Genesis: Where It All Began
Genesis is the first book of both the Jewish and the Christian Bibles. It is a book that resonates throughout the remainder of both of these Bibles. Its stories and themes also have a prominent place in the Muslim sacred text, the Qu'ran. Rev. Phifer will describe how and why the book was written, by whom, and some of the meanings that have continued to play important roles in western civilization. The course is primarily lecture, with ample opportunity for participants to ask questions and offer their own insights. Reading all or part of Genesis before the class would be helpful. Ken Phifer is the senior minister emeritus of the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor, where he served for 25 years. He is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Chicago Divinity School. He is the author of three books, several dozen articles, and has taught OLLI courses for many years.
