Augustines day is even more true today. For many in these enlightened times, Bible stories present a stumbling-block to considering any of the great Western faiths as providing a way of spiritual growth: some narratives seem to condone immoral actions while others seem worthy of mockery or strain good sense. But there is an inside to these narratives far more digestible than their outside, and this inside is explored in Adam and Eve.

From the episodes in the Garden of Eden to the Exodus from Egypt and the battle for entry into the Promised Land, one story after another receives a penetrating treatment revealing a current of esoteric meaning. The interpretations given are traditional in the truest sense of the word, and the authors hope is that this book will have the kind of effect on the contemporary reader that Bishop Ambroses explanations had on St Augustine so many years ago.
