The First Love Story: Adam, Eve, and Us, by Bruce Feiler
A journey across time and space to explore the power of the Adam and Eve story to shape our deepest notions of love, duty, morality and family.
The story of Adam and Eve has stood at the centre of every conversation about men and women in Western civilization for the last 3,000 years. It has been both a source of division between the sexes and a model for how relationships can survive temptation, transgression, loss, and pain.
The equality (or inequality) of the sexes, the importance of connection, the nature of love, good and evil, the first people in throes of the first passion, Eden, the snake, the temptation, sin and the Fall, animal skins in exile, Cain and Abel, murder...this book examines each particular. - New York Times
An eye-opening look at one of the most famous stories of all time. - Reza Aslan
