In the Beginning by Monica Migliorino Miller (author of Abandoned) takes you through a unique reading of the first three chapters of Genesis, unfolding the richness of the divinely revealed creation story and what it has to say about God, the world, and the destiny of mankind.

Those first three chapters of Genesis aren’t a literal play-by-play of how the universe came to be; neither are they mere mythical poetry or a purely symbolic re-imagining of scientific events beyond the comprehension of “primitive” peoples. Rather, as Miller shows, they are the revelation of cosmic truths that obliterate the prevailing pagan mindset. From the first ray of light to the aftermath of the Fall, God is telling the world that 
things will be different now.

This radical new mindset that God announces in Genesis shows us a fresh and optimistic way of thinking about nature, the body, the spirit, sex and procreation, death, and what comes after death. 
In the Beginning will enrich your understanding of these lessons. It will also show you how to deploy them as an antidote to those modern errors that try to make us forget that God created the world . . . and it is Good.
