Item description for GENESIS - A COMMENTARY SERIES FOR BIBLE STUDENTS (Wesleyan Bible Study Commentary) by Wilbur Glenn Williams & David A. Higle...
Overview One of the ways we might refer to the book of Genesis is the book of beginnings. It starts with the creation of the universe, after which God created the human pair from whom all peoples of the world have come. Genesis provides insights as to how sin came into the world, undr what circumstances the poeple of Israel became God's covenant people, and how Israel's God is not simply a local deity or tribal god. Throughout the book of Genesis, we learn that God wanted the people created in His image to know about Him. He demonstrates His desire for fellowship with humankind. He met people where they were and drew them toward himself, no matter how far humans strayed from God's plan. God also showed that He could not make a treaty with sin and that sin carries a punishment with it. God also proved He is a covenant God, one who gives and keeps His word. Author Wilbur Glenn Williams brings scholarly support as well as archeological support to the validity of the biblical record. Dr. Williams shares his enthusiasm for the way that archeological discoveries verify the details of Genesis. As he presents the story of God and humanity from the book of Genesis, we are able to understand a bit more about God and ourselves
