The Book of Eden will be coming out soon. It is based on the first eight episodes of The Eden Podcast (TheEdenPodcast.com) and covers Genesis 2:4-3:24. Here’s an endorsement!
I’m profoundly grateful for the Flemings’ work–indeed, their lifetime of work–which shines a clarifying light on some of the most profound and troublesome passages in Genesis: Are women cursed by God? Did God punish Eve and all women by increasing pain in childbirth? Did God sanction the ruling of men over women? Centuries of disvalue on women and a distortion of God’s design for marriage find their root in these passages, often interpreted through a cultural lens. I find the Flemings’ linguistic re-analysis of God’s words to Adam and Eve utterly compelling, life-changing, even. I cannot recommend this work highly enough.
