THE FIRST CHAPTERS OF EVERYTHING

Description Alasdair Paine writes in his introduction, "Genesis was not given to satisfy our speculation but to bring us urgent truths about God, our world and ourselves." This book was written to bring out the beginnings recorded in Genesis - where we came from, what went wrong, and the first promise of the Saviour to come. About Alasdair Paine Alasdair Paine is Vicar of St Andrew the Great, Cambridge and a trustee of Keswick Ministries. Featured Reviews Deceptively clear and digestible style... He is preoccupied with 'What is God saying to us here?' and refuses to allow the elephant of secondary issues to stand between us and the Genesis text (though he provides additional notes for the curious). Here is a book I found refreshing my spirit, stimulating my mind, and nourishing my soul. Dale Ralph Davis ~ Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina There is no better brief introduction to [Gen. 1-4] than this. Alasdair Paine helpfully engages with the complex questions of interpretation but never gets bogged down... The focus throughout is God's contemporary message to us through these chapters, which is presented with great clarity and powerful application. Vaughan Roberts ~ Rector of St Ebbe's, Oxford and Director of Proclamation Trust Anyone seeking a wise, accessible guide to the crucial first chapters of Genesis need look no further. I found Alasdair's sure-footed work most illuminating and enriching. Julian Hardyman ~ Senior Pastor, Eden Baptist Church, Cambridge Alasdair Paine is an accomplished geographer, pastor and Bible student and all these disciplines add to the rich depth of his writing. Alasdair's insights, illustrations and sensitive application make this a very healthy read indeed... Here's a hearty read for the health of your soul. David Cook ~ Retired Principal, Sydney Missionary and Bible College, Sydney, Australia
