In week 2 we began our series of Bible studies for the semester on the book of Genesis by looking at chapter 1. Genesis 1 can sometimes be controversial because of the debates about cosmology and origins, but when we looked at what the Bible actually says we saw that it was primarily concerned about God, humanity and our role in God's creation.
I recently posted a summary of Genesis 1 on my personal blog here . . . Deep Conviction blog post on Genesis 1.
