Overview

In this award-winning collection, the bestselling author of Gilead offers us other ways of thinking about history, religion, and society.

A passionate and provocative celebration of ideas, the old arts of civilization, and life's mystery, The Death of Adam is, in the words of Robert D. Richardson, Jr., a grand, sweeping, blazing, brilliant, life-changing book.
