I can't recommend this book enough. I have read through the Book of Adam and Eve part 1&2. It brings the human element and says that when children came they were different non identical twins. Cain twin sister then 5 seasons later Abel and sister. This sister of Abels was not single for a long time as she had to wait for Seth to come along and grow into manhood, as Cain killed his younger brother and thus her mate. The crafty Satan was continually tricking Adam by impersonating angels send by the Creator.
Later on in part 2 it details the segregation between the descendants of Cain and those of Seth. Since Cain's banishment he took his sister and lived in exile all over the place. With Seth's group remaining in the Mountainous regions and the Cain's offspring lived below and would entice the other to leave the mountain to take part in sin and debauchery. The Mountain dwellers remained chaste and the other group increased greatly in number due to engaging in lusts, even marrying their own mothers, sisters and immediate cousins so that a there was no distinction of relations. I find this book just as engaging as The Book of Jasher as it fleshes out the all to human aspect of trying to be obedient to statues and commandments.

I'm sure the physical edition is as advertised, but I bought the Kindle edition and was disappointed to find that it had no table of contents. That inherently makes an encyclopaedia very difficult to use if you can't search through it or choose which book to read. If this were rectified I would most likely buy it again, but for now I'm glad I could return it.
