Synopsis

The knowledge of good and evil we inherited from Adam is the wellspring, not only of our ability to choose between right and wrong but also of our feelings of insecurity and vulnerability. When Adam and Eve gained this knowledge, they compared their individual differences and concluded their own uniqueness was no longer acceptable to their spouse.

Like them, we try to "clothe" our perceived inadequacies with things like education, wealth, a notable position or even religious piety in an attempt to feel OK. But no matter how hard we try, we can still find ourselves in situations where we feel out of place or unprepared.
In the midst of our insecurity, we need to hear the Lord ask, "Who told you that you need to be thinner, younger, prettier, more athletic or experienced?"In the Garden, the Lord clothed Adam and Eve in animal skins to cover their nakedness. Through faith in His Son Jesus Christ, God offers to replace our errant choices and perceived liabilities with His righteousness, security, and peace.
This refreshing reexamination of one tumultuous afternoon in the Garden of Eden will forever change the way you look at sin and salvation.

I am a retired Presbyterian minister, married for 48 years and have Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Fuller Theological Seminary. As a pastor, I loved to paint word pictures so the congregation could better identify with the biblical text and have carried that love into the writing of this book. The kernel for the manuscript came from a sermon. The rest was forged in the crucible of my experience.
