Even Better Than Eden

Often, readers will ask me how to get the most out of their Bible reading or help on understanding God’s Word.  In this book, Even Better Than Eden by Nancy Guthrie, we see that the Bible is so much more than we ever imagined.

The Bible is sometimes summarized as creation, fall, redemption, restoration, but according to Even Better Than Eden “… the future is not headed toward merely a restoration of Eden’s goodness. From the very beginning, the Bible’s story has always been headed toward consummation, toward glory. This book traces nine themes—the tree of life, garden and wilderness, the image of God, clothing, Sabbath rest, marriage, the offspring, the temple, and the city of Jerusalem—throughout the Bible, revealing how God’s plan for the new creation will be far more glorious than the original.”

In Even Better Than Eden, Ms. Guthrie shows you how the Bible is not just God’s story, but your story, as well.

This book will help you understand God’s plan for the future of His people―life in a garden even better than Eden and how you can glimpse this beautiful future even now.

The book, broken down into nine sections, covers:


1. The Story of the Wilderness

2. The Story of the Tree

3. The Story of His Image

4. The Story of Clothing

5. The Story of the Bridegroom

6. The Story of Sabbath

7. The Story of the Offspring

8. The Story of a Dwelling Place

9. The Story of the City
