Have you ever wondered how the world was really created, or how man came into being, or does it really matter what the Bible has to say on the subject? Does science differ from or have a quarrel with the biblical account of Creation? Or perhaps, is the quarrel really with the theories of men? Genesis is the book of the foundation of all biblical revelation. This in-depth course will teach us to know our Creator in deeper ways. We will also gain insight into who we are in relationship to our Maker. But most of all, we will see Redemption, the thread which begins in Genesis and is woven through the entire fabric of God’s revelation. As a result, we will learn how to view ourselves, our world, and our entire lives through the truths established in this precious book.
Workbooks (“Genesis, Part I – The Creation” and ”Genesis, Part 2 – The Fall, the Flood, and the Nations”) can only be ordered from Precept.

In this study, gain fresh insight and encouragement from Psalm 23. Explore the depths of God's compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth. Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd's goodness throughout each season of life.
