Thanks K.
I'll continue to enjoy the story, but so far there seems to be enough foreshadowing in the book that it might be considered for insertion into the Old Testament. Could you imagine Genesis, Perelandra, Exodus...?

If you ask me Eb, "Perelandra" is more of a sequel to Genesis than a forshadowing. Or better yet an alternative to the Garden of Eden scenario, done in a reverent manner so as not to violate the rule not to add or remove any words from the Holy Scriptures. Hey, it's just speculative fiction, not revelation. That's what I like about it.
so it goes...
