In Book 3. Adam’s Reformation, Adam finds himself mute, paralyzed, and with no recollection of who he is in the care of a strange, older man who restores him to full function and awareness. As Adam reawakens to his body and his life, he is instructed in new ways to perceive the life of the spirit and his role as part of God’s creation. Just as Adam comes to appreciate and understand who he is in the universe—and how to love—he finds he must return to the real world to address situations he has left behind.
