The Lament of Eve

   
by Johanna Manley

“The Lament of Eve attempts an exegesis of sections of the first five chapters of Genesis based on combining commentary of the Fathers of the Church. Saint Silouan of Mount Athos gave us Adam’s Lament, as brought to us by Archimandrite Sophrony of St. John the Baptist Community in Essex, England. But since in recent times women have hoped for more expression of their roles and being, the emphasis here is on Eve. In her Lament, Eve is addressing her progeny in her old age, up to and including Lamech. This book is especially addressed to Orthodox Christians for reading during Great Lent. The readings in the lectionary during the period before Holy Week are from Genesis, Isaiah and Proverbs. Also, the theme of The Lament of Eve is full of compunction.”
