God the Creator Group Member Book includes a small-group experience for six sessions, applicable Scripture, and individual study created for personal discipleship.

"In the beginning, God?" As the Bible starts the story that we still see playing out before our eyes, we are confronted with one singular truth—God is before all things. In an overflow of love, this triune God created a universe, a world, creatures to fill it, and human beings in His image to rule over it. But a choice by our first parents plunged this good creation into the devastation of sin, and their children inherited hearts of rebellion against the Creator. God then took action to slow the spread of sin, but even more, He promised to save us from our sin through a Son, whom we know as Jesus.
