Back to Genesis

Everything begins in Genesis except God.  He's the source from which the
universe came into being.  Space, planets, animal, plants, and human life
were brought into existence by God's creative breathe. Genesis definitively
answers nagging questions like:  What is there? How did it get there?  Did
it have a beginning? What or who is responsible?  Where did death come from?
Did Adam and dinosaurs share the garden? How should I approach my job? Why
is it wrong to murder?  What is the gospel?  How does Satan tempt me today?
What is God's response to sin?  What's so special about Israel?
