To truly understand God, we have to return to Eden!

Building off the concept that life’s basic lessons are taught to us early from the Robert Fulghum classic, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, author and Pastor David Kalas takes a similar approach, suggesting that the most important lessons for humanity were revealed at the beginning…in the book of Genesis.

Kalas takes us back to that first classroom—the Garden of Eden—found in the beginning of the book of beginnings. In fact, the word genesis translates to “beginning”. Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Eden leads readers through origins of important concepts in Christianity, It is in the beginning, in the Garden of Eden, that we discover fundamental insights from the origins of God’s nature, human nature, creation, temptation, sin, redemption, and more. If we truly dig in and learn these truths from the first book of the Bible, we will all be well-positioned to read and understand the rest of what follows.

A Leader Guide is also available for six-week group study.
