The Magic Fruit

We know this story–or we think we do. C. S. Lewis did a great job with “Perelandra”…but I wanted to look at the story from Adam’s viewpoint. I was surprised when I reread the story that God did not tell Eve to avoid the tree, He only told Adam. And, of course, the talking animals are my fantasy…but the Bible does tell us that the ‘snake’ did talk. I began writing this before 2010 and finished it in 2017. It should have nothing theological that is not orthodox. However, you should read it for entertainment. It is not scripture. As I say elsewhere, read it as historical fiction.
