Publisher's Description

Time after time choosing selfishness over selflessness, human beings invariably destroy themselves and wreck their societies. Only God can help, says Genesis. Yet God refuses to coerce. Instead he works with individual men and women who turn around--who stop trying to make a name for themselves and start trying to be a blessing to others. The transformation is slow and arduous. God waits. Captured in one of the world's best and best-known stories, this dynamic between God and recreated individuals leads from the universal chaos of Babel to blessing for all our world's peoples. Unfortunately, most of us overlook the dramatic story of God's work in early time because we read Scripture in disjointed pieces--and we think we've heard it all before! We miss the suspenseful, sweeping narrative of interconnected events. We miss the nuances of emotion and relationship between the characters. Now in Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard Paul Borgman fits the pieces back together--revealing God's story as if it had never been read before.

    I have been reading [i]Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard[/i] and strongly recommend it to all interested in Open Theism. It is not an apologetic on open theism, but rather Paul Borgman uses it while expositing various aspects of Genesis. Apparently, he came to open theism independent of other popular theologians and mentions the fact that while putting the finishing touches on the book he came across John Sander's [i]The God Who Risks[/i].Borgman emphasizes God's relations with Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph and shows how God mends them to bring about his ultimate desire of blessing all nations. Abraham's will is brought about by a long relationship with God over many trials, tests, and years to what God's will is. There is no manipulation here.You will find the author's grasp of Genesis quite compelling and entertaining. He has studied it for over 25 years before writing this book. And he believes, as I do, that narration as a genre reveals aspects of God that poetry, wisdom, and didactic portions of Scripture cannot.
