Genesis a book worth digging through
April 8, 2012
The Promised One
The Promised One provides a fresh look at the book of Genesis, leading women in discovering how its stories, symbols, people, and promises point to Christ. Over ten weeks of study, participants will see Christ as the agent of creation, the offspring who will crush the head of the serpent, the ark of salvation, the source of the righteousness credited to Abraham, the substitutionary sacrifice provided by God, the Savior to whom the whole world must come for life, and much more.
Each weekly lesson includes questions for personal study, a contemporary teaching chapter that emphasizes how the passage fits into the bigger story of redemptive history, a brief section on how the passage uniquely points to what is yet to come at the consummation of Christ's kingdom, and a leader's guide for group discussion.
Nancy Guthrie is the kind of author that brings out little gems that show a bigger picture of the book of Genesis. It is a must read for anyone that would like to explore Genesis. I have enjoyed that this book is an easy read and the format is easy to read while going through Genesis. I have look long and hard for books that delves into Genesis and that is exactly what Nancy Guthrie does.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Crossway Publishing, Inc. for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
