Humans can tend toward obsession when it comes to the origin of things. Think of the notorious chicken and egg conundrum. Then there’s the dreaded question, “Where did I come from, Mommy?” Ideas about how it all began ping-pong around scientific and philosophical circles as well as our own conversations.
The book of Genesis is the ultimate origin story—second to Spider-Man, that is—and Shmoop’s guide breaks it down with summaries, analysis, and a look at hot-button topics.
Since 2008, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can.
We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering.
