JOURNEY FROM EDEN is a complete history of the sexual customs, creeds, and ceremonies among the people by whom, and about whom, the Bible was written. This fascinating and revealing book goes behind the scenes to present an in-depth, documented account of everything you were not told in Sunday School, and were afraid to ask! "Must" reading for all who are interested in the Bible and ancient customs. Well documented, scholarly, informative and intriguing. Over 160 illustrations.
The author handles the delicate task respectably, yet candidly. Aaron says, "Sex, in one form or another, was closely interwoven with the beliefs and practices of the Bible people...the Hebrews circumcised the penis, they did not amputate it!"

Kevin James Aaron has, in years past, had some ministry background, serving as an assistant minister at several churches. While in the Washington D.C. area he had access to some rare books at the Library of Congress and other places. A certain intrigue developed regarding the linkage between the Bible and ancient practices, from which the book evolved. Being a biblical scholar with an analytical mind, Aaron has skillfully explored the subject, revealing many facts and hidden meanings that the casual reader may have never considered.
Realizing the book is controversial and somewhat of a misfit, i.e. not "good" enough to go with the sanctimonious perhaps, and not "bad" enough to go with the perverted, Mr. Aaron has sought to maintain a low personal profile, being content to let the book speak for itself.
