Arguments about science, about mythology, about literalism snatch the treasure of Genesis out of the hand of Christians. Why did God create people? That is the revealing question. God created people to love. God created people to love them ‒ as His sons and daughters. God created people to love in return ‒ to love Him and to love each other. God created people to be like Him. They were to share His nature. Love was to manage the world – the garden. But Genesis is profoundly true about evil and the wrecking of love. The garden is turned to thorns. God is Love and remains and the story of salvation begins. In this book ancient methods of study see glimpses of the Saviour in the unfolding of the story.
