Synopsis

The best way to describe Adam and Eve, A Biography and Theology, is to give a very brief synopsis of each chapter. One: the authenticity and historicity of the biblical account; the method of interpretation. Two: nature and attributes of Adam and Eve’s parent, God; salvific necessity of a common human nature derived from Adam. Three: characteristics of the created human nature; image and likeness of God; reasons God had for creating mankind. Four: the four responsibilities God gave Adam to guide mankind’s interaction with his Creator, the earth, and its creatures. Five: life in the garden pre-sin; location of Eden; exercise of Adam’s responsibilities; formation of the Woman; why God tested Adam’s faith; consequences of Adam’s choice. Six: their crime, Genesis 3:1–8; actions and motives of each participant; immediate and long-term consequences. Seven: their confrontation with God, Genesis 3:9–24; their responses; an assessment of the hope innate to God’s chastisement. Eight: how mankind will live in a world changed by sin, as seen through Cain and Abel; the legacy left to Woman’s seed and the serpent’s seed. Nine: the spiritual problems faced by their descendants. The biography proper concludes with this chapter. Ten: their contribution to theology; topics include the doctrines of God, man, sin, and salvation. Six appendices discuss certain issues in more detail. A glossary provides definitions of certain terms.
