Who Told You That You Were Naked? A Refreshing Reexamination of the Garden of Eden by William E. Combs is a nonfiction book based on the Garden of Eden. This book was published in 2016 by Carpenter’s Son Publishing. The author is a retired Presbyterian minister, who came up with this idea by a sermon that also uses his experiences. He received his Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from the Fuller Theological Seminary.

The reason for this book is to consider the events that brought sin and death into the world. This book is an interesting book to read.

The author starts the book with a vivid memory from his childhood. The memory is a vivid picture of the first time he saw the aurora borealis in Alaska when he was a child. It is a vivid descriptive memory that it is like you are there with him.

The purpose of this book is to consider the events that made sin and death come into the world. The author reflects on the joy of the Garden of Eden; the finding of a helpmate for Adam; the plans that God had for them; and to their leaving the Garden of Eden because of sin. He also explores what happened after Adam and Eve left the Garden including Cain killing his brother, Abel. The book goes on to talk about the relationship of faith; individual’s faith; God’s promise to everyone through faith; establishing a relationship with Jesus; how to walk in the way; and how to follow him. There is so much to read and contemplate that one will have to read the book to find out.

What was interesting to me was the personal testimonies about himself and his family that he wrote about in this book. I really liked learning about his church life and how he became a minister. I also enjoyed the thought questions at the end of each chapters which made you stop and think about what you read. This book was filled with immense Bible quotes and research that you know that the author put time and effort into writing this book.

I am a church goer but not to the one the author goes to but for me personally, I didn’t care for the adding of conversations and descriptions of what wasn’t in the Bible. For example, the conversation and details of what went on in the Garden of Eden. We don’t know what Adam or Eve did or said because it is not written in the Bible.

I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars because even though it is full of research, details, Bible quotes and personal testimonies, it still for me added stuff that wasn’t in the Bible. I still enjoyed it. People who will enjoy this book will be the ones who love reading and mediating on religious book like church goers and ones who are just starting out in their journey to God.
