Lush, colorful flowers. Fresh, cool streams and lakes.An abundance of creatures, from gentle bears to tiny birds. Enter the Garden of Eden in this account of God's culminating creation, Adam. As Adam draws his first breath, we are endowed with a renewed awareness of God's love and with appreciation for the magnificence of the world in which he has placed us. As Adam is filled with joy and peace, in pure relationship with God, our sense of wonder is reinvigorated-or perhaps awakened for the first time.
In this expansion of the Genesis story, author Ron Middleton brings to life the very human struggles of Adam and Eve. Loneliness, curiosity, free will, temptation, the longing for connection and family-all are part of our human experience, and we have the choice to respond recklessly or wisely. Through descriptive language and storytelling, we become privy to Eve's dilemma as she tries to sort out the conflicting messages from the serpent, from God, and from her beloved Adam. Like us, she finds that the will of God can be obscured by temptation disguised as confusion.
This is a story about what was and what could have been, but it does not end there. It is also a love story-between God and Adam, Adam and Eve, and ultimately, God and his people. As we gain more insight into what happened in the Garden, our understanding of God's love for us is deepened.Über den Autor:
