We live in a Genesis Three World.
Even a quick look around reveals that things in this world are not as they should be. Violence, including war and mass shootings and self-inflicted harm such as suicide, occurs more than regularly. In the words of Paul, We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time (Rom. 8:22). That groaning began in the days of Genesis chapter three.
Genesis chapter two assures the reader that all that God created “was very good”. Due to the events recorded in Genesis chapter three, “was” is a key word. Yet not all hope is lost. In fact, another chapter three found in the Bible provides the answer to the problem of the brokenness of our world. The purpose of this book is to equip the reader with biblical and biblically-based tools for navigating through our Genesis Three World.
