Dr. Scott Hahn -- (7 CD set)
Adam and Eve. Cain and Abel. Noah and the Ark. While most people are familiar with the colorful tales in the first book of Scripture, how many truly understand their profound significance to human destiny? Can what you don’t know about the Book of Genesis keep you from fully grasping the “whole story” of Sacred Scripture?
In his classic Bible Study, called Genesis 1-22: The Covenant as a Family Affair, renowned Catholic theologian and biblical scholar Dr. Scott Hahn expertly guides you through the first twenty-two chapters of Genesis to reveal the key interpretive principles that will empower you to understand all the other books of both the Old and New Testaments!
With this series, you’ll follow verse-by-verse commentary, explanations of key Greek and Hebrew words, background information on how key passages are used in both Catholic and Protestant theology, plus explanations of how various words and phrases are commonly misinterpreted, as well as suggestions for further reading.
