This is a short but valuable collection of stories relating to the Shi’ite beliefs about Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) and aspects of his life. It is great to see these disparate tales gathered together in one book. Related in the book is information that has been related about the beginning of this creation, the conversation between God and the angels concerning Adam’s creation, the properties of the clay used for his creation, his name, the creation of his wife, the books revealed to him, the prostration of the creatures of heaven before him, the prohibited tree, his descent to earth, his marriage and his children. The book is recommended to those who wish to expand their knowledge of the father of mankind.
