    "Finished" doesn't mean I read it all. I was disappointed, often perplexed by the author's assertions, and found it unhelpful and frustrating; so I abandoned it.

    Some very intriguing ideas. For example, He wonders about God in the Garden and what exactly he is keeping from Adam and Eve. from Barth he supposes it is the secret of the inequality between Creator and Creatures - IF God's intent is for an equal rlp - friendship - then wouldn't this profound inequality be a huge hindrance - even make it impossible. So God doesn't tell. Then when they eat the apple - their eyes are open - their first impulse is to worship which is inherent in that profoundly UN Some very intriguing ideas. For example, He wonders about God in the Garden and what exactly he is keeping from Adam and Eve. from Barth he supposes it is the secret of the inequality between Creator and Creatures - IF God's intent is for an equal rlp - friendship - then wouldn't this profound inequality be a huge hindrance - even make it impossible. So God doesn't tell. Then when they eat the apple - their eyes are open - their first impulse is to worship which is inherent in that profoundly UNEQUAL rlp. So he supposes that worship is the exact opposite of God's original intent. I also liked his defense of relational secrets in the course of the discussion. Intimacy is build on discretion, e.g. mother and child. All this though is just a precursor to where he's ultimately heading. There is great insight in what transpires with Cain and Abel - several things but it starts with that narrative being the concluding act of the Fall rather than a truly separate incident. Cain demonstrates a quid pro quo attitude about worship that so many of us have. We are offering something to God, forgetting that everything we have is something God provided. This is a very worthwhile read though the weakest part of the book is what happens as a result of all the great insight he provides. I guess the weakest part of the presentation is the "and so..."
