Genesis is properly describe as the book of beginnings. It may be divided into two main parts. The first part is concerned with early history of mankind (chs. 1 -11). The second part deals with the history of the specific people whom God chose as His own (chs. 12 - 50)
The author presents the material in a very simple manner. He offers ten "stories," readily discerned from the outline of the book. Some of these "stories" are brief and much condensed, but they nonetheless help to round out the content. It is quiet likely that the author of the book used sources, oral and written, for his accounts go back to the earliest history of mankind.
