Epic of Eden, is EPIC!
5 stars By Jonathansp, Aug 12 2010
If you want to understand the Old Testament, YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!

A good understanding of the author's perspective of OT books will cut right through a lot of silly arguments that people like to have from what they have read.  This book will help immensely with that info.  It is intelligent information written intelligently but you don't have to be a genius to understand it!
