Someone who insists that the story of Adam and Eve is real history will hate this book, but I thoroughly enjoyed the analysis of why the story is still important and captivating.
An interesting read, and an erudite explanation of why a part of our body politic clings to the literal meaning of the 1,000 times translated version of an English language bible and the powerful forces that want them to. It is fascinating that this argument has been going on since the twelfth or thirteenth centuries. And amazing that a young woman who was born lame and then sent of to a convent at age 7 later wrote perhaps the first female tirade against the male patriarchy and the lie of religious power.
Adam and Eve, Fictional figures? This book must not be based on truth. God's word is.
How and why the story of Adam and Eve had such a powerful impact on Western culture. At a time when intellectual curiousity is disparaged at the highest levels, this is powerful.
