First Family by Alice Langholt is a thought provoking look at the events as they might have happened between Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. If you have ever wondered why God banished Adam and Eve, how the snake had such influence as to make Eve eat the fruit, what were Cain and Abel really like, and why did one brother kill another then you MUST read this book.
Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel were given personalities that seemed logical and real. As they learned to live outside of Eden, they had no choice but to figure out how to stay warm, how to find food, how to love each other, and how to survive. Their personalities, quirks, ideas, and feelings made them real and believable under the circumstances they were forced into. Adam truly loved Eve and tried to take care of her as best as he knew how. Eve was a good wife and loved her two boys with all of her heart. Cain was an angry young man who was jealous of his sweet and kind brother Abel. God was always present and watching over them, but sometimes it was hard for Him to leave them alone to deal with their own free will decisions.
I really enjoyed First Family and will think of Adam and Eve as real life people with personalities forevermore. I can only hope that Alice Langholt will write a book for each of the people in the Bible, bringing them to life in a perfect scenario without changing or modernizing the story. First Family should be read by everyone - believers as well as non-believers - because it is that good. First Family and Alice Langholt have quickly and easily jumped to the top of my favorite book list. I believe it will to yours too.
