Who are we? Where do we come from? Why is the world in such a mess? What is the meaning and purpose of life?
These are the fundamental questions of human existence that every generation asks. And they are the very questions that the first few chapters of the book of Genesis seeks to answer by pointing us to our origins.
These brief chapters that open the Bible have drawn more attention and controversy than many other parts of the Bible. But the author didn't write to stir up controversy but rather to point us to profound and powerful answers to our deepest questions. The answers, he says, are to be found in the God who made us and who loves us.
These introductory studies in Genesis aim to get to the heart of what this foundational part of scripture is saying about our creator. The answers to all these questions are found here, and by studying what he says carefully, we will discover some wonderful things about God, some disturbing truths about ourselves, and some surprising things about His world. And the final study takes us to the conclusion of the Genesis story as it is revealed in Jesus Christ.
