The story of Cain and Abel is a true story of two brothers. But what do we learn from the account? Is it simply a history of sibling rivalry and jealousy, or does it speak of deeper truths? Why did God reject Cain’s offering, yet look in favour on Abel? Was God guilty of unjustified favouritism?
Paul Taylor analyses these and other questions in this easy-to-read book. He explains exactly what Cain’s problem was. It is our problem and its solution is to be found in Abel’s actions. Although it is a story from the beginning of Genesis, it actually points towards the life of another man whose life was short and ended in bloodshed – Jesus.
