Eve ~ Mother of All

This entry is part 1 of the series Out the Shadow

Eve flying copy

When we think of Eve, we think of Adam’s partner.

That leads us to the Garden of Eden, and the apple, which of course wasn’t an apple at all.

Yet how much more do we know about Eve? After the apple-that-wasn’t incident? We probably know the pair of them got thrown out of the garden. But what happened then?

Come with me on a journey as we get to know this woman who faced a life we can barely imagine.

Creative Non-fiction

Like the rest of this series, the story is written in creative non-fiction, a genre that deals with facts written in story format. It comprises 34 chapters telling the story behind the very first woman to exist on this planet.

It is not a work of fiction, but in order to bring the story of Eve alive, there are some embellishments to help you relate to the story.

At the end of each chapter, there are a few questions to help you reflect upon what you have read and how it may apply to you.

 

How to read this book:

1. Read it through as a story, pausing at the reflections as you go.

2. Use it with friends or an established Bible Study group.

The Scripture readings are very short, sometimes only a section of one verse. On a few occasions, you will even have the same reading for consecutive chapters.

The first woman, the first wife, the first mother, the first sinner . . . or was she? 

You’ll need to read the book and see what you think.

What came first? The chicken or the egg?

Who sinned first? Eve . . . or Adam?

Now you need to read the book . . .

Excerpt from Eve ~ Mother of All:

    God’s latest creation stretched, blinked her eyes and squinted at the sheet of blue hovering overhead. “That’s so beautiful!”

“What?” came a voice much deeper than hers. “You mean the sky? It’s always that color.”

The woman’s eyes focused on the face that now appeared above her. “Oh. What…? Who…?”

The figure rose to his feet and stretched out his hand. “Let me help you up. I’m Adam, the first man, created in God’s image.”

“Am I also Adam?”

“No. I’m going to call you Woman, because you were taken out of me. You are bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.”

The woman examined the man closely then looked down at her own body. There were similarities, but there were also differences. “Are we both made in God’s image? Or only you?”

“We both are,” Adam assured her. “God said it wasn’t good for me to be alone, and then He made you. He took you out of my side.”

“Whose side did you come from?”

“I didn’t.” Adam shook his head. “God made me out of the dust of the ground. Then He blew air into my lungs and I came alive.”

“And then He created me from you?”

“Not immediately. He first had a job for me to do.”

“What was that?” The woman looked puzzled. “What could be more important than creating me?”

To see how Adam answers, read the book. Available only as an ebook at this stage.

    • Thanks so much Lisa. That’s why I’m writing them in creative nonfiction. I have the freedom to expand the story where necessary without moving into fiction.

  1. This book is useful to read, reflect and think about the content in relation to our life and others, particularly in the face of adversity. It is also practical as a learning platform for group discussions as people can explore different perspectives, identify with the story and what it means to them. Thanks for posting. I shall look out for more. Andy

  2. Great blog post! Definitely tempts to read the book. I love to read creative non-fiction, often the Bible gives us too little detail. 😉 I trust it will do well!

    • Thank you Sue. Yes. That is why I write these in creative nonfiction, to help the reader picture and identify with the characters, without going into actual fiction.

  3. This is an Interesting book which will make you think and also gain insights into the days of Adam and Eve

    • Thank you for visiting, Ruth. Also for the recommendation. As you know, it was an exciting challenge to write and I certainly learned a lot in the process.
