From Voldemort's snake mascot in Harry Potter novels to the 'forbidden fruit' apple that places Snow White to sleep in fairy stories, we're inundated with references to the backyard of Eden in pop culture from an early age. On a deeper point, the tale has been used as justification for conflicting viewpoints on matters starting from nudity to marriage to slavery. coming near near Eden digs a lot deeper than basically cataloguing interesting Adam and Eve references in pop culture by means of exploring how those references are used and the way they form society. Theresa Sanders presents crucial ancient heritage from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim views to teach the relevance and prominence of Adam and Eve's tale in lifestyles today.
