition to the House of Bishops' report to General Synod on sexuality, which recommended no change to the Church's canons or practices around sexuality. By 13 February, a serving bishop (Alan Wilson, Bishop of Buckingham) and nine further retired bishops had added their signatures; on 15 February, the report was rejected by synod.

Using very helpful titles and phrases, Atkinson sets the pace for this series of commentaries. I've grown to look to this series of commentaries for phrases that help communicate the truths of scripture in a catchy and memorable way. For example, he uses the term Majesty and Misery to describe the Creation event and the Fall. Sometimes an overview of a section is so well written that you can read his overview from the pulpit or to a small group or classroom.

As far as technical depth, this series is not designed to present technical depth, so I don't fault it for skipping over a lot of material.

Here's how I use this commentary: After researching the text and looking at deeper more technical works (like Hamilton, Wenham or Waltke) I sometimes use this commentary for developing the way I will communicate the crucial points I want to make.

If you are not oriented to more technical commentaries, this one will assist you. I'm glad it's in my library and am using it in my own Genesis series. I recommend it to you also.
