Platt, Jr. Where does it come from? What does it mean? The familiar version in Genesis is not the source of this fundamental legend, it is not a spontaneous, Heaven-born account that sprang into place in the Old Testament. It is simply a version, unexcelled perhaps, but a version of a myth or belief or account handed down by word of mouth from generation to generation of mankind-through the incoherent, unrecorded ages of man it came--like an inextinguishable ray of light that ties the time when human life began, with the time when the human mind could express itself and the human hand could write. This is the most ancient story in the world--it has survived because it embodies the basic fact of human life. A fact that has not changed one iota; amid all the superficial changes of civilization's vivid array, this fact remains: the conflict of Good and Evil; the fight between Man and the Devil; the eternal struggle of human nature against sin,.

Lilith: The First Woman? (Biblical Stories Explained)
The story begins after Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden. It speaks movingly of their sense of less and sorrow at the transition and the difficulty of adjusting to the world outside. It diverges significantly from the orthodox biblical account in that it gives responsibility for the dispute between Cain and Abel to jealousy over their sister. In the narrative there are also changes to which figures invent weapons of war, begin particular civilisations and drive forward the progress of man. There is also an extensive speculative genealogical section with links from Adam all the way to the hypothesised genealogy of Jesus. Malan went through a series of curacies at various parishes and maintained a lifelong theological interest, however he was particularly noted for his linguistic prowess and the reader benefits from his encyclopaedic knowledge in the form of this impressive work.
