In Genesis the curtain rises on our story. Genesis introduces most of the major themes in the Bible. Listen closely as Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy takes you through the story of creation, the fall of man, grace, atonement, faith, justification, redemption and much more in this extraordinary story of beginnings. Starting with Genesis 1-11, the “primeval chapters,” follow the story as God introduces the plan of Salvation in Chapter 12, and then he makes good on it through three unfolding triptychs: the stories of Abraham/Isaac, Isaac/Jacob and Jacob/Joseph. This is brilliant story telling that stands shoulder to shoulder with the world’s greatest literature. And no one tells the story as well as Dr. Creasy!
"In the beginning…" So begins perhaps the most familiar verse in the bible, and so begins this fascinating lecture series. Dr. Bill Creasy, retired literature professor at UCLA, turns Genesis, this most fundamental of all texts, into a story that comes alive with his lucid, entertaining, and funny explication. With a clear, energetic voice replete with intellectual curiosity, Creasy approaches Genesis from the perspectives of history, geography, political science, and literature. Full of familiar stories with a fresh, invigorating perspective, Creasy gives listeners a new zest for this first book of the bible.

Great Beginnings - I think I'll buy another !
Bill is a great speaker and his comments are funny and in tune with todays thinking.
When you read parts of the bible you do think - what is going on here? Really? That actaully was the case! etc. It is good that Bill clarifies what you originally thought, and then puts into context for you.
Funny, easy to like, down to earth guy ;o)
The factual data that Bill provides is great. He takes you right back to the era of Genesis. This happened because of this, and that, and they probably had this because in that time ... etc.
Bill has wealth of knowledge on the area, time and people of the book of Genesis. He uses lots of maps and draws on factual history.
