Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: “The question of where we come from and where we are going is one of the elementary challenges of life. Perhaps it is the question of life. Only when we get an answer to it do we learn who we are.” So begins How the World Began, a book that asks the most fundamental of all questions: who are we? And what did God intend us to be? Despite – perhaps even because of – the immense technological advances of our time, and the frightful consequences for the human race of the misuse of that power, humanity is brought face-to-face time and again with the essential problem that has haunted us since the beginning of time: the mystery of good and evil. Helmut Thielicke’s work in these sermons on the first eleven chapters of Genesis is thought-provoking and exceptionally powerful.
