The Power and the Promise: Studies for Lent and Other Times by Philip Jensen and published by Aquila Press.
The opening chapters of the Bible are a majestic introduction to God, his word, and the world as we know it. The breathtaking account of the creation of the world has amazed, moved and convicted countless readers. In these chapters we also see the heartbreaking history that stemmed from humanity’s first rejection of its Creator, and the unmatchable hope offered in God’s covenants. In these 40 daily devotions, the former Archbishop of Sydney Peter Jensen stands beside his readers, marvelling at the many facets of the rich landscape that is Genesis 1–15. Questions for group discussion or personal reflection are also included.
