This volume deals with the past, present, and future. It speaks of why God created the world to begin with, and Man's role in that ongoing Creation. It speaks of the Presence of God in the world and Man's ability to attract or repel the Shechinah. Most importantly, it speaks of the relationship between Man and God. Beginnings explains the overarching theme of the book of Bereishis, the whole Torah, and for that matter, all of life.
