You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered!
Have you ever imagined yourself in Eve’s place. Eve, the first woman created by God and the first woman ever to sin?
Joanna May Chee writes of Eve in her new book: Forever Loved: Eve’s Story (Affiliate link). She narrates the story in first person in an intimate retelling of the life of Eve from her creation to her joy in paradise with “Papa.”
The incredible true story will envelop you in warmth as you witness Eve’s first days on earth discovering the wonder of the Garden of Eden; then your heart will pound as you walk with Eve in her fall and disgrace only to find hope in the promise of redemption in Christ.
Eve’s story, raw and true, follows in great detail the story of Genesis. The only difference is we witness the events as they unfolded through the eyes of Eve. We hear voice and feel her reactions. As we read the book, Joanna takes on a journey from the Garden of Eve and as the angels cast Eve and Adam out into the world because of their sin of eating the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge.
Even despite the fall, Eve felt the love of her “Papa God’ and her husband. She marveled when Adam gave her a new name filled with promise.
“Eve: that name is precious to me. It holds the love of my husband; he chose me
as the mother of his children, and renamed me. It holds the love of my Father,
a new start, and the promise of a saviour.”
This profound story of Eve also provides great applications for our daily lives and encourages us to seek closer intimacy with our loving Father who awaits us and desires us to know him more.
Forever Loved: Eve’s Story includes:
- My Story: The author’s personal story of encountering God as Father.
- Eve’s Story: A beautifully creative retelling of the Bible story of Eve.
- Your Story: Encouragement and prayers to take you deeper into God’s presence.
