For further study:

  • C.S. Lewis, Perelandra - Fantastic fictional work on the nature of sin and temptation. The main character finds himself whisked away to another world at its beginning. He witnesses the temptation of the first woman, only she succeeds where Eve (and Adam) failed.
  • Ray Ortlund, "Eating the forbidden fruit," - Another perspective on the first sin, this short blog post show how the first couple broke all Ten Commandments in their rebellion against God.
  • Francis Thompson, "The Hound of Heaven," - Josh referenced this poem at the end of the sermon. Click above for a link to the poem. Watch the video below to hear it read.
