This is such an amazing book. It contains history, legend, poetry, controversy, beauty, anger, righteousness, hope, destruction, potential gained and lost, science, genealogy, worship, abuse, faith, trust, love, forgiveness, structure, integrity, failure, success, the dirt, the grime, the filth, the overcomer, the promise, the hero, the enemy, the plan, and on and on and on.
It is such a wonderful beginning to such a majestic history. In very simple and beautiful terms it explains and describes not only how our world came to be, but how we came to fall away, and how the plan for redemption begins. It begins the story of how God chose 1 man, 1 family, 1 line of people as His own to not only bless, but to be a blessing to the rest of the world.
It is a book that not only shows the worst of mankind (and the worst punishment), but also some of the best. How single individuals, standing in the face of sin, corruption, and “unjust” treatment can overcome to become the best that there is. Literally becoming the gateway to mankind’s future. Even more than that, that those same people are still just people. Just because they are the few and the proud, does not mean that they are the infallible. They don’t have to be perfect to be used by God.
In 2 days, this project begins in earnest, and i am extremely excited! How about you?
