Item description for Who Told You That You Were Naked?: A Refreshing Reexamination of the Garden of Eden by William Combs...

The knowledge of good and evil we inherited from Adam is the wellspring, not only of our ability to choose between right and wrong but also of our feelings of insecurity and vulnerability. When Adam and Eve gained this knowledge, they compared their individual differences and concluded their own uniqueness was no longer acceptable to their spouse.

Like them, we try to "clothe" our perceived inadequacies with things like education, wealth, a notable position or even religious piety in an attempt to feel OK. But no matter how hard we try, we can still find ourselves in situations where we feel out of place or unprepared.

In the midst of our insecurity, we need to hear the Lord ask, "Who told you that you need to be thinner, younger, prettier, more athletic or experienced?"

In the Garden, the Lord clothed Adam and Eve in animal skins to cover their nakedness. Through faith in His Son Jesus Christ, God offers to replace our errant choices and perceived liabilities with His righteousness, security, and peace.

This refreshing reexamination of one tumultuous afternoon in the Garden of Eden will forever change the way you look at sin and salvation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Who Told You That You Were Naked??

Why put the tree in the garden?  Aug 12, 2017
Who Told You That You Were Naked? A Refreshing Reexamination of the Garden of Eden, by William E. Combs. This is a book that contains ten chapters, each chapter is filled with Scripture, insights from the author, personal stories, and study questions for discussion. I liked how Combs explained about why God put the tree in the middle of the Garden. He could have just as easily not put that temptation in the way. Also, Adam and Eve could have chosen not to eat the forbidden fruit, but God allowed them to choose which path to follow. The one of obedience or the one of sin. Choosing to disobey God created all sorts of feelings that Adam and Eve had never dealt with before…shame, fear, knowledge of good and evil. I think God would have preferred to spare them from these feelings, but it was their choice. Learning faith can be tough. This book is filled with wisdom and insight from William combs. He explains faith, sin, death, truth, salvation and many other concepts in an easy to read 200 page book. He introduces us to other folks in the Bible that dealt with sin, and how God offered His grace and forgiveness. This book reminds the reader that Jesus and His sacrifice is the reason we have complete forgiveness. This is a great read for the new Christian or the experienced one. I received this book from The Book Club Network and the author in exchange for my honest review.
 
Disobedience in the Garden  Jul 18, 2017
As a small child I learned the story of the first man and woman created by God but my perception of the events in the Garden of Eden has changed as my Christian walk has continued and my knowledge has increased. I just read this book written by William E. Combs and it further challenges and deepens my understanding. "Who Told You That You Were Naked?" explores the story of Adam and Eve, their special time with God, their encounter with the serpent and the consequences for all mankind. He uses easy to understand language to paint word pictures to share his personal interpretation of this biblical occurence that introduced disobedience and the knowledge of good and evil into our world by the failure of Adam and Eve to follow God's instructions. Yes, it is Mr. Comb's interpretation but he does offer scripture to support his statements. And since Adam and Eve were certainly not the last to disobey God he lists many other Biblical characters as examples of people who have sinned and then received forgiveness because of the sacrifice of Jesus. William E. Combs is a retired minister and he does share many personal experiences along with his own interpretation of Scripture but I like that each chapter of this book ends with discussion questions to help deepen our understanding and I also appreciate that there are end notes to further substantiate the author's statements. I received a copy of this book from the author and The Book Club Network but this review is my personal opinion.
 
The Inherent Knowledge of Good & Evil  May 23, 2017
“If we recognize the root of sin is our mental capacity to discern good and evil, then we can begin to understand we are incapable of overcoming this antagonist,” William E. Combs writes in his book, Who Told You That You Were Naked? A Refreshing Reexamination of the Garden of Eden.

~ What ~
This two-hundred-and-forty-two-page paperback targets readers looking for an updated viewpoint of the fall of humanity in the Garden of Eden. Using the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible, verses are written throughout the text and discussed in detail. After an introduction, ten chapters with discussion questions cover the topic, ending with endnotes.

Written by a retired Presbyterian minister, the book concentrates on possible scenarios of Adam and Eve in the Garden after they had eaten of the tree of good and evil, became shameful being naked, and felt guilty disobeying God. Also using examples of Cain, Moses, David, Paul, John, and Jesus in the Bible, added are the author’s personal experiences, interjections, and other interpretations of Scripture.

~ Why ~
Since we were not in the Garden of Eden when the first couple sinned, we do not know explicitly what each was feeling when partaking of the tree of good and evil. The writer’s creative vignettes force readers to think how it may have happened and why. I appreciated the mentioning of touching verses eating the fruit, exegesis versus eisegesis, and contemporary and alternative interpretations of the historical, life-changing event.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have or want a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will not be interested in this book about the inception of sin and path to eternal salvation. Some may not like a book with a pastor’s experiences or analogies such as outhouses, an earth-swallowing event, or his wife’s challenges. Others may notice the highlighted repetition of statements which are meant to stop the reader and consider its content.

~ Wish ~
Although I felt parts of the book got off topic and included personal references, I was reminded that Jesus dying on the cross for our sin reestablished God’s direct relationship with us.

~ Want ~
If you do not mind a retold version of Adam and Eve that takes ample liberties regarding our inherent knowledge of good and evil, this may bring it to the forefront of your thinking.

Thanks to the author for this complimentary book that I am reviewing freely.
