Does the book of Genesis really matter? How does it connect to real world issues? Does it actually affect our understanding of the major doctrines of Christianity? How does a proper understanding of Genesis help us understand the crucifixion of Jesus Christ? These issues and more are dealt with in this presentation. In his unique speaking style, Dr. Mitchell draws from personal experiences to showcase the foundational importance of Genesis. This illustrated presentation truly does “start from the beginning” and shows how the fundamental doctrines of Christianity have their roots in the first 11 chapters of the Bible. Although many would argue that Genesis is merely allegory, Dr. Mitchell demonstrates the disastrous effect this type of compromise has on the church and our society.
