A Law from Eden is a thought-provoking text about God and interpretations about life
since Adam and Eve. Marilyn Taplin has written a book that will spark conversation
among readers.
A Law from Eden takes an in-depth look at the Bible and specific interpretations of the
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. She believes that the original sin of Eve eating
the forbidden fruit led to sin overtaking the world. Taplin also asserts that the story of
Sodom and Gomorrah has led to trouble in the world. She writes about the evangelical
Christian belief that only heterosexual sex in marriage is the approved way to express
sexuality. Taplin also writes about how important it is to follow the Ten Commandments
in order to live a fulfilling life.
A Law from Eden has detailed descriptions of Biblical stories and Bible verses that
support her theories about the Bible. She has Bible verses that support her extolling
high virtues in Biblical figures like David: “I was also upright before him, and I kept
myself from mine iniquity.” She also writes about the need that people need to be sober
and watchful in what she perceives in what she perceives as the last days of the world
when she quotes Peter: “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and
watch unto prayer.”
Taplin’s writing is very dedicated to her interpretation of the Bible. The text also has
tables to illustrate the difference between Biblical verses that espouse traditional values
and the modern interpretations of the Bible from some Christian denominations that
conflict with her beliefs. She also writes in great detail about each commandment and
how the Ten Commandments should be obeyed in everyday life.
This book would be best for readers who are evangelical Christians who believe in the
Bible literally. The book is very conservative, so readers who are LGBTQ or have more
liberal interpretations of the Bible may disagree with the tenets of the book. Even
readers who may disagree with Taplin’s beliefs will learn a lot about Biblical teachings.
Even though Taplin has conservative views about homosexuality, she still espouses
God’s open minded attitude of love towards everyone. The book can be read in church
groups or even in secular books group that want to have a debate about religion.
A Law from Eden is a book that will spark discussion. Taplin has written a book that will
show new understandings of the best-selling book in the world.
