This is the first part of a verse by verse study in the book of Genesis.
The Book of Genesis is the book of beginnings. This book was written and compiled by Moses in the wilderness of Sinai along with 4 other books which together are commonly called the Pentateuch.
Genesis tells us where the cosmos began and then focuses down to God's dealing with mankind on this earth.
It tells of humanity's Fall into sin and God's rescue mission for all people.
It tells what happened first in many areas including (creation, sin, judgment, languages, races, marriage); but at the center of it all is God's call to Abram and the beginning of God's chosen people that would eventually bring the Messiah into this world.
Indeed, Genesis is the book of beginnings.

Tom, You have a great introduction. It promises to give a very intersting and readable view of Genesis. It should be great reading especially for those who are hungry for the Word, but don't know how to grasp the essentials that have an on-gong effect on all of our lives. God bless you as you proceed on your mission!
Tom, this is a good beginning on the Book of Genesis, but only a beginning. More! More! Yes, you have only just begun.
Very good summary, but I think a bit more detail (e.g. historical background) on the overall book would help the understanding of the book itself.
Nice to have it explained... Thanks for your kind comment on my poetry.
