Genesis can be difficult to understand, hard to read, and sometimes very boring (especially those lists of names). Broken Pencils will help you gain an appreciation and maybe even a love for the book of Genesis. Many questions will be answered, but many will remain since Genesis was written by Moses as a warning and a motivation to the Israelites to remember their heritage and future before entering the promised land and not as an answer book about creation. You will laugh and cry as you read Genesis from the point of view of a sinner in need of God's immeasurable grace. You will learn how our choices affect us as well as future generations. And you will discover how God interacts with a sinful humanity to accomplish his purpose to have a relationship with those he created. We are like broken pencils that God uses to write his story. Expect this book to be easy to read and understand. But don't expect it to be easy to swallow. You will be greatly challenged by the warnings as well as the motivations to walk obediently with God. And you will be overwhelmed with the grace he shows when we fail and return to him. Mark Evans is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and has over twenty years' experience as a pastor.
