I’ve read the Bible many times before trying to write a book about it. My decision for writing such a book comes from the many questions that jump out looking for answers that I just don’t have.
In the Bible we find in Genesis, chapter 3 vs. 20 the name Eve. The verse references the name that Adam gave to his wife and the reason for Adam’s selection of that name.

Questions to consider and ignored by pastors in their teaching from the scriptures. Questions present for hundreds, thousands of years and the real question, does God wish us to know from the knowledge we now have and wasn’t present in the beginning of time?
