About This Item

Chantilly, Virginia: Teaching Company, 2006. DVD. Twenty-four 30-minute lectures on four As New DVDs in a Fine original case along with an As New 159-page paperback Course Guidebook. No shrink-wrap, otherwise As New. Pristine inside and out. Not from a library. Suitable for gifting.

These 24 fascinating lectures will give you a new appreciation of one of the most remarkable literary compositions from the ancient world, the book with which Jews begin the Torah and Christians begin the Bible. You will learn why the book of Genesis has not one but two creation stories and what hints the book's many contradictions offer about its authorship.
