Approaching Eden: Adam & Eve in Popular Culture

Approaching Eden2

This theologically rich book is now available; I have read it and wrote a blurb for the cover:

Approaching Eden is a gift to anyone attempting to bring faith and life closer in a world filled with mediated stories: in this case, tales and images influenced by the Biblical creation narrative of Genesis 1-3. Sanders is fearless in her critical analysis but never cavalier. Her prose is energetic and accessible; her surveys broad and her insights bold. Sanders makes theology a pleasure while enticing the reader to deeper theological scrutiny of accepted widely-held interpretations of Genesis through representations of Adam and Eve from movies to museums. Approaching Eden is an intellectual and spiritual delight.”—Sr. Rose Pacatte, FSP, founding director, Pauline Center for Media Studies; St. Anthony Messenger film and television columnist

Back in 2000 I reviewed Celluloid Saints: Images of Sanctity in Film; wonderful. I would read anything Sanders writes.
