What if the primary truth about Eve is different than our strongest impressions of her?
The conversation is happening over radio airwaves, through the blogosphere, around dining room tables and dorm rooms. "There are two stories of Eve," we admit. "But is it possible that the one that says that she is dangerous, easily deceived and inferior is not the primary truth about her or about us as women?"
What if Eve is primarily an imagebearer of the living God, a strong power (Hebrew word: ezer) meant to fully partner with Adam, and what if men and women must fully partner together to reflect God's love and justice to the world? (Full link list below.)
