God's Masterwork, Volume 1: Beginnings—A Survey of Genesis-Deuteronomy

“In the beginning…”

If you’re like most people, beginnings are important times in your life—your first day of college, the time you started a new job, or the day your child was born. Beginnings matter. Understanding our beginnings—where we come from—helps us understand something of who we are.

Chuck Swindoll’s God’s Masterwork, Volume One—Beginnings: A Survey of Genesis–Deuteronomy will introduce you to the Old Testament in general and to the first five books of the Bible specifically. With one message devoted to each of these initial books, the first volume of the God’s Masterwork series will provide you with an overview of each biblical book, allow you the opportunity to gain an understanding of each book’s major themes and stories, and encourage you to trust in the God who established all things.

Deuteronomy: Remember! Remember!

A new generation was on the scene. Canaan—the Promised Land—was just beyond the border. The Hebrews were eager to invade and claim the territory. For almost 500 years, they had lived away from home, like fugitives. They longed to settle down and deepen their roots. But a very strategic matter had to be settled beforehand.
