This first volume of the Torah for Nations series is a detailed and intimate presentation of the story of Adam and Eve. While remaining true to the literal text of the Bible, it enhances the Biblical narrative by expanding the conversations between G-d, Adam, Eve, and the serpent. These enhanced conversations, while imaginative, remain true to ancient Jewish interpretation and weave a comprehensive understanding of traditional Jewish philosophy and theology within the story line. Additionally, each conversation is supported by essays that prepare the reader to better appreciate the subtleties and lessons inherent in the conversations. Questions follow each chapter to stimulate discussion and further study. An introductory section presents key concepts of traditional Jewish belief such as creation, the age of the universe, the purpose of existence, choseness, and human limitations. Additionally, footnotes are incorporated in lieu of a glossary of Hebrew terms, making the text more user friendly and accessible. As mentioned, this is intended as the first volume of a series that will span the entire Old Testament and should take five to seven plus years to complete.
