Series Spotlight: The Genesis Trilogy

30 Apr

The Heavens Before  — Marginalized by society and mistreated by her own family, Annah befriends a young man she’s never seen before. Shem is captivated by Annah’s courage, and he risks everything to help her gain her freedom. Trusting in the Most High, Annah marries Shem and joins her strange new family in their solitary faith that will ultimately separate them from an ancient world of amazing beauty and appalling violence–a world fast approaching the unimaginable catastrophe of the Great Flood. Out of this chaos, only eight people will survive. Their world is our world. Their future is our own.

Chapter 1

KACY BARNETT-GRAMCKOW is a freelance writer. She is the author of the Genesis Trilogy (The Heavens Before, He Who Lifts the Skies and A Crown in the Stars). Kacy has also written dozens of devotionals which have been published in a number of books and web sites, including the best-seller A Moment a Day and the Women’s Devotional Bible. She and her husband of over twenty years make their home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with their two sons.

My Impressions:

I received the Genesis Trilogy by Kacy Barnett-Gramckow from my husband several years ago  (thank you Amazon wish lists!)   What a great present it was.  I devoured these books in a matter of days and have recommended them to all my friends.  I was impressed by the images of the pre-flood world presented in the first book.  Was that how it really was?  — pink skies, abundant vegetation, huge, gray plant eaters (dinosaurs?) and of course the violent and degrading society of the days of Noah.  Barnett-Gramckow did her homework with this series.  It had me re-reading the book of Genesis, checking her fictional account against the Biblical record.  Other fascinating facts are presented as well — the Tower of Babel, the confusion of the languages, the migration of the people.  I Highly Recommend this series.

Other books in the trilogy:

He Who Lifts the Skiesimagery creates a ‘you are there’ immersion in the story of the post-Flood world. Kacy Barnett-Gramckow fans raved about her extraordinary job of moving the Flood off the Sunday School flannel graph board and into life in The Heavens Before. Now, she continues to flesh out the Bible’s brief account of the rise of Nimrod and the Babel rebellion with scintillating characters and a wealth of imaginative detail.

A Crown in the Stars — A Crown in the Stars follows the growing rebellion of mankind as the tribes of the earth continue building the great tower begun by Nimr-Rada (commonly known as Nimrod). After the Most High Himself thwarts their plans by confounding human speech, He comforts His followers by revealing to them the identity of Avram, father of the tribe that will bring forth their savior, the Promised One.
