The book of Genesis in Bible has a fantastic story of the encounters between God and mankind, and a literal interpretation of that story runs counter to the current knowledge of physical sciences that mankind has. It leads to a natural question – “Can a version of the Genesis be created which is not at odds with the current scientific knowledge, yet remain reasonably close to the original narrative?” In this book, you will find a science-fiction version of Bible, one in which the different encounters that happen between God and mankind are narrated in a different manner. Once you read the version in this book, you will definitely wonder whether the fictional narrative in this book may indeed be closer to the truth than a literal interpretation of the holy book. From the story of creation to the struggle between Jacob and the angel, you will find a narration of Genesis which is completely plausible and consistent with the current scientific knowledge. You will find an explanation for creation within seven days, the obtaining of knowledge by eating the forbidden fruit, the creation of Eve from Adam, Noah’s escape from the flood, the disruption of the tower of Babel with the rise of multiple languages, and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah with Lot’s wife turning into a pillar of salt. These and various other events of Genesis are connected together in a novel that will make an interesting read for the science fiction enthusiast as well as a Biblical scholar.
