Did Adam and Eve Really Exist? Who They Were and Why You Should Care
By C. John Collins
Are Adam and Eve a myth, or did they really live? Addressing both biblical and extrabiblical texts, Collins explores theological and scientific questions as he analyzes the storyline in Genesis. His masterful study will show that not only did Adam and Eve exist, but they are central to God’s plan of redemption–and our modern experience. 192 pages, softcover from Crossway.
I’ve completed a CT Bible study to accompany an article on this vital topic by Dick Ostling in next month’s Christianity Today, so this book is of special interest to me. I can’t wait to read it.
