Overview

Gods Womb: The Garden of Eden, Innocence and Beyond by Martin Herbst

God's Womb thoughtfully presents a new perspective of the world through a unique prism. The story of the Garden of Eden found in the book of Genesis is reinterpreted, and a compelling argument is offered, for the necessity of Adam and Eve to have matured from a fetus-like existence into full-fledged human beings, stripped of innocence, yet infused with free will. The Christian and Islamic perspectives on both the Garden of Eden and the human capacity for free will are also included, with an emphasis on how these attitudes can be compared and contrasted with that of their mother religion, Judaism. A work of contemporary religious theology results, serving as a novel vision that helps to clarify both the meaning and purpose of the existence of human life.
