--- Genesis ---
What is the book of Genesis really about? From pillars of slat to towers of Babel, it seems to be a collection of stories that neither science nor history. And even the bits we know and love still tell our children are also dark and disturbing. So what is it? Why do we read it? And how do we interpret it today?
Here is an opportunity to read the book of Genesis afresh, with an original introduction by Steven Cottrell which casts new light on one of the oldest of texts.
