Genesis For Ordinary People (2nd Edition)

Paul Poulton

Paperback 2017-01-30

Publisher Description

The book of Genesis is considered by some people to be inspired, truthful, and sacred. Others think of it as a fairy story and wonder why people still believe such an ancient book. Genesis for Ordinary People doesn't shy away from the questions that go through people's minds as they read the first book in the Bible. Are there reasons it is trustworthy? In addressing these questions, Paul Poulton follows the intriguing thread that runs through the entire book of Genesis. He takes a good look at the story's wonderful (and flawed) people and beings, inviting readers to gaze into the garden of Eden to witness the reality of what actually happened there. He follows the storyline of Genesis but often looks back, adding a fresh perspective to Adam and Eve's enthralling lives. A fascinating picture emerges as the layers of Genesis accumulate. Paul Poulton is a British writer, speaker, and singer-songwriter. He is the son of a minister and has known the Scriptures from his earliest years. He writes regularly for CrossRhythms and performs as a solo artist and with his band, the Paul Poulton Project. He talks about life, human idiosyncrasies, faith, God, and philosophy, seasoning his discourses with humor. Paul's first book, Fishing for Praise, was published in 2008 by Wipf and Stock.
