Fratricidal Inheritance : The Denial of Guilt and Loss of Freedom in the Epic of Murder
In "Fratricidal Inheritance," Gregory M. Nolff offers a new analysis of the story of Cain and Abel. The author applies several critiques of his unique construction to this primordial episode in man's history--"Liberal-Objectivist," "Historical-Critical," and "Existential-Theological." While the bible is arguably the world's most widely read book, Mr. Nolff points out the superficial nature of our knowledge of this sacred text with impressive results.
