The Lament of Eve Paperback / softback
Edited by Johanna Manley
Part of the Holy Fathers S. series
A prologue provides commentary from Sts. Basil the Great, John Chrysostom, Gregory of Nazianzus, Symeon the New Theologian, Gregory of Nyssa, Didymus the Blind, and others on Genesis 1-5.
The compassionate "Lament of Eve" follows a simple style based upon the commentary by the Church Fathers.
Many thought-provoking insights are included on: the creation and dignity of men and women; the image and likeness of God and theosis; mankind's stewardship of the earth; propgation before and after the Fall; the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil; the fall, the reasons for the expulsion from Paradise and the sentence of mortality, God's love and providence and His primacy in our lives.
