Adam and Eve and Us

Genesis 2-3 tells the story of a God, a man, a woman, a snake, and a prohibition. Over time, this simple origin myth becomes a driving force behind the West’s view of male/female relationships, human sinfulness, humanity’s control over nature, sexuality, and the ceaseless desire to regain Paradise lost. This talk examines how the story of Adam and Eve deeply affects (infects?) Western culture and shapes the way we think about ourselves.
