A knowledge of the contents of the book of Genesis, the book of beginnings, is necessary if we are to understand the other books of the Bible. The following books of the Scriptures only expand and clarify that which is found in condensed form in the book of Genesis. A careful study of the book of Genesis is imperative for all who desire to full know “Him that is from the beginning,” John 2:13. Perhaps the value of this concise study of the book of Genesis can best be understood when the reader realizes that months of prayerful study and meditation in the Word have been compacted into its pages along with all the knowledge gleaned from the pages of several of the best commentaries on Genesis and from personal conferences with recognized authorities.
