"In the Beginning" tells in prose the lives of those before the Flood. Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, Enoch, Methuselah, Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth are brought to life, along with many others we know only by a name in the genealogies. Why did Adam and Eve listened to a talking snake? Why is Abel called the first person who lived by faith? What was Cain's life like after he murdered his brother? How did the people of that day go from innocence to total annihilation? Who were the sons of God? Who were the Nephilim? All of these topics are tackled in novel form. The author's intent is that those who read this book will see these people as human, and will consider that history actually began as Genesis narrates it.
