Find a Study Bible or Commentary and read the introduction to the book of Genesis. I know I get a little sweaty-palmed when I come to Genesis. All those famous long-lived people, Noah and the Ark, and six literal days of Creation. Is that really what the book is about? It seems that our faith is measured by whether we believe these events and details are literal or whether someone made them up. There is so much more to the book of Genesis than this. I hope that you will join me as I read the book and rediscover the principles behind the details.
