Genesis: Blessings as You Begin
Going Forth Series
NEW RELEASE, NOW AVAILABLE!
Aren't beginnings exciting... and a bit terrifying? Starting a new job. Moving to a different city. Becoming a parent. All these events, and a host of others, make us feel eager, thrilled... and possibly nauseated.
The Book of Genesis is all about beginnings. Throughout those beginnings are innumerable blessings: some welcomed; others resisted. Genesis reminds us that blessings persist in spite of hardships, and many times, the blessing is the hardship.
Dr. Carren Marvin, in her second book of the Going Forth series, which explores the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, gives readers a glimpse into God's beginnings and a reminder that He is the God of all their beginnings, too.
