About the Book
Eden by Brennan McPherson
Publication Date: April 1, 2020
eBook & Paperback; 332 Pages
ìYou want me to tell of how I broke the world.î
Itís the year 641 since humanity was formed in Eden, and after Eve passes away, Adam is the only man left on earth who remembers everything from the beginning of the world.
When Enoch, Godís newly appointed prophet, decides to collect the stories of the faithful from previous generations, he finds Adam in desperate need to confess the dark secrets heís held onto for too long.
Beside a slowly burning bonfire in the dead of night, Adam tells his story in searing detail. From the beginning of everything, to how he broke the world, shattered Eveís heart, and watched his family crumble.
Will Enoch uncover what led so many of Adamís children away from God? And will Adam find the redemption and forgiveness he longs for?

ìHow do you take a centuries-old story and put a new spin on it, inviting readers into an evocative world they thought they already knew? Brennan McPherson figured out the way. Flood will entertain you, yes, but also take you deep into your soul and make you ponder both the vastness and the intimacy of God.î ñ James L. Rubart, Christy Book of the Year award-winning author of The Five Times I Met Myself
Well, isn’t this a different genre for me to read! I’ve said it multiple times, but part of my goal for this year was to try out new genres. And this is probably one genre that I have never checked out before! But I’m really happy this was my first introduction, because Eden was so amazing!
Now, I may not have the BEST knowledge of the Bible but the tale of Adam and Eve is pretty memorable. I really liked how this book told the story from the perspective of Adam and gave the story a human centered basis. If that makes any sense. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it took it from a zoomed out story to a more person focused one. It helps make the story seem more relatable.
I also have to point out that the author took a lot of liberties with the story. While this didn’t bother me in the slightest (it probably helped me like it more), some people may not be greatly appreciative of all of the changes. So, take this story as a story and not as a restating of the original story.
