The first 11 chapters of Genesis weave a majestic narrative of the origin of Earth and human history. Are they a collection of myths or do they reflect what really happened? From creation and the fall to Noah and Abraham, Schaeffer demonstrates that Genesis provides a solid basis for answering tough questions posed by modern seekers. 167 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.
Genesis is a book of origins--the origin of the universe, the origin of life and the origin of man. It places man in his cosmic setting, shows his particular uniquness, explains his wonder and his flaw, and begins to trace the flow of human history through space and time. Many today, however, view this book as a collection of myths, useful for understanding the Hebrew mind, perhaps, but certainly not a record of what really happened. Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer challenges that view and shows how the first eleven chapters of Genesis stand as a solid, space-time basis for answering the tough questions posed by modern man.
Francis A. Schaeffer founded the L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland and was the author of many books, including . Until his death in 1984, he was also a noted speaker with a worldwide ministry. His ministry continues through his books, with over two million copies in print.
