Overview

One would think that with the long and consistent interpretive history of the account of the Fall there would be no questions left to ask about the events that took place at the beginning. Yet questions continue to be asked by intelligent students of the Bible. If the serpent was possessed, why was he punished? How could an unfallen woman have wicked motivations for disobeying God? How could Adam eat the fruit if, as the Scriptures say, he was not deceived? These and other questions are answered in The Beginning. What is surprising about this book is that it challenges the traditional view of the fall yet it is written by a conservative evangelical with a high view of Scripture who widely quotes from Scripture and the reformers. The book also offers a comforting theological explanation of why infants that die in their infancy go to heaven.
