"[Here is] ?the ?Genesis for our generation and beyond."—Robert Fagles Genesis begins with the making of heaven and earth and all life, and ends with the image of a mummy—Joseph's—in a coffin. In between come many of the primal stories in Western culture: Adam and Eve's expulsion from the garden of Eden, Cain's murder of Abel, Noah and the Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham's binding of Isaac, the covenant of God and Abraham, Isaac's blessing of Jacob in place of Esau, the saga of Joseph and his brothers. In Robert Alter's brilliant translation, these stories cohere in a powerful narrative of the tortuous relations between fathers and sons, husbands and wives, eldest and younger brothers, God and his chosen people, the people of Israel and their neighbors. Alter's translation honors the meanings and literary strategies of the ancient Hebrew and conveys them in fluent English prose. It recovers a Genesis with the continuity of theme and motif of a wholly conceived and fully realized book. His insightful, fully informed commentary illuminates the book in all its dimensions.

Twelve of the most inspiring sermons, which the heavenly Father through His begotten Son (the Comforter) and His Holy Spirit, is about to bring a change in people lives. Two powerful testimonies, one of which should bring hope and comfort to all that are plagued with cancer, the next will enlighten parents that by faith their children can be healed of asthma. The other Comforter; is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, even the Holy Ghost; He reveals the scriptures and gives a light through Jesus Christ; that light is to be put on a candle stick that all may see to go in and out (which suggest that when the true word of God is understood, it is to be taught to others that they too may understand and do the Father's will). The Greatest Religious Question; reveals three heavens in the Genesis, unnoted by many, more so, Jesus spoke of two saves; they amongst other (unnoticed and misunderstood) sayings are brought to light. This book shows that the KJV Bible is more reliable, for example; 1John 5:7 and Matthew 19:9 (fornication) are explained, and should not have been taken out of other Bibles. It also shows that the Father brought His Son to earth that He go to the Jews only, without riches, not even a pillow; Jesus gives an itinerary to take Abraham's bosom along with converted Jews and Gentiles to the Father's kingdom, also Judas who killed himself will be taken; the Father Himself will condemn Judas.
