About the author


Dr. Robert Gullberg is originally from Park Ridge, Illinois and has practiced Internal Medicine in Racine, Wisconsin for decades. His father was a dentist and practiced for over 40 years, many of those years as a volunteer at the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, Illinois. Both of his parents- Robert C. and Adrienne, as well as brother Jim, and sisters Lin and Lauri have been believers and influenced him in the Christian faith. In high school, he received the "Good Will Award" his senior year. He attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois and graduated with a degree in Chemistry. Four years later, he graduated from the University of Illinois Medical School . As a senior in medical school, he got a glimpse of global missions when he worked in a missionary hospital in Herbertpur, India for three months working with Dr. Simon Satau. From the University of Illinois, he headed to Evanston Hospital and completed a residency in Internal Medicine. Next was a two-year Fellowship in the study of serious Infections at Northwestern University Medical Center in Chicago. After his post graduate fellowship, he arrived in Racine and married Janet Henricksen two years later. He and Janet are blessed to have four God-believing children. Dr. Bob's journey with the Lord began as a 13 year old at the Northwest Covenant Church in Mt. Prospect, Illinois. There, Pastor Engseth led him to the Lord. While attending Maine East High School, mentorship from Dave Veerman of Campus Life followed. Son City at South Park Church with Bill Hybels as Youth Pastor was part of his growing experience in the Lord. When college began, Craig Domeck took him under his wing in Campus Crusade for Christ at Northwestern. Medical school followed, and some warm fellowship with regular Bible Studies was part of the weekly spiritual diet. While in Rockford, Illinois on a three year medical stint, he attended the Evangelical Free Church. Pastor Lareau Lindquist was a trusted mentor. Dr. Dave Norquist was a special friend, and quality time was spent with the Christian Medical Society group, as well as with Eric Anderson, his travel mate to India. Post-graduate training followed at Northwestern University, and Bible studies with cross-healthcare students kept him active in God's word. Small group studies with Peter Jaggard, MD, Doug Smith, Steve Bundra MD and many others were regular. When Bob arrived in Racine, Wisconsin to start his medical practice, Christian physicians Dr. Jim Peterson and Dr. Don Cohill started mentoring him and that lasted for years. Presently, Dr. Bob is active at Grace Church in Racine Wisconsin. He tributes Pastor Jerry Worsham, Reverend John Schindler, and Pastor Joel Lindsey for having an impact on his life from the pulpit for a span of three decades. Pastor Rusty Hayes was a trusted accountability partner for years while he was at Grace Church for over six years. Dr. Bob has led Bible studies for decades on all sorts of topics from Genesis to Revelation. He has had the opportunity to do short term medical work in several remote areas of the world doing medical missions; including Honduras, Haiti, and central Africa. God is at work in every nook and cranny of this globe. He has been a practicing internist for years and has kept busy trying to take care of a full load of patients. There are occasions on a daily basis to see God work his miracles in his patients. One of his goals in life is to get know the Bible like he knows his profession of medicine (however, the more he knows in these areas, the more he realizes that he has a lot to learn)! He hopes your goal is similar; to know the heartbeat of God through the Scriptures. Encountering Grace in Genesis: A 50-Chapter Study of the Book of Genesis is a valuable addition to your library, and an excellent resource for the Bible student, or small group Bible study.

Encountering Grace in Genesis
A 50 Chapter Bible Study On Genesis
by Robert M. Gullberg View author's profile page

Overview


Studying Genesis will answer many questions concerning life. Why are we here? What are our origins? How can we understand the world around us? What are the answers to these questions? When did evil begin? Why does suffering occur? How did civilization start? Why did God pick Abraham to start his nation? How does God work through ordinary people? How does God show us his grace, that is, his "undeserved favor"? The Bible confronts these questions and hundreds of others "head on" starting in Genesis, the first book of the Bible. We learn quickly that the God of the Bible is a God of grace. He gives freely to us with unmerited favor and love. He loves us without conditions and wants the best for us. We see that he has been in the business of generating and making new his creation from the beginning of time. By his creation, I mean everything, every living and nonliving thing. It's in his nature to restore, regenerate, and transform nature and his people for the good. This is in spite of our "bend towards evil" as the Bible says in Genesis 8:21. When there is a break in the relationship, God wants and for the most part, chooses reconciliation Encountering Grace is a book about HOPE. It is a fresh look at God's redeeming grace—very evident throughout the 50 chapters of Genesis. In Genesis, we see amazing stories of God's unfailing love for us, and his desire for us to be redeemed for eternity, so that we can enjoy fellowship with him. We see his desire to give our lives great purpose. We see how he gifts us incredibly with all kinds of blessings. He is the Master orchestrator of time, and he shows us his miracles along the way. It is because of who HE IS that we have a future of hope. This will become so much clearer as you read this book. Look at all of the wonderful subjects discussed in this first book of the Bible. You will see hundreds of discussion topics listed in the "Topical Index" in an easy, alphabetical listing, excellent for individual study or small

Studying Genesis will answer many questions concerning life. Why are we here? What are our origins? How can we understand the world around us? What are the answers to these questions? When did evil begin? Why does suffering occur? How did civilization start? Why did God pick Abraham to start his nation? How does God work through ordinary people? How does God show us his grace, that is, his "undeserved favor"? The Bible confronts these questions and hundreds of others "head on" starting in Genesis, the first book of the Bible. Genesis is the first book in the Old Testament. It is the first book of the Pentateuch (Greek for "five scrolls"), penned by Moses, the famous Hebrew leader. In it, we are introduced to God, the masterful Creator. Regarding Moses, in John 5:46, Jesus Christ said, "If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me." This directly suggests to the hearer that Jesus is referring to himself as the God of the Pentateuch. The Pentateuch includes Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Jews call these same five books the Torah. Genesis has a timespan from creation to between 1700 and 1800 B.C. Early in the book of Genesis, we contemplate the mystery of the "fall" and redemption of man. We are amazed at God's regard for his creation. We learn quickly that the God of the Bible is a God of grace. He gives freely to us with unmerited favor and love. He loves us without conditions and wants the best for us. We see that he has been in the business of generating and making new his creation from the beginning of time. By his creation, I mean everything, every living and nonliving thing. It's in his nature to restore, regenerate, and transform nature and his people for the good. This is in spite of our "bend towards evil" as the Bible says in Genesis 8:21. When there is a break in the relationship, God wants and for the most part, chooses reconciliation. God has chosen to love his creation from the beginning. That is inherent in his nature. Creation and everything about it is his prize possession. Encountering Grace is a book about HOPE. It is a fresh look at God's redeeming grace—very evident throughout the 50 chapters of Genesis. Over the last 2000 years, since the physical appearance of Jesus Christ (God incarnate) on the planet earth, we've been living in the age of grace, when his church has been built, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. He continues to work amazing miracles in the hearts of people. He has sovereign control of the universe; from the bumble-bee buzzing over your head to the F4 hurricane brewing in the Caribbean, to the fate of a nation in peril. He has power over everything and the ability to regenerate all life, no matter what the circumstances. God wrote the Old and New Testament through men and women who were filled with his Spirit. Without this accurate, written record of history, the truth of God would slowly become more adulterated with the passing of each generation. If you are a believer, you believe that the Bible is inerrant in all its ways. It is our only true compass in life. All Christianity hinges on the accuracy of the Bible. Though written over a span of 1600 years by 40 different authors, we can find no discrepancy in its ageless truths. We trust that God breathed it into the hearts of its writers. "The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the Word of God stands forever" (Isaiah 40:8). Be encouraged by this book, as you will see God "love on us" throughout history. God fills us with hope continually through the pages of the Bible by restoring his people. Our God also shows us mercy and love. Though the earth we live in is filled with its share of tragedies, both on the individual and national levels, God has a plan way beyond what we can comprehend, because his perspective is eternal. He knows that on our own, we tend to mess up and turn away from him.
