Genesis is one of the most important books in the Bible - it would definately be in the top ten. It is a story that captures the glory and desparation of the human condition, as well as the fierce judgment and saving mercy of God. In case you missed any of the posts, here's a list, with asterisks beside what I think are the most interesting ones:
  1. Mommy, What's a Myth? (initial thoughts)
  2. The Opening Theme (1)
  3. *Let Us Do Good, That Evil May Abound (2-3)
  4. From Stealing Fruit to Killing Brothers (4)
  5. God Gives Up On Us . . . Almost (5-10)
  6. *The Curse in Retrospect (11)
  7. The Lord Does Something New (12-15)
  8. Sulfurtheropy (18-19)
  9. *It Counts As Righteousness (16-17,21-22)
  10. These All Died in Faith (23-25)
  11. The Violent Take it by Force (26-28)
  12. An Awful Dirty Trick (29-31)
  13. *The Face of God (32-36)
  14. A Brother is Born for Adversity (37-39)
  15. *Seated at the Right Hand of Power (40-41)
  16. When Brothers Dwell in Unity (42-45)
  17. End of Act One (46-50)
  18. The Story of Genesis (summary)
  19. Difficulties with Genesis (and what to do about them)

Thanks Oyarsa. You have a wonderful looking blog. I look forward to reading your thoughts on Genesis. Too late now. But later.
