Item description for From Eden to Babel: An Adventure in Bible Study by Richard D. Nelson...

Richard Nelson has written an interpretive guide to the most fascinating stories from Genesis 2-11: Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Cain's descendants, the flood, Noah and his sons, and the Tower of Babel. Its purpose is to helps ordinary people of faith recapture the power of the familiar stories from the first chapters of Genesis, reading the scriptures for themselves and applying the insights to their own lives. It introduces and demonstrates an easily accessible, step-by-step interpretive method that lets readers discover, uncover, and recover meaning in these stories. Nelson encourages biblical readers to look beyond conventional and expected meanings to explore the potential texts have to address contemporary issues and situations that people care about today. Through his interpretive method, Nelson nurtures lay Christians to become self-reliant readers who can discover effective and dynamic meaning in Genesis and other stories from the Bible.
