Overview

Do you want to make sense of life? Do you want a greater understanding of why the world is the way it is and why people are the way they are? Do you want a deeper understanding of Scripture and people of the Bible? Join us in 'Making Sense of It All' as we take a deep theological dive into and a fresh look at the first 12 chapters of Genesis. These amazing stories have all too often be relegated to children's Sunday School classes or Bible story books. They are immensely important for our understanding of God, of the Bible, the people of the Bible, and our world today. Rather than focus on the minutiae of the text as many writers and commentators have already done, the approach here is to stand back and look at the narratives as 'foundation stones' of meaning for understanding all the rest of Scripture and life in this world. In looking at these ancient, foundational narratives, the author intersperses a new/ancient approach to understanding Scripture with numerous stories from his own life growing up in various cultures, serving as a missionary, and pastoring churches in three countries. After reading this book, the reader will have a clearer sense of what is going on with this world, a better understanding of Scripture, and tools for dealing with the good, the bad, and the crazy in life. Making Sense of It All brings together theology, autobiography, storytelling, and reflection for a more readable, thought-provoking look at Scripture and how the ancient narratives apply to our daily lives.
