"McPherson shows a talent for plotting while also opening up the narrative to consider deeper theological issues surrounding murder."
From the Author
Cain is a Biblically faithful re-imagining of the story of Cain and Abel, crafted only after years spent studying the original Hebrew text and expert scholars' interpretations of that text.
Beware: this book will challenge your assumptions and demand you suspend disbelief. Genesis is filled with fantastic truths--from the universe rolling off of God's tongue, to the Nephilim in Genesis 6, and the languages of humanity being confused in Genesis 11.
Rediscover the ancient world through Genesis, and find yourself rekindled by the mystery of God's majesty.

I did have trouble with the presense of a Lilith character (I put the book down for a bit when she showed up). I feel like nearly every extra-Biblical fantasy has a Lilith character although this one wasn't the source of all evil this time. The timeline and the presence of a City of God created by God outside the Garden of Eden was one that I struggled with a bit, too, along with the timing of Seth's birth - although Seth's "birth" timing made more sense by the end of the book.
The Bible verses at the beginning of each chapter were perfectly chosen to fit the sequence of events and helped explain some of the author's more creative exploits in a way that showed he had done is Biblical research and was immersed in a relationship with Christ as he wrote this novel.
All in all, for readers of Christian fantasy - especially those who like extra-Biblical Christian fantasy - this is a good read that I recommend.
Note - even with putting down the book at Lilith, i did read it in one day - so it is riveting!
