The first book of the Bible is actually a compilation of the stories of 8 men and their Creator. I have presented them here in narrative form, as if these eight men had written in the first person. While this book remains true to the Biblical account, I have allowed these men to make personal comments from time to time as appropriate. To add depth to their stories, I have also included some extra-Biblical information gleaned from various commentaries and historical accounts, but I have not allowed this information to distract us from the truth that these men actually lived and their stories are true. It’s my prayer that reading this book will enhance your understanding of God’s first word to man.
