Be Basic (Genesis 1-11): Believing the Simple Truth of God’s Word (The BE Series Commentary) by Warren W. Wiersbe [REVIEW]


The world has become a confusing place. Every day we are confronted with cloudy moral issues that once seemed clear. When did the simple things get so complicated? But instead of wondering how we got here, maybe we should revisit how we got started. And there’s no better place to start than the beginning of God’s Word, the book of Genesis.

Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” commentary series, Be Basic has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe takes an insightful look at the fundamentals for a life well lived. Return to the beginning and discover life-changing truths about relationships, faith, sin, and spiritual fulfillment. Because in life, the key to a happy ending is found at the beginning.


This is the second book from the BE series that I have read. The author does a good job at explaining things in easy to understand language while still discussing deep topics.

I love this chart of the parallels between Genesis & Revelation.

I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.


  1. The chart is an interesting perspective.
    It’s like when God told Moses to be sure he made the Tabernacle exactly how he saw it in heaven.
    Scripture is like a parable, what he shows us in the beginning may very well point out the beauties we can expect to see.

  2. It always helps to return to the basics of who we are and what worked well. Had a session with someone today who migrated and she spoke about how going back to her roots helped. She forgot about basic things such as her relationship with God which helped her in the first place. God is good. 🙏🏾❤️
