The Future of Adam and Eve by Mary Rosera Joyce


The Future of Adam and Eve by Mary Rosera Joyce

Adam and Eve as archetypes of human nature are more alive now than ever. They in us want to find what they lost in the beginning. But they are still facing three ancient and traditional walls. They cannot climb over, tunnel under, or break through them. They can only find the doors in these walls and open them. Eve, especially, wants to do so. She was the first to lose the gift. But she cannot find and pass through the doors alone. She needs to do so together with Adam. The walls represent barriers in their personhood, in their likeness to God, and in their view of their origin. Though redeemed, Adam and Eve continue to think that they are basically animals, that they have no spousal likeness to what seems to be the masculine face of God, and that they were created in parts: body first and soul added. Adam and Eve within us are ready to search for doors in walls that open to a sunburst of new discoveries. This book reveals their desire to recover in us what they, and we too, lost in the beginning.
