David Angus adapts the story of Adam and Eve and Kerry Shale, with a stunning sense of gravitas, recounts the creation myth of mankind: God created Adam, and formed Eve from Adam's rib. He then created the Garden of Eden for them to live in, including the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Tempted by a serpent, Eve tastes the fruit, leading to her and Adam's expulsion from Eden. This tale of Original Sin is a cornerstone belief in the Christian faith, and Shale gives it due importance with his stately performance.
This is a story from the Moses and Other Stories from the Old Testament collection.
Here are the main stories from The Old Testament: Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah's Ark, Abraham and Isaac, Moses, The Ten Commandments, David and Goliath, Jonah and the Whale, Daniel and the Lion's Den, and more. In these days where religion plays a diminishing role, it is important that we know the stories of The Bible not least because they appear repeatedly in art, literature, drama, music, and even in films and computer games!
David Angus' informal text especially written for this recording is brought to life by the friendly story-telling talents of Kerry Shale.
