Editorial Reviews

"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.

Publisher's Summary

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!

Dr. Creasy brings the Bible to life!!!

It was an amazing and enlightening series of lectures about Genesis. Dr. Creasy brings the characters and events to life through geography and history. He takes an in depth approach to the Bible using factual historical events and geographical locations of each section in the Bible. It becomes easier to picture each story as an actual event rather than 'just a story' in the Bible.

He is amusing and keeps most of the lectures light and 'real.' There is nothing boring or droning about these lectures. He speaks clearly and makes these lessons understandable to anyone listening.

A must buy for anyone interested in understanding the Bible and applying it to life now.

Excellent Bible Study

Where does Genesis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first in the Logos Bible Study series.

Dr. Creasy covers Genesis verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of the geography and its relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study.

That context has opened up the Bible to me in new ways.

Any additional comments?

As explained in the opening chapter, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on.

I have been looking for a guideline online, but haven't been able to find one yet. If I find one, I will try to post the next book to be read in each book's review once I complete each book.

Great Beginnings - I think I'll buy another !

What did you like most about Genesis?

Bill is a great speaker and his comments are funny and in tune with todays thinking.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What about Dr. Bill Creasy’s performance did you like?

Funny, easy to like, down to earth guy ;o)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.
