1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Graham G. Garrison on Feb. 13 2004
Format: Hardcover
Visually stunning, and with text taken straight from the Bible, this book is an amazing read. However, with that said, The Bible: Eden is not a book for everyone. It relies a bit too heavily on the nudity, sexuality, and "intimacy" between Adam & Eve at times. If you are easily offended by such content, it would be best to steer clear from this collection. On the other hand, these instances are presented in such an honest, innocent, and realistic approach, that the content does not seem pornographic.
We get to see the creation, innocence, seduction, and fall of Adam & Even live and in color in the photo-realistic paintings provided in this collection. I would definately recommend to anyone, just bring an open mind to this interpretation of this classic Bible tale.

A quite lovely retelling Feb. 22 2012
By GraphicNovelReporter.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
R. Crumb rather famously re-created the Book of Genesis in comics form, but he didn't quite do the Garden of Eden story the way The Bible: Eden does. This particular story was originally done for Penthouse magazine, so you can imagine ... well, maybe not. It's actually a faithful (no pun intended) retelling, albeit one that certainly doesn't scrimp on the sex and the nudity--so be forewarned that this is not exactly the retelling you'd want to hand off to young readers.

The wording, however, is straight from the Bible. It begins at the beginning -- the creation of the universe -- and ends with the birth of Cain. Scott Hampton's art is wonderful. The figures are certainly sexual, but not presented simply for shock value. Hampton beautifully orchestrates the landscape and imbues it with gorgeous style. The animals and the lush jungle scenery are magnificent.

The text is adapted by both Dave Elliott and Keith Giffen. Elliott notes in the book that he has many Bible stories he'd like to adapt to comics, and the book includes glimpses of some. The announcement of the conception of Jesus from the Book of Matthew and a glimpse at the Book of Daniel are both shown at the end.

I'm not sure how deeply religious readers would react to the book (although the story doesn't deviate from what the Bible already presents), but it's a quite lovely retelling.
