NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 10, 2018
In his new biblical commentary, “Stop Blaming Adam and Eve” (published by WestBow Press), John P Foley identifies humanity, human life, as a gift everyone receives that can either be accepted or rejected, by how they act, rather than a right they have through birth. Foley counsels readers to consider their choices and the consequences that follow, because this is what gives meaning to their lives.
The book’s overall personal theme focuses on the relation between the personal “Gift Giver” – God – and the personal gift recipient. Given that everyone is distinctively individual, explains Foley, people are also by nature, social beings; hence they are simultaneously powerful and fragile persons.
“We are recipients of the gift of life and therefore called to be caretakers of the garden of life which we will either cultivate or ruin. We contribute to the consequences of our actions,” Foley says. “Some of us are caretakers and some are not. We need to reflect upon our human responsibilities to care for life, both natural and human, and stop being afraid to love, no matter what the consequences.”
