 Presented in an engaging story that parallels the Biblical book of Genesis, Six Steps from Eden explores some of the mysteries surrounding Creation, Temptation, and the Fall of mankind. 


The Biblical book of Genesis is a book of beginnings. It is the summary of how everything that is came to be. While the Bible itself is obscure in many ways, it does provide definitive answers to some of life's most important questions such as: Does God exist? Where did we come from? How did we get here? Why are we here? There are many truths we can find in the bible concerning eternity past, but these still leave a vague representation of what may have been said and how it all came to be. God, using His Word alone, created all things with the intentional purpose of revealing Himself to those He has created. This book begins with the fundamental truths of God's Word and presents what could have been said and how some things, left unrevealed, may have transpired. Woven into the fabric of what is gleaned from the Bible, an allegory of truth emerges. As portrayed in this novel approach, the truths of the bible are firmly in place. This book is simply taking a  reasonable approach to exploring some of these biblical mysteries.
