Westminster John Knox Press Genesis for Everyone, Part 1: Chapters 1-16 (Old Testament for Everyone)

The book of Genesis is a lively read featuring familiar biblical tales such as the creation of the world, Adam and Eve and the forbidden fruit, Noah and the flood, Abraham and Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, the Tower of Babel, and Sodom and Gomorrah.

While readers may know the facts of these stories, Goldingay's work will instill in them a deeper understanding of their spiritual and theological significance. True to the For Everyone series' goal, Goldingay writes in a thoroughly accessible and engaging style with chapter titles such as "Friday Lunchtime," "Bigamy, Music, Technology, Murder," "Babylon becomes Babble-on," "Stuff Happens," and "Two Guys Who Need Their Heads Banged Together."

AUTHOR ATTEMPS TO USE "FALSE SCIENCE" TO SHOW GOD IS UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE HOW HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE. AN INSULT TO GOD AND BELIEVERS. AUTHOR ATTEMPTS TO DISCREDIT GENESIS AS NOT BEING TRUTHFUL AND FACTUAL. SUGGEST HE READ 2 PETER 2 AND BEWARE.
