Publishers Description "Genesis 1-11: God Makes a Start "is an excellent Bible study resource for teens wanting a better understanding of how and why God created the world, and why the earliest events of the Bible should matter to us today. The stories of Adam and Eve, of their sons Cain and Abel, of the people who provoked the flood and those who built the tower of Babel: all of these stories display our human tendency to overstep our limits as creatures, to take control of our lives apart from God, to treat one another unjustly. The Genesis accounts tell us that our unhappiness stems from our failure to trust and obey our creator. Against this background, Jesus' life and death emerge as a deliberate reversal of the deep-rooted human tendency to distrust and disobey God. Designed as a guided discovery, Six Weeks with the Bible for Catholic Teens introduces high school students to books of the Bible by integrating the biblical text with insightful questions to help youth discern what Scripture means for their lives today. The series provides students with a clear explanation of Biblical text, opportunities for prayer, and a means to enter into conversation with God.

More About Kevin Perrotta & Gerald Darring
Most of my writing tries to help ordinary people understand the Bible and read it as God's word for today. In the 1990's I worked as editor of a magazine with a title that matches that intention: God's Word Today. Then, into the 2000's, I wrote and edited a series of short books called Six Weeks with the Bible (from Loyola Press). Each of these is designed for six sessions of reflection and discussion on a part of Scripture (for example, the gospel of Luke) or a theme in Scripture (for example, Finding Christ in Your Marriage--I wrote that one with my wife Louise). Lately I have been working as an editor on a series of books called Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (from Baker Academic Press).
Besides writing and editing, I teach Scripture part time. At present I'm teaching an introduction to the Old Testament in Siena Heights University's program in theological studies for the Catholic diocese of Lansing, Michigan. Also, I'm teaching a course on the gospels at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit.
I've led pilgrimages to the Holy Land and am planning to lead another in the fall of 2010.
Church membership: I belong to the Byzantine wing of the Catholic Church.
Family: I have six wonderful children and fifteen absolutely marvelous grandchildren.
