Genesis covers some of the most famous stories of all time, including the garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark and Cain and Abel. Using the emergence of the people of Israel as a starting point, it tells the story of the beginning of the world as ancient writers understood it. The text is introduced by Steven Rose.
