Abstract:

What's worse: to do something wrong and be punished for it, or to be punished for something that you didn't do at all? This problem is at the heart of some of our deepest questions about God and humanity, sin and justice, damnation and grace. In this program with Bill Moyers, Elaine Pagels speaks about how the early Christians faced the realities of suffering and guilt, and how their answers still affect us today. A professor of religion at Princeton University, Pagels finds in the story of Adam and Eve more than a parable from ancient faiths; in Adam, Eve, and the Serpent, she explores what the old story of the Garden of Eden reveals about our attitudes toward sexuality, politics, suffering and guilt, and the roles of men and women in Western society.
