Curious about ancient stories, once a part of our culture, that schools fail to teach today? Our Supreme Court gave guidelines so classes could read them, so why don't they? Are schools fearful that teachers will present the stories for religious purposes? Shouldn't students know of Eve and her fatal choice of pride's poison, a poison that took her life, sent one son to the grave, and condemned her firstborn to wander the earth? Shouldn't they know of Lamech, drunk on that same poison, singing self-exalting songs of brutality and leading the world into a violence that could be cleansed only by raging floods? Also, for their great comfort, shouldn't students know of Jacob's sons, so much like Cain yet united by a brother who laid aside pride's call for revenge--even pride's call for personal justice? This book leads public school students through the first part of the world's hidden-away bestseller, marking out a path through the legal thickets and pits of the Bible into the hearts of the ancients--people who had the same joys, sorrows, failures, and hopes that all of us have, even today.
A Student's Notes on Genesis is for curious-minded students and for public school teachers who know that education should include the world's bestseller.
