Publisher's Description

  • MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide Series, Volume 1
  • A Study in Genesis 1-11

Where did we come from? Why is there pain and suffering? Who committed the first murder? Why are there so many languages in the world? The first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis have the answers to these questions and moreⷕproviding us with the history of the human race in its earliest years, prior to the time of Abraham.

Before Abraham takes an in-depth look at the creation story, continuing through Noah and the Flood, and concluding with the Tower of Babel and the dispersion of the nations. These studies include close-ups of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as "Sin and the Nature of God" and "Heritage and the Family of God."

This twelve-volume MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide series provides intriguing twelve-week examinations of the entire Old Testament. Each guide looks at a portion of Scripture from three perspectivesⷕhistorical studies, character studies, and thematic studiesⷕand incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Old Testament with guidance from John MacArthur.

    We love Dr. MacArthur's bible studies. His notes are informative and his questions are thought provoking. We have studied many New Testament study books written by him. We have talked about taking a fresh look at the Old Testament and thought we would start at the beginning with Genesis since he now offers this series.

    After I led my family through this study, my wife has begun a women's Bible study at our house. The women love it, and Dr. MacArthur's studies always challenge the learner to a greater discernment and understanding of Scripture.

    I am going through this study with a friend and it has been really good so far. I look forward to it every week and I am excited to see how God will use it in conjunction with His Word to open our hearts to the truth and bring us into closer fellowship with Him. As with MacArthur's other studies, I would definitely recommend this to others.

    As a creation scientist I would rate this study guide as the best I am aware of for a general biblically based study of Genesis 1-11.

    Good depth of study because it is broken up into 3 sections- First deals with history, then the characters, then the themes & finally a summary of key principles. Content is easily understood by all in our group of 23 from different denominations. The author takes a literal view of the biblical history in Genesis, especially of Creation. Two in our group don't share this view which has made for some very interesting discussions. We have done further research with other materials (DVD's) to back up these literal views and enrich the study. Be warned, the beginning chapters of Genesis can be controversial. John MacArthur is clear on his stand- I think he has researched the biblical account thoroughly. This study is well written & organized and has caused us all to look deeply into what we truly believe about the Bible and creation itself. It has been many years since we went to public schools where the theory of evolution was taught, and this study awakened a need to revisit that view, question it, & do further research. This has turned up many new recent scientific findings that substantiate the biblical view of a 6 day creation, proved the theory of evolution to be impossible, and has served to deepen our faith in God's Word as absolute truth.
