Eric Barreto: In the Beginning and In the End

The Rev. Dr. Eric Barreto (CBF)

Dr. Eric Barreto says Genesis chapters 1 and 2 are not a blueprint for the world or a play-by-play of the dawning of creation. Nor are they simply an ancient fairy tale we can dismiss. They’re not about us--they are first and foremost about God.
