In the Beginning: Understanding the Book of Genesis
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth — Genesis 1:1
In one simple statement, no more than 10 words in length, we are given a profound divine revelation. We are told that there was (and is) God, He was there in the beginning, and at that beginning He created the heaven and the earth. This simple story in told in an amazing book called Genesis.
The first 11 chapters of Genesis speak about the beginning of all things, and the last 39 chapters are devoted to one man and his growing family. Genesis is not just the first book, but the foundational book, of the Bible. The whole of divine revelation rests on its shoulders. Should Genesis be proven untrue or unreliable, the entire Biblical edifice would collapse with it.
