Think that Genesis is boring? Think again! Genesis Is God-Breathed and Useful takes you on a wild ride to revisit the Bible heroes you might remember from childhood, but in a way that never made it into your Sunday school classes and vacation Bible schools. Take a wry tour through the faith and foibles of the patriarchs. There is something for everyone: scandal and heroism, romance and rape, shrewdness and swindling, promise and power. Genesis Is God-Breathed and Useful brings the ancient Bible characters off the page in all their humanity, while transporting the reader across the millennia to the all-to-contemporary challenges that the former faithful have faced. The book points you into the text, and catapults you into the scene, as it challenges you with the question: "What would you do in this situation?" The questions in the text force the reader to become familiar with the text, not as they have "heard it said," but as the text really is. There will be surprises for those at all different waystations on their walk of faith. Those that have never heard of these characters will see them as all too human, which makes God's redemptive work in their lives all the more compelling. Those that grew up with these characters will meet them again, but this time as adults, and this book will make for a compelling reunion. Experience Genesis as you never have before: as "God-breathed and useful..." 2 Timothy 3:16.
