The book of Genesis is one of the most influential writings in history, looked to for centuries to help answer first-order questions of the origin and meaning of human life. This study guide takes you through Genesis as a whole and then helps you understand each of its individual sections as God begins his work of restoring his once-good creation through the family of one man, Abraham. The 36-lesson format is ideally presented for group or individual studies and will evoke deep conversation about all the wonderful themes of Genesis. It will also bring personal growth and life change through a whole new level of understanding and engaging God's Word. The Understanding the Books of the Bible study series helps readers understand the biblical story by not only talking about what the authors wrote, but also how they wrote. Quite often, recognizing whether a passage is poetry, proverb, or history and discerning how the author built his book will unlock its meaning for today's reader.
