Genesis is one of the most attacked books of the Bible. Everyone is faced with the three big questions of life: 1) Where did I come from? 2) What is my purpose in life? 3) What will happen when I die? The answer they provide for the first question will form the foundation for answering the next two. The Bible has a meta-narrative, or overarching story, which gives context and meaning to each event that is recorded and answers the three big life questions. The meta-narrative anticipates a Restoration at the end of time.
