The Book of Genesis is the book of beginnings. It sets the scene for everything in the whole Bible. In this book we learn about the creation of everything, the visible and the invisible. We discover how the universe was created. Genesis also teaches us where evil came from, explains the presence of pain, suffering and death in the world, and clearly reveals the solutions to these problems.

Vision Video has produced another excellent selection in their study of the Old Testament. Guest Anne Graham Lotz is a speaker and writer and the daughter of evangelist Billy Graham. Her insight and comments add depth and interest to the ten video segments covering Genesis. Each segment is approximately fifteen minutes in length. Viewers are then encouraged to stop the tape for discussion accompanied by the video study guide. The study guide is written by Blackham and includes in each Bible study segment key truths, short discussion of content, additional questions, and daily reading suggestions. The video follows a straightforward discussion format that will not appeal to those interested in entertainment styled Bible study. The discussions are well thought out and follow scripture. Bewes, rector of All Souls Church in London, and Blackham a theologian, provide continuity as hosts for each Book by Book study. It is appropriate for congregational and academic libraries as well as small group Bible study. - Reviewed by Sharon Hinton RN, BSN, LP, Librarian, First United Methodist Church, and RNR Parish Nurse Community Outreach, Floydada, TX
I am the director of a Adult Bible Faith Formation Group and we absolutely love the above mentioned Bible Study. We have learned so much in the passed 4 months or so...we still have a few chapters to go. We are looking forward to begin the Psalms Book by Book.... Genesis is very well done.
