The book of Genesis is written as narrative history by Moses about 1450-1410 B.C. The first week in December we will be in chapter 34 reading about Jacob and Leah’s daughter, Dinah. In coming weeks we will read more about the lives of Jacob, Esau, Joseph, Judah, Tamar, Potiphar, and Pharaoh. This book was written to record God’s demonstration of His love for all that He created. There are two main themes in this book—the people of God and the Promised Land.

Author: Tim Keller
It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn’t it full of regressive views? Didn’t it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace; a generous, gracious justice. This book offers readers a new understanding of modern justice and human rights that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical. Please consider joining in on the discussion.
