Description

"Karen Armstrong is a genius."-A. N. Wilson As the foundation stone of the Jewish and Christian scriptures, The Book of Genesis unfolds some of the most arresting stories of world literature-the Creation; Adam and Eve; Cain and Abel; the sacrifice of Isaac. Yet the meaning of Genesis remains enigmatic. In this fascinating volume, Karen Armstrong, author of the highly acclaimed bestseller A History of God, brilliantly illuminates the mysteries and profundities of this mystifying work. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Karen Armstrong's Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life. "A lyrical chronicle of one woman's wrestling with Genesis that can serve as a guide to others...?s notable for its scholarship as it is for its honesty and vulnerability."-Publishers Weekly "Armstrong can simplify complex ideas, but she is never simplistic."-The New York Times Book Review
