Genesis is a book about beginnings. It declares that creation is an act of God and His desire was to create man and woman for a relationship with them. It describes the first man, the first woman, and the first marriage. It speaks to the first temptation and first sin. It also points us to our first sign of hope .. . the provision of God for the sin of the world. God’s design for the family is the only healthy and holy way to experience the greatness of the created world and to enter into the intimacy of a loving relationship with God.
