Eve ? the mother of the living by Shahnaz Mansouri p. 15 ? 16.Like man, woman was created with a free-will for fellowship with God and man. And like man, after the entry of sin and the tragic death of Abel, Eve realised that it was grace that gave her Seth and grace that would enable her be the mother of all living. Ms Mansouri then shows how women today can learn from the lessons of Eve?s life.
