About this title

Synopsis:

One of the ways we might refer to the book of Genesis is the book of beginnings. It starts with the creation of the universe, after which God created the human pair from whom all peoples of the world have come. Genesis provides insights as to how sin came into the world, under what circumstances the people of Israel became God's covenant people, and how Israel's God is not simply a local deity or tribal god.

Throughout the book of Genesis, we learn that God wanted the people created in His image to know about Him. He demonstrates His desire for fellowship with humankind. He met people where they were and drew them toward himself, no matter how far humans strayed from God's plan. God also showed that He could not make a treaty with sin and that sin carries a punishment with it. God also proved He is a covenant God, one who gives and keeps His word.

Author Wilbur Williams brings scholarly support as well as archeological support to the validity of the biblical record. Dr. Williams shares his enthusiasm for the way that archeological discoveries verify the details of Genesis. As he presents the story of God and humanity from the book of Genesis, we are able to understand a bit more about God and ourselves.

An excellent resource for personal study, and especially helpful for those involved in the teaching ministries of the church, the Wesleyan Bible Study Commentary series will encourage and promote life change in believers by applying God's authoritative truth in relevant, practical ways. Written in an easy-to-follow format, you will enjoy studying Scripture insights that are faithful to the Wesleyan-Armenian perspective.
