Dave came to belief as a child and grew up steeped in biblical narratives. His father was a pastor and a student of both theology and biblical languages. Growing up, Dave often asked his father to read aloud the scriptures in their original Hebrew and Greek. While Dave could not understand them, the music of these languages in their original tongue fascinated him. His late father’s library of commentaries now lines a wall in his home.
In his debut novel, The Confessions of Adam, a re-telling of the universal and dramatic narrative that opens the book of Genesis, he has crafted a richly imagined story of creation and its aftermath – drawing on a lifetime of familiarity with the text as well as more recent study.
David J. Marsh holds a BS in Communications from Grace College and an MFA in Creative Writing from Butler University, Indianapolis. His debut novel (tentatively titled) The Confessions of Adam (Bold Vision Books, 2019) is due out later this year. A fascination with biblical narratives drives much of his fiction. Dave’s work has appeared in Booth, NoiseMedium, and Fixional.
