"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

Beginnings are important. If we want to understand the Bible as a whole, it is vital to understand what it teaches about creation.

W. Robert Godfrey has written this study with thoughtful Christians in mind. He carefully examines the text, knowing that the Bible is a covenantal record that is always focused on God and his relationship to his people.


"W. Robert Godfrey understands how to read Scripture texts. In the midst of present confusion regarding Genesis 1, he writes with a clear and proper focus. Genesis 1, according to him, is covenantal and literary and it is for us! I will be giving out many copies of this book."

Bryan D. Estelle

"Godfrey gives us an interpretation of Genesis 1 that is clear, concise, and compelling. In this wonderful book he teaches us the practical theology contained in Genesis 1, as well as sound principles for interpreting the rest of Scripture. I heartily recommend God's Pattern for Creation."

Mark Futato
