The Relevance of Genesis – The importance of the first 11 chapters of the Bible to our modern world.
We just finished the Relevance in Genesis conference with Tim Chaffey. You can read Tim’s bio here. You can also find out more about Tim at his Midwest Apologetic’s site. Tim is a prolific researcher and author. You can find his writings and DVD’s here.
Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is the foundation of all Christian doctrine. In it, we learn about the triune God, the origin of all matter, the nature of man, why suffering and death exists, and the reason Jesus came to sacrifice His life for us. Genesis also contains accounts of the creation, the Global Flood, and the Tower of Babel – accounts that many Christians don’t see the importance of taking literally.
But if Genesis is not true, how can we trust the rest of the Bible? Tim Chaffey of Answers in Genesis gave us compelling arguments for the first 11 chapters of the Bible and their importance to our modern world.
