From the New York Times bestselling author of Walking the
Bible and Abraham comes a revelatory journey across four
continents and 4,000 years exploring how Adam and Eve
introduced the idea of love into the world, and how they
continue to shape our deepest feelings about relationships,
family, and togetherness.
Since antiquity, one story has stood at the center of every
conversation about men and women. One couple has been the
battleground for human relationships and sexual identity.
That couple is Adam and Eve. Yet instead of celebrating
them, history has blamed them for bringing sin, deceit, and
death into the world.
In this fresh retelling of their story, New York Times
columnist and PBS host Bruce Feiler travels from the Garden
of Eden in Iraq to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, from John
Milton’s London to Mae West’s Hollywood, discovering how
Adam and Eve should be hailed as exemplars of a long-term,
healthy, resilient relationship. At a time of discord and
fear over the strength of our social fabric, Feiler shows
how history’s first couple can again be role models for
unity, forgiveness, and love.
Containing all the humor, insight, and wisdom that have
endeared Bruce Feiler to readers around the world, The First
Love Story is an unforgettable journey that restores Adam
and Eve to their rightful place as central figures in our
culture's imagination and reminds us that even our most
familiar stories still have the ability to surprise,
inspire, and guide us today.
