by Anonymous: Let's be honest and admit that the 'apple story' thrives only because it is easy to repeat to children. So... what if everything you were taught about the Garden of Eden was wrong? And what if the events of Eden shaped not only human destiny, but shaped human character? And what if the rest of the Bible is a record of God's efforts to fix what went wrong way back then? If you're a Christian (or a Jew), you need to read this book.
