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.

Dr. Creasy brings the Bible to life!!!
Excellent Bible Study
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.
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.
