The True Account of Adam & Eve Review
The True Account of Adam & Eve
Illustrated by Bill Looney
Published by Master Books
"Studying God's Word is the only way we will know the truth about the history of the universe and mankind".
As a young child, seeking for truth in a non christian home, I found myself in a church that taught the stories of the Bible were just that, stories. That they were fictionalized accounts of things for God to 'teach us with'. I was taught Adam and Eve were just a story, and this being taught in a protestant religion.
I have since been saved by grace and have learned much from the truth of God's word. I find Christians today still squabble over the truth of the Bible. Indicating that God could not in his almighty being, actually create the earth in 6 days. Why not??
There continues to be churchs teaching as I learned as a child, that the Biblical accounts were just stories.
Ken Ham and Bill Looney saught to write this book, to share with children and adults alike, the Biblical truth of the reality of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman God created.
Beautiful illustrations show Adam being formed out of the dust of the earth, naming the animals including dinosaurs, and Eve being formed from Adam's rib.
The story doesn't end with just the telling of Adam and Eve, but goes on to show how we are decendants of Adam and are then sinners as he was. The story continues with the redemption power of Jesus, God's son. Explaining how Jesus is the only one who could take our place on the cross, allowing us fellowship with the Father in heaven again, and eternity in heaven with him if we accept Jesus as our savior.
The book also sticks with the new earth theory of recording history, that Adam and Eve lived approx 6000 year ago, not millions as the world likes to say. Adam was mentioned in the Bible in 9 different books, showing that he was indeed a real man in history.
This book showcases much of what I saw at The Creation Museum in Northern KY. Many of the facts and diagrams are in this book, a minature version of a great place to share with others. The illustrations are outstanding, the focus on the Bible is fantastic! This book will be a treasure to our family for generations to come.
