The Bible’s first book, The Book of Origins (as Genesis is referred to in Greek) divides into two parts: the pre-history and creation stories (Chapters 1–11) and the Abraham family cycle of stories from Genesis 12 to the end, Genesis 50.
This workbook covers the first 25 chapters, ending at the death of Abraham, just as his son, Isaac, is coming into view. The workbook provides maps and historical background as well as insights into authorship (including the Documentary Hypothesis of the three distinct authors: J, E and P).
Each chapter has between four and six thoughtful questions that reveal key themes. The questions are designed to prompt readers to think of new ways they might view such familiar material.
