Guest Post from Joanna May Chee

True or False? Eve spent time with God before meeting Adam.

True or False? Eve wasn’t called Eve until after the Fall.

Does the Bible even say?

Until recently, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you, even though I’ve been a Christian many years, and thought I knew the Bible story of Eve really well!

It was during hot, sticky, jet-lagged nights, about four years ago, on holiday overseas, that God started giving me new and wonderful insight into Eve’s life. Words literally started pouring through my head: the story of Eve, but not as I’d heard it before!

I’d always had negative connotations of Eve – the first woman to be tempted, the first to sin. But the story God revealed to me during my sleepless nights was one of preciousness and beauty. It was the story of Father and daughter, of God’s incredible love for Eve, and His equally wondrous love for me.

As Eve’s story unfolded over several nights, I wrote it down; and God gave me a book I did not ask for (but am forever grateful for): Forever Loved: Eve’s Story.

These new insights into Eve’s story have been life-changing. God has brought me deeper into His love than I could ever have imagined. (In the introduction of ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’ I share something of the deep hurt and insecurity I experienced growing up – including the time I got into BIG trouble with my teacher – my cry to know God as Father, and how God’s love has brought healing and freedom.)

It’s my prayer that ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’ touches the lives of women around the world, that women may come into deeper experience of God as Father, and know just how beautiful and precious they are to Him.

So, back to the True/False questions at the beginning of this post! What do you think?

I’d love to share with you what I’ve discovered by giving you a free copy of a devotional I’ve written called ‘Treasures Hidden in the Story of Eve’.

This devotional explores some of the amazing truths God’s shown me about Eve, and the wonderful implications for us as women today (and includes extracts from ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’). Download the devotional for free here.

I pray God touches you as deeply as He has me, as you explore the Bible story of Eve afresh. May you encounter the love of Father God as never before.

Book Review by Bree Herron

A unique interpretation of a woman we all know. Even those that are not religious or have not read the bible, know who Eve is. The first woman, the woman that was tempted by a serpent and fruit. God created Eve, we know this, from Adam. But what we are to learn is Eve’s story and her fascinating account that is woven with details from the Bible and this delightful author’s engaging storytelling.

Characters

Not only do we meet Eve but also we get a chance to hear the author’s own story and connection to this Biblical character. I really enjoyed Eve in this book and the moment we started her story  I was hooked. I thought it was neat to see how the author shared a small detail from her life weaving into this tale and how it interconnected.

Cover

This book’s cover is one that I positively adore. It is super pretty and I am a huge fan of purple. It called to me from the water painting style of the floral prints.

Synoptic

I loved this book and the story behind it. It was fun to read, I felt as though I was learning details that I never took away from the Bible. Though it is a story woven with the author’s opinion, she did a nice job of finding the truth to keep with Eve. It is a book I would recommend and encourage you to read.
