Beginnings A Study of the Call of God in Genesis



14 Sessions

Based on Walter Brueggemann's commentary Genesis, Beginnings takes a fresh look at some familiar Bible stories. Discussions of creation and creationism, the rebellion of humankind and the Flood bring new perspectives on today's issues.
