Brief Description

Sessions with Genesis is a ten-session study unit designed to provide a compelling look at the book of Gensis. Each session is followed by a thought-provoking page of questions that allow for a deeper experience of the scriptural passages. These resources pages can be used by seminar leaders during preparation and group discussion, as well as in individual Bible study.

Immersing us in the book of Genesis, Tony Cartledge examines both its major stories and the smaller cycles of hope and failure, of promise and judgment. Genesis introduces these themes of divine faithfulness and human failure in unmistakable terms, tracing Israel’s beginning to the creation of the world and professing a belief that Israel’s particular history had universal significance.
