The Confessions of Adam, David J. Marsh

Adam and Eve. We think we know what happened. Now Adam breaks his silence.  Oren’s arrogance and position have afforded him many acquaintances and no friends. He inherited the renowned scribal school in Susa from his father—an emotionally distant scholar.Adam has sought Oren out. He believes Oren has the skill to help untangle the story from his memory. A skeptical Oren promises his pen, but not his silence.  At his home by the sea Adam speaks once and for all of what happened, unpacking the great burden of guilt and regret he carries. Oren comes to see all he and Adam share – lost love, estranged sons, memories that must be confronted. And a Maker who knows no distance.  As Adam grows ill Oren rushes to capture the final details of the story, a story only he will now hold—the story of the origin of all mankind.

Marsh

David J. Marsh came to belief as a child and grew up steeped in biblical narratives. His father was a pastor and a student of both theology and  biblical languages. Growing up, Dave often asked him to read aloud the scriptures in their original Hebrew and Greek. While Dave could not understand them, the music of these languages in their original tongue fascinated him. His late father’s library of commentaries now lines a wall in his home.

In his debut novel, The Confessions of Adam (Bold Vision, Fall 2019, a re-telling of the universal and dramatic narrative that opens the book of Genesis, he has crafted a richly imagined story of creation and its aftermath – drawing on a lifetime of familiarity with the text as well as more recent study.

Mr. Marsh holds a BS in Communications from Grace College and an MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction) from Butler University, Indianapolis. A fascination with Hebrew biblical narratives drives much of his fiction. Dave’s work has been recognized by or appeared in Utmost, Booth Online, NoiseMedium, and Fixional. 

Dave is founder of the Westside Writers’ Workshop and twice monthly he records what he’s learning about the craft of fiction on his blog “Revel and Rant” at www.davidjmarsh.comDave and his wife Cyndi reside in Danville, Indiana.
