In this detailed look at God’s book of beginnings, William W. Grasham delves into the creation story, the selection of Abraham and his descendents as God’s chosen people, and the initial prophecy of God’s plan to save mankind from the eternal consequences of sin. In giving the accounts of individual lives, Genesis answers mankind’s great philosophical questions of where we originated, why we are here, and where we are going.
The key feature in this history of the inhabitants of the ancient world is their relationship with God. His dealings with His people reveal His divine nature: His righteousness and wrath, provision and punishment, and faithfulness to every promise. This is the one true God who deserves the central role in the life of every person today. Anyone who takes a careful look at Him through the narratives along with brother Grasham will come to know God better. For those who preach and teach, the applications contain various illustrations and sermons that will enhance their lessons.
