Publisher's Summary

"You want me to tell of how I broke the world." 

It's the year 641 since the beginning of everything, and when Eve passes away, she leaves Adam, the only man on earth who remembers everything since they walked in Eden.

When Enoch, God's 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 he's 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 life, to how he broke the world, shattered Eve's heart, and watched his family crumble.

Will Enoch uncover what led so many of Adam's children away from God? And will Adam find the redemption and forgiveness he longs for?

"Eden is in a class by itself. It's biblical fiction with an emotional depth that laid my heart bare. Not only does Brennan McPherson vividly describe the first days of human awakening; he also masterfully unmasks sin's effects through the broken relationship of Adam and Eve." (Mesu Andrews, Christy award-winning author of Isaiah's Daughter)

Fresh look at Adam and Eve

I really enjoyed the “what If” approach to applying some logical thinking about the most ancient of all Bible stories. A look at how the cursed could have played out between Adam and Eve resonated with me. The narration was also fantastic. Well worth the purchase!

Great story

I love a fictional story that is based on truth and this book does just that. Many times we hear the bible stories but we miss the little pebbles of insight. Mr.McPherson picks up those pebbles and tosses them into the story to create a very plausible situation or outcome.
I also enjoyed that it is written from Adam's point of view. Great job. I am starting Flood as soon as I submit this reveiw.

Eden

Thanks for this work of fiction about the first family. I think Christians need to think deeply about scripture, keeping it lofty, while bringing it down to the practical way it was lived out. There are many lessons to be learned from our meditation of scripture, putting ourselves in the roles of those written about and in the situations they lived out. We learn more about our
Lord that way, and about ourselves, as long as we stick with what scripture says.

Not Believable.

Zero stars would have been justified. Just to far fetched. Never like it when you stray from the facts.

Good storu

Love the story hatte the rants as they c cloud t the story, this rant is in the beginning the last rant on babel was at the end leaving me remembering his rant and not the great story, sometimes my friend you have faith that we all aren't illiterate. We are reading you for proof or history but entertain and spark imagination like you said.
