Book Information

Genesis is a book of beginnings. It introduces us to several biblical themes, including God's authorship of life. In a world that blames the Creator for disasters and credits luck or karma for life's blessings, God's people need reminding that he is crafting a wondrous story of redemption and grace. Within Genesis, we are called to play the part of faithful children so that we might overcome this world and inherit the one to come. In God's story, we discover how to live out our own. THE EPIC OF GOD will guide you passage-by-passage through the book of Genesis in hopes of deepening your trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Michael Whitworth in his book "The Epic of God" does a beautiful job of weaving together the story of creation and other biblical stories that transports the reader to a different time. The story flows smoothly and with a richness of depth into biblical meanings. It appears that nearly all of the major points found in Genesis are covered and given enriching thought and meaning. The author also includes talking points at the end of each chapter, which I found very rewarding and beneficial. I appreciate how the author speaks of his own personal life and experiences. He allows me as the reader to relate to him on a personal level. Covering the Book of Genesis the author helps me to see how my life can be valuable by learning from those in the past and looking forward to my future while enjoying my present. Preparing my life for eternity is the closing point of the book and a great way to allow me to look within my life for spiritual direction. "The Epic of God" is an excellent guide through the Book of Genesis. [Full Review]
