The Death of Adam: Essays on Modern Thought - Marilynne Robinson - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Death of Adam:

Marilynne's thoughts about American culture.

My favorite Marilynne Robinson quote from the book:

"The antidote to fear, distrust, or self-interest is always loyalty."

Questions to ponder while reading Marilynne Robinson's The Death of Adam:

Do you have faith?

Do you know your history?

My review of the book The Death of Adam:

A great philosophical look into the foundations of American culture.

Well-researched and logically thought out.

Not a casual read - keep your Oxford's nearby.
