In The Beginning : A New Interpretation of Genesis
by Armstrong, Karen

The foundation stone of Jewish and Christian scriptures, the power of the "Book of Genesis" lies in its stories - "Creation", "the Fall", "Cain and Abel", "Noah", "Abraham", "Jacob" and "Joseph". These ancient tales illuminate some of our most enduring and profound problems: cowardice, the struggle with evil, the difficulty of facing past mistakes, achieving a true understanding of our innermost selves. Karen Armstrong traces the themes and meanings of these stories, examining what they can still tell us about the human quest for meaning.
