review: There were some “little” changes here and there to the biblical account (such as Adam and Eve being parted at the moment of temptation) that become significant changes because of their implications (now Adam eats the forbidden fruit because he can’t bear to be parted from Eve) but in other details it is precise and insightful (the headship of Adam, substitutionary atonement, the spiritual significance of God’s clothing Adam and Eve, etc and etc).

What makes this an enduring classic and a book deserving to be on every Christians’ shelf is its portrayal of the gospel as a story–as the epic poem that it truly is. It will take your breath away.
