Eve and the Choice Made in Eden by Beverly Campbell

Is the way that women evaluate their own worth affected still by the biblical story of Mother Eve? Author Beverly Campbell suggests, “In much of the literature and in most of the histories referring to women there is an undercurrent of apology, as though there is something not quite all right about being a woman. In looking for the source of this unease, I came to recognize that it could be traced to accounts of the Creation and to the ever-prevalent and negative characterizations of Eve.”

She writes of three levels from which the story of Eden must be viewed: as historical fact, as a series of symbols and metaphors, and as a place for a beginning our own search for spiritual understanding and relevance in life. This compelling book may change forever your perception of our first parents and the choice they made.

Eve and the Choice Made in Eden

Does the story of the Creation have anything to do with our liberty and freedom? We have all read the Creation story in Genesis and the Pearl of Great Price more times than we can probably count, but has the depth and reality of the story ever really came alive? For thousands of years, the Creation narrative has been told and retold in largely the same manner. From a the orthodox Christian perspective 1 God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden, 2 God caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam and, in his sleep, took from him a rib and made Eve, 3 Eve was then tricked into eating of the forbidden fruit by the serpent causing original sin, and 4 Adam and Eve were both kicked out of the Garden of Eden as they were cursed to work by the sweat of their brow for their food. Eve received a type of double consequence, as she would toil in pain during childbirth.

This book was definitely groundbreaking in its time. It is the preeminent work on Eve and it basically dissects each scripture about her.

I thought the book was good until the last chapter. I agree that women are blessed with heaven sent gifts of concern mercy caring for other decisions made with others concerned. The last chapters description of men was inconsiderate stereotyping in a way that degraded men. Made me feel bad. We are not all black white, wrong right going on trips without considering other people family members. As an example.
