Fallen: A Biblical Story of Good and Evil by Melinda Viergever Inman

Love takes action. The Creator God establishes the cosmos and shapes a man. Adam rises from the dust. Envious, the powerful angel Lucifer despises him. Oblivious to the threat, Adam is captivated by his strong, intuitive wife Eve. In the Garden of Eden, they enjoy abundant food, gorgeous vistas, and intriguing challenges, including their budding love and passion. They have it all!

But Lucifer’s deceptive brilliance tricks them into disobeying God. They eat the one forbidden fruit. Their innocence is shattered. Their unity with one another and with God is destroyed. Death will follow. Lucifer’s jealousy threatens mankind’s tenuous beginning. But God is merciful. What astonishing promise does He make? How will Adam and Eve survive – broken, shattered, and separated from God?

This book had so much promise! I was intrigued by the synopsis of the book. However, it was really a cheesy presentation of the story of Adam and Eve's fall from grace. While it was interesting to consider how Adam and Eve handled everything that was a new experience for them...learning to walk, how and why to eat and drink, what things meant, how to deal with the challenges after their fall...a lot of the details ended up being handled in a quirky and silly way. I was enthralled with the thought of celebrating with God on a daily basis in the Garden of Eden. And the book did have some good "deep" thoughts about God's love for us and how even though we sin, he is still there...waiting for us to return to Him. But, unf0rtunately, that's about the only really positive thing I can say about the book. Needless to say, I am disappointed.

Impressive book by an awesome writer. She has captured the beauty and the danger in Eden, the glory of walking with God daily, and the horror of realizing you just killed your relationship with God. This is one you will grow from. This is a short review, I know--but I don't know what else to say but "READ IT!"

It was amazing to me how God used FALLEN to convict me of my own fallen nature. While reading FALLEN, I identified with Adam and Eve and their sinfulness! I felt many times that I needed to stop and ask God to forgive me of my sin of pride, the pride that seems to motivate me until God’s Spirit begins to have His way. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for doing the work in me that was needed through FALLEN! It was obvious that God’s Spirit was leading Melinda Viergever Inman as she wrote this book and that God was looking into my soul and saying exactly what I needed to hear as I read it. I feel that this is a book that I can give away, knowing that God will speak to others as He did to me, using it to honor and glorify Jesus, the One who eventually came to bring us back to God after Adam and Eve’s fall had taken us away.

Fallen is a poignant love story of the first two humans, woven alongside the glorious story of love and hope that is offered to all humans by their Creator. The perfection of creation in the Garden of Eden is starkly contrasted with the world outside the Garden after the fall. The author took a story that was very familiar to me, and added new depth and meaning, allowing me to understand my own fallen and sinful nature more clearly. Also highlighted is the immense love God has for us, and the lengths to which He is prepared to go to show us His love.

I loved this book. There were so many things about it that made me go, “ Of course! That makes sense with everything being brand new,” or, “Wow!I never thought of it like that before!” It challenged my own responses to God's care of me and the guidelines He gives to protect me and make me more like Him. Do I run to Him alone or do I seek to solve things in my own wisdom or out of a heart of fear and distrust? It also reassured me of His perfect plan in light of my broken nature. I cannot surprise Him or screw up too much for Him to withhold His grace, mercy, and love from me. Adam and Eve looked forward in hope for the promise as I look back on God's promise kept. Your perspective will be blown, your heart will be challenged, and your hope in God's faithfulness to pursue relationship with lost sinners will grow immensely. I cannot wait to share it with friends and family!
