I blame Eve, too. March 25 2012
By T. Shane Couch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Susanna is witty and honest as she shares her life experiences with her readers, possibly at the expense of her pride, but that's another plus to this book. She lets us laugh at her expense, but at the same time, we can see ourselves in her fumbling through life and learn from the insights she's gained. Susanna helps us see our selves in the garden of Eden and picks apart the story of Adam and Eve in a way that helps us relate to this familiar account in the Bible. Most importantly, she helps us understand God's heart for us, which is all about love and forgiveness. Nice progression from her first two books which shows she is growing as an author. I have chuckled out loud a few times while reading and that rarely happens when I open a book. Pick up I Blame Eve, grab an apple, and enjoy.

i blame eve July 26 2012
By amy clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When Eve ate the forbidden fruit we lost our chance to have the perfect life. But it sure doesn't stop us from trying. Having perfection is the focus of pretty much our entire lives, even when we know it's not possible. But what would happen if we stopped trying to be perfect and just followed God?

I Blame Eve by Susanna Foth Aughtmon helps women to be honest about what we really crave in life and attempt to let go of our need to be in control. She uses scripture and personal stories to show women the freedom they have in embracing the path God has laid out for every one of us.

Upon first sight, this novel is pretty striking with its bright green cover and a bitten into apple. It just makes one curious and evokes familiar feelings about the story of the garden. I have several of Susanna's other books, none of which I have read, so this was my introduction to her writing. It was a pretty good read, though it didn't grab me as much as I would have liked. Its humor was moderate but could've used just a little more to it.

The book speaks a lot about common struggles for women and mothers, such as the personal need for control and not being able to allow God to take over. And that is a good message that everyone could be reminded of. I Blame Eve would be an awesome book for a women's bible study/small group, and there are even discussion questions in the back.. All in all it was a pretty fair read and approach to issues in the lives of women today from a grace-filled perspective.

Eve's to Blame! April 16 2012
By Jennifer L. Barker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Poor Eve. She gets such a bad rap and yes, in a way she deserves it. But, truthfully, we all would have done the same thing. Satan knew her. He most likely had been watching her for a while. He knew where he could get her and he did.

The question we need to ask is, what can we learn from her? Susanna Aughtmon takes a comical approach to learning more about her and how we tend to view life through the same lenses as Eve did.

I think my favorite part of the book is when the author mentions how a drive to be organized or eat healthy or look right can really be a drive to be in control. This is the interesting part: there's nothing inherently wrong with eating right or being organized. These things are important! However, when we allow these desires to control us, Satan uses them to bind and hinder us in our Christian lives. In fact, most of the things we desire are good, except they become not so good when we allow them to rule us and define our importance for us.

Susanna uses the same comical approach in looking at other areas that we battle: hiding from God, being a perfectionist, a view that God is holding out on me, wanting things that don't satisfy, and so many more. In an easy to understand manner, she brings the issues that we inherited from Eve to the one who can help us overcome them: Jesus. Nothing else matters.

Aughtmon gets to the root of evil for women: how we relate to Eve, because of Eve. With humor and heart, this was a fantastic devotional book I will read again!
