About the book:

Eden: The Animals’ Parable (Liberty Island, April 2016)

“Ask the animals, and they will teach you.” -Job 12:7

Experience the Gospels in a way that you never imagined.

In this beautifully inspired retelling of the Gospels, we see Jesus and his disciples in the Holy Land through the eyes of the animals–especially his intrepid and loyal dog, Eden.

With a wise, old donkey, innocent lambs, and legions of curious field mice–the animals follow their master’s journey across Galilee and onto Jerusalem, rapt with awe and wonder and bearing great tidings–even if they don’t fully comprehend the divine events they witness.

Simple, clear, and spiritually profound, Eden is for readers of all ages, this artful retelling is captivating, moving, and alive with the joy you felt the first time you opened the Bible.

About the author:

Keith Korman is a literary agent and novelist. Over the years he has represented many nationally-known writers of fiction and non-fiction at his family’s literary agency, Raines & Raines. The idea for Eden first came to him as a child when he saw the little calf jump across the stable in the prelude to William Wyler’s Ben Hur. And he’s been thinking about it ever since.

My review (4-stars):

A book that can be enjoyed by all.   As an animal lover, I found the authors use of retelling the Gospels through the eyes of the animals to be unique. 

As the animals followed their master’s journey across Galilee, I could well imagine their awe.

I found this to be inspirational even as an adult that has studied the Bible through the years, I would say that parents and grandparents may very well wish to add this to your libraries to read to your younger children.  This would also make a perfect addition to your church library.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Litfuse Blogging program and have given my honest opinion.
