Phil and the gang are out on vacation, so we’re repeating a classic episode. A discussion with Old Testament scholar and friend of the show Dr. John Walton about his book ? “The Lost World of Adam and Eve.” Were Adam and Eve real people? Were they created immortal? And what’s with that crazy “No really ? God made you from my rib” story? Worth a second listen!

So I really want to read John Walton’s books. Which one do I start with? Thanks for the help!
Hmm… it depends what you’re interested in. The Lost World of Genesis 1 is a great one, which nicely precedes The Lost World of Adam and Eve. Most of the rest are more academic works, or Bible commentaries. Ancient Near Eastern Thought and the Old Testament is a good one as well, though a bit more academic than the “Lost World” books.
