Summary: Most Christians are familiar with the opening words of Genesis: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” But push beyond those iconic words, and sometimes the details get a little hazy. And strange. God walked around in a garden? Eve was made from Adam’s rib? A talking serpent? And what the in the world were the “Nephilim”? In The Characters of Creation, Daniel Darling re-introduces readers to the story they thought they knew. He explains the Bible’s story of how we got here and how things got messed up, and gives fresh insights into the first people in God’s unfolding plan of redemption—from Adam and Eve, The Serpent, Cain and Abel, and Noah.

The Characters of Creation

The book of Genesis isn’t considered the most complicated part of the Bible by any means. However I learned so much from this book. I thought I understood it but I didn’t in many cases. It’s so true when it says the author “reintroduces readers to the story they thought they knew.”

The book helps interpret what you read in the Bible and make sense of it. It also goes over what your takeaway should be from it. I found this the most helpful. Understanding the Bible is one thing. Learning from it is another.

As with all Moody Publishers books, it is short and sweet and to the point. I really appreciate that as I prefer reading many, shorter books to fewer, longer books.
