Have you ever for a moment thought why sin seems inevitable in our daily lives? Almost everyone thinks of the same answer; because Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which God forbade them to. But if we are to see a clearer picture, a re-examination of the events of the Garden of Eden is important. This is what William Combs' Who Told You That You Were Naked, a non-fiction novel, treats.
Adam has been in the garden for some days wandering as a result of loneliness. Not long, God creates Eve and make her Adam's companion, thereby extinguishing his feeling of loneliness. The couple live a life of joy and happiness, but this did not last long when eventually, satan deceive Eve through the serpent. Hearing the fruit will make them to be like their creator entice Eve to succumb to its deceit, she give it to her husband also, and they both eat of it. Immediately after eating the fruit, they come to realize their state of nakedness. Why is the couple aware of their nakedness only after Adam ate the fruit? What is the real meaning of the nakedness portrayed in Genesis 3:7? How does the knowledge of good and evil Adam and Eve acquired affected their immediate offspring and mankind at large? Find out in this thrilling novel Who Told You That You Were Naked.
This book is a christian novel that brings to light what the knowledge of good and evil is all about and its effects on our daily activities, especially our spiritual life. It also points out True Faith as the strongest key in Christ to overcome our powerful adversary, which is sin.
The author did a great job in that the text are simple to read and understand. Besides that, the endnotes included at the end of the novel for reference purpose contributes more than half to the success of the book.
It looks like this book has already gone through a series of edition because i found no shortcomings with the spellings and grammars. I really enjoyed the novel from the start to the end.The way the author discuss different characters and occurrences impressed me, giving me a clear picture and deep knowledge of different happenings in the scriptures. Moreover, the author's step to step approach to topics in the different chapters kept me interested in the novel, curious to know what is next. I therefore recommend this text to every christian and anyone interested in christian novels. It will boost your spiritual morale.
I find no reason not to rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. The chapters are inter-related and sequential, with questions at the end of each chapters that can be discussed at Bible class.
