A friend recommended Tapestry by Bishop SeraphimSigrist. I liked it very much. It’s reads like stream-of-consciousness. It provides many interesting vignettes. Here is a meaningful snippet lifted from Chapter 18. Not that I think there was a literal Adam, still, nonetheless I like this.
Ch. 18 Eden as Past, Future, and Present
Poem by Charles Reznikoff
As I was wandering with my happy thoughts,
I looked and saw
that I had come into a sunny place, familiar
and yet strange.
“Where am I?” I asked a stranger. “Paradise.”
“Can this be Paradise?” I ask, surprised,
For there were motor cars and factories.
“It is” he answered. This is the sun that
shone on Adam once;
The very wind that blew on him, too.
