Genesis: Power & Purpose
An extraordinary explanation of the Story of Creation, provocatively tackling questions normally ignored by others: What is light before the sun? What did God mean when he said, "in our imagine"? Why really is the 7th day blessed? And others.
Simple and inspiring, the author's explanations are all consistent with logic, finally supported by science and give meaning and guidance to everyday life. More
In this first book in the series, Life for Christians, the author indirectly tackles the life question, Where did I come from? This is perhaps the most difficult, yet the most important of all life's questions.
Difficult because who really knows the mind of God. The author doesn't claim this either, but does presupposes God is perfectly logical, as discovered by Einstein, and perfectly loving, as described by Jesus. With these in mind and the fact God is spirit, the author looks to the situation before Genesis, and what it would be like in the very, very beginning, before God created heaven and earth.
With a start in understanding why God would create heaven and earth, the author continues with a word by word examination of Genesis 1. From those pages, the author describes mankind's creation and what is our relationship with every thing else. We also discover the greatest power existing is bestowed onto us for better or worse.
Although the revelations may seem new, uncomfortable, or too good to be true to many Christians, the author makes numerous key cross-references to the New Testament to justify their consideration.
Furthermore, the interpretations add new relevance to the story of creation and the Bible because they are finally reasonable, justifiable to science and most important, consistent (they just fit in with everything else). No need for blind faith to act upon the message from the Bible - it is finally tied to reality. Amazingly, these explanations actually close the gap between science and God. If you were ever intrigued by The Secret, or The Law of Attraction, then you will love how this book explains them. Eureka?
All in all, this is a extraordinary twist on an old story. The presentation is enjoyable because of its simplicity, and sensibility. All this in about 60 pages, including pictures. Despite its brevity, it guarantees to give the reader a new perspective on The Bible and on life.
