Description: The starting point of the Life of Adam and Eve is the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The book contains narrative embellishments including a speech from Satan explaining why he was kicked out of heaven as well as additional punishments received by Adam and Eve. It shares with it many features found in the New Testament including an interest in the connection between Adam, Eve, and sin.
