Experience the Gospels in a way 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 an artful retelling that is captivating, moving, and alive with the joy you felt the first time you opened the Bible.
I had a little bit of a hard time getting into this book, but once I got past the first chapter it picked up and caught my interest.
Sometimes I envy people who were not raised in the church, and who get to experience Jesus, the Bible, and everything else to do with God in a way that we never have, or have forgotten. This book gives an idea of what that may be like. Seeing the story of Jesus through the eyes of animals who have no clue what is going on, or why things happen they way they do gives the reader a refreshing look at the events of the Gospels.
No one knows what and how animals think, but the author did a great job of portraying how they may think and what might possibly go through the minds of an animal. I liked his writing style, and the way he covered these well known stories from the Bible. This is one of those books that is totally different from others, but is worth reading.
