Out of Eden contributes in the direction of conversations approximately studying scripture. instead of adopting conventional perspectives (creation and 'fall' or growth), this research integrates literary-critical theories and feminist scholarship to learn the Genesis narrative with regards to issues of up to date groups. The query of the way we would interact the interpretative strategy and the rhetorical energy of texts as we are living our lives 'out of Eden' is addressed.
