The editors have performed a great service in making widely available a documentary history of the interpretation of the Eve and Adam story." ―Publishers Weekly

No other text has affected women in the western world as much as the story of Eve and Adam. This remarkable anthology surveys more than 2,000 years of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim commentary and debate on the biblical story that continues to raise fundamental questions about what it means to be a man or to be a woman. The selections range widely from early postbiblical interpretations in the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha to the Qur’an, from Thomas Aquinas to medieval Jewish commentaries, from Christian texts to 19th-century antebellum slavery writings, and on to pieces written especially for this volume.

I think this book is indispensable for anyone who wants to read about how the Biblical story of Adam and Eve has been handed down and interpreted, from the earliest religious writing to the 20th century. The book contains an anthology of thought, and criticism about the story, including rabbinical writings and more modern exegeses. The selections are just that and not complete, but it gives you a great place to start if you want to read more. My favorite part of this is the dissection of the text from Genesis itself. I don't read Hebrew, but the discussion in here about what words were used, and what they mean, really helped me understand where it might be coming from.

When I first bought this book from Amazon, there were not any reviews posted about it and I bought it on a gamble hoping that it would have what I needed. That gamble was beyond worth it!

I have been working on a book and one of the subjects that I was trying to tackle was to defend Eve against the historical demonizing of her that has gone on over the millenia. I knew with certainty that various theologians from the early centuries of the Church, such as Tertullian, had perpetuated this concept, but I needed more sources to expand my study. This book provided that and more.

This book is a collection of Biblical sources, extra-Biblical sources (such as Jubilees), collections of Jewish Midrash, the Talmud, other Jewish writers during the advent of Christianity, early Christian theologians (such as Tertulian, John Chrysostom, and Augustine), Medieval Jewish and Christian writings (such as Saint Thomas Aquinas), Islamic writings, Protestant Reformation/Revolt era writings (i.e. Martin Luther and John Calvin), and many more up to the present. The book collects translations of these many texts as well as commentaries on the context of the writings and their writers. As a historian, these primary sources are a pivotal resource! Moreover, collected together as they are in one volume, this saves the researcher a lot of time searching for them.

But now that I have finally had the chance to write a review about this book, I have found that there are others who have already beaten me to the punch on being the first to review this book. In regards to what one reviewer said about this book being boring, if you are a historian who is enthralled with this subject, this book is far from boring! (If you are not a historian, then you might be bored because this book is collected together in a scholastic format that seems to be primarily aimed at historians.) In addition, there was another reviewer who said that he/she wished that there were more heretical writings to compliment the orthodox ones. In regards to that I find a few problems with that idea: (1) These are for the most part orthodox writings in the nature of their content and if one wants to do a thorough study from an orthodox viewpoint, it is better to limit the collection to writings that are primarily orthodox in their content; (2) This volume is so dense with material that to also include an extensive collection of heretical materials would require a second volume of material; (3) Since this book focuses on the many (and even conflicting) orthodox traditions of Adam and Eve, heretical writings are not needed for study in this context because that their nature of being heretical did not have influence on the orthodox mindset of the times; (4) If someone wants to read the heretical writings about this subject (such as from the Gnostics, the Arians, the Modalists, etc.), then one should not limit one's self to studying only one book for reference. In fact, as a resource for my own research, this is only one book of many that I have used to study; it is a VERY important book used in my research, but it is only one of many. Thus, in defense of the editors in the context of what the other reviewer mentioned about the desire for there also being an inclusion of heretical writings, I politely suggest to that reviewer and to anyone else that if they want to study on the heretical perspective of this subject that you find a work of an identical nature that focuses just on that.

In summation, this is a wonderful book for reference, whether you are religious or not. If you are looking for a collection of primary sources about Adam and Eve written by (though translated from) the original writers, this book is for you.

I had to read this book for a class, and I actually enjoyed reading it! It analyzes various questions that pertain to us even today such as: how do and perhaps, how should, men and women relate to each other (and how they were related before). It gave various examples of how the same story in Genesis was interpreted by people during different eras so drastically distinct. Admittedly, I didn't read the whole book, but maybe when I have more time, I actually will finish it.
So, if you want to know more about how society interpreted sacred texts to justify their beliefs(specifically about gender/race), it does an awesome job of explaining that.

Good product !!! reasonable for used price !!!

Eve & Adam: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Readings on Genesis and Gender by Linda S. Schearing (Editor), Valarie H. Ziegler (Editor), Kristen E. Kvam (Editor) is, indeed, a collection of proses and commentaries on Genesis and Gender. So if you are looking for a relaxing yet informative book about Adam and Eve (sorry! "Eve and Adam") to read on the beach or while visiting your in-laws, do not consider this book.

This is a serious, academic (to the point of near boredom!) book that demonstrates "the remarkable hold the story of Eve and Adam has on the Western imagination".

So why four stars? I gave four stars because the book did not meet my objective-a relaxing read on Adam and Eve. Why not three star then? I did not give a three star rating because the book provided some serious information about the sad nature of gender discrimination.

Recommended as a good reference.

Good quality.

Great transaction, speedy shipping, & the book is in excellent condition. I would buy from this seller again.
Magnificant book! The authors have done a tremendous job collecting together a broad but representative array of readings about Eve from three religious traditions. Anyone doing research on the Adam and Eve story, or anyone wanting the background to the naming and valuation of women which has developed from the Adam and Eve story must get this book! Helpful summaries move the reader through the plethora of material, noting important changes and developments in thinking through the centuries. A great text for women's studies, feminist theologies and literary studies.
