Gearing up for our Bible talk on Genesis tomorrow? Here’s something…
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ East of Eden by John Steinbeck. Not a favorite of mine, because it did not bring me joy but rather left me with the darkness of humanity. It is Steinbeck’s allegorical retelling of the book of Genesis. Featuring twins Cal and Aron. One good, one bad.
Question: What is east of Eden?
Answer: The land of Nod, where no purity exists.
More tomorrow on Genesis!

I'm a freelance writer and historical researcher in Detroit. I hold a master’s degree in education from Oakland University with a concentration in English and history. In addition to being the author of the historical fiction novel, Proper Mourning, my fiction and poetry have appeared in Halcyone Magazine, The 3288 Review, The Write Launch, and the Ketchup Press. My nonfiction has been featured in Valley Living Magazine, Michigan Out of Doors Magazine, and Planet Detroit News. I have won awards for my writing through Oakland University, and I'm currently producing and directing a documentary film about economic and social change in one of Detroit’s oldest neighborhoods. In my spare time, I whittle, repair broken violins, and I love to fish. I reside somewhere in Michigan with my husband, children, and the fastest dog that ever lived.
