Forever Loved, Eve’s Story is one book I won’t soon forget. I am a big fan of Biblical Fiction as you probably already know, and this one having a definite devotional feel to it makes it even better.

A Libraryan’s Review

Concentrating on the first 4 chapters of Genesis as Eve’s Story has been done before, but this is different. The heart of the story comes alive in a fresh way.
The scripture references are included, so you can check each point out for yourself, which is always a plus in any book like this.
My first impression was Wow! I like this.

Relationship:

I know my dad loves me, and I know God loves me. God is my father, but do I act like I know or believe it? Do my attitude and actions show me as a daughter who loves her father above all others?
 Wanting to spend time together, tell Him about my day, bring a smile to His face?
Or is it “thank you for this, save me from that” day after day? Not that those are wrong, but a steady diet of that, must get old!
I was definitely challenged in this area of relationship!

Fear of Missing Out:

We don’t know what we don’t know. We just know there are things we don’t know. And we wonder if it’s good. If HE is keeping something from us, that we might like! That’s what happened to Eve.
I guess it boils down to trust.
  • Trusting that He has the best plan
  • That He knows & loves us individually
  • And that He is faithful to forgive us over and over again.
Seeing Cain’s actions and attitude from a mother’s perspective opened my eyes to some interesting things. A teen who regularly hears about his parents having experienced and then ruined a perfect world, could definitely lead to hopelessness and the desire to “do it my way” I believe.

Guest Post from Joanna

True or False? Eve spent time with God before meeting Adam.

True or False? Eve wasn’t called Eve until after the Fall.

Does the Bible even say?

Until recently, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you, even though I’ve been a Christian many years, and thought I knew the Bible story of Eve really well!

It was during hot, sticky, jet-lagged nights, about four years ago, on holiday overseas, that God started giving me new and wonderful insight into Eve’s life. Words literally started pouring through my head: the story of Eve, but not as I’d heard it before!

I’d always had negative connotations of Eve – the first woman to be tempted, the first to sin. But the story God revealed to me during my sleepless nights was one of preciousness and beauty. It was the story of Father and daughter, of God’s incredible love for Eve, and His equally wondrous love for me.

As Eve’s story unfolded over several nights, I wrote it down; and God gave me a book I did not ask for (but am forever grateful for): Forever Loved: Eve’s Story.

These new insights into Eve’s story have been life-changing. God has brought me deeper into His love than I could ever have imagined. (In the introduction of ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’ I share something of the deep hurt and insecurity I experienced growing up – including the time I got into BIG trouble with my teacher – my cry to know God as Father, and how God’s love has brought healing and freedom.)

It’s my prayer that ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’ touches the lives of women around the world, that women may come into deeper experience of God as Father, and know just how beautiful and precious they are to Him.

So, back to the True/False questions at the beginning of this post!

What do you think?

I’d love to share with you what I’ve discovered by giving you a free copy of a devotional I’ve written called ‘Treasures Hidden in the Story of Eve’.

This devotional explores some of the amazing truths God’s shown me about Eve, and the wonderful implications for us as women today (and includes extracts from ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’). Download the devotional for free here.

I pray God touches you as deeply as He has me, as you explore the Bible story of Eve afresh. May you encounter the love of Father God as never before.

Joanna xx
