In the Beginning: An Outline of Genesis 1-11
By: Hugo Bouter
The book is basically an exposition of the first eleven chapters of Genesis. It is worth reading. A book like this ought to serve as an introduction to a more in-depth exposition of Genesis.
Genesis means origin or birth. It is the “book of beginnings”, the basis of God’s self-revelation. Here we find the beginning of everything: the creation of the heavens and the earth, the origins of life, of man and his world.
Genesis 1 to 11, in particular, contain numerous important principles that have left their mark on world history and are still meaningful today. These chapters describe the earliest history of mankind until the building of the tower of Babel.
