Who Told You That You Were Naked? A Refreshing Reexamination of the garden of Eden by William E. Combs unfolds the relationship that Adam and Eve had with God. He explains the events that took place in the garden as if he was there. The book starts in the garden of Eden showing us how the serpent(the devil) deceived Eve. The deception of Eve forced her to convince Adam to eat the fruit as well despite knowing that it was forbidden. The author explains that after Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they became conscious of their nakedness which was never a problem before they consumed of the forbidden fruit. After they committed this act, it then separated Adam and Eve from the intimacy with God.This lawlessness affected all humanity living on earth, every mortal living on earth became enemies with God. At the end, the author elaborates on how humanity could be reconciled to God the creator.

The thoughts, ideas and suggestions in Who Told You That You Were Naked? A Refreshing Reexamination of the garden of Eden , are supported by quotations of biblical scriptures.
This book consists of ten chapters and 223 pages. Each chapter has sub-headings which unfold the context of what the author reveals in each of the chapters. Each chapter carries an interesting topic, in each chapter the author included Study questions which I believe is for giving the reader a chance to meditate and gain more knowledge. In some of the chapters, William E. Combs shares some of his personal experiences based on his relationship with his wife. What I loved the most about this book is how he used biblical references to support the revelations he shared in the book. The stories that William E. Combs shared were too long to read and tricking in some sentences, which I did not like about the book.

I rate this book4 out of 4 because I find it to be professionally edited although I picked some inconsistencies. There’s a part where the author mentions a character called Joshua but the supporting scripture talks about Jesus. I think the author used Joshua instead of Jesus because in the Bible dictionary these names have the same meaning which means savior. But this scenario did not hinder me from enjoying the book. I will recommend this book for people of all ages especially those who seek hidden truth about the Christian faith. This book will be very helpful for those who seek to understand how God corrected the sin that took place in the garden of Eden and how to reconcile and have peace with the creator.

Now it seems that one red apple opened the man and woman's (Adam and Eve respectively) eyes to be fully aware of their nudity. Great review.

There was a mystery that was hidden in that fruit, which is the ability to see deeper things, they were actually clothed by the glory of God, eating of the fruit separated them from the divine garments

I assume this one is more a nonfiction book then. I'm not a religious person, so this one is out for me. Thank your reviewing!

That is true, because the garden of Eden carries the origin of humanity, it reveals the cause of what we see today that began there. God giving instruction and by breaking them resulted into punishment. That is why even nowadays woman give birth through pain. It all started in the garden of Eden.
