Lower than the Angels offers valuable help to schools and training courses to appreciate some of the deepest insights of the Old Testament. Men and women have been entrusted with a responsible job - that of being human. But we prefer to upgrade ourselves, to act as if we were by nature divine. This arrogance has far-reaching results throughout the whole of creation. Yet God will not let us go. In various ways he marks us as his own and shows that he is still trusting us to complete his loving plans. This is the inspired message of Genesis 1-11, as indeed of much of the Old Testament. A time-chart, suggestions for further reading, and questions for discussion are included.
