The First Love Story

May 16, 2017

Tuesday, we’re talking about the oldest relationship in the Christian world: Adam and Eve. The writer Bruce Feiler says the two don’t get the credit they deserve, and in a new book he aims to redeem them for a new generation. According to Feiler, the tale of Adam and Eve is a timeless myth that still has much to teach us. They confronted the ultimate human fear—loneliness—and defeated it with the ultimate human expression—love. Feiler joins us to explore the meaning of the first love story.

Bruce Feiler writes the “This Life” column for the Sunday New York Times. He’s the writer/presenter of the PBS series “Walking the Bible” and “Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler.” He’s also the author of six a number of books, including Walking the Bible, The Secrets of Happy Families, and his latest, The First Love Story: Adam, Eve, and Us [Independent bookstores;Amazon;Audible].
