Description

This inspiring exposition goes back to the beginning. The early chapters of Genesis proclaim the origin of the world, and of human life on earth. David Atkinson applies what the finds here to the issues that face us at the end of the twentieth century. The first eleven chapters of Genesis, he argues, are an overture to the rest of the Bible. They evoke wonder as God is portrayed in his creative power and beauty. They reveal his living mercy and salvation even in his terrible judgement of those who turn from him and despoil the harmony of creation. David Atkinson vividly presents the magnificent cosmic setting of the early story of mankind. Here is the insight that allows us to understand both the greatness of God and the tragic flaw inherent in human beings today. Here is the key to our history. We are responsible participants in God’s creation who must, like Noah, confront the possibility of global catastrophe. David Atkinson is Fellow and Chaplain of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and author of a number of books, including ‘THE MESSAGE OF RUTH’ in this series. He is married, with two children, and his interests include music, drawing, walking and dabbling in photography.
