Fallen: A Biblical Story of Good and Evil (by Melinda Viergever Inman) … unfortunately, a disappointing experience

This book had so much promise! I was intrigued by the synopsis of the book. However, it was really a cheesy presentation of the story of Adam and Eve’s fall from grace. While it was interesting to consider how Adam and Eve handled everything that was a new experience for them…learning to walk, how and why to eat and drink, what things meant, how to deal with the challenges after their fall…a lot of the details ended up being handled in a quirky and silly way.

I was enthralled with the thought of celebrating with God on a daily basis in the Garden of Eden. And the book did have some good “deep” thoughts about God’s love for us and how even though we sin, he is still there…waiting for us to return to Him. But, unf0rtunately, that’s about the only really positive thing I can say about the book.

Needless to say, I am disappointed.
