Eden: The Animals' Parable by Keith Korman


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.

My opinion: This book was delightfully refreshing and insightful, this book is a delightful little book for animal lovers looking at the life of Christ through the eyes of animals. The writing was very engaging and I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would, the story moved quickly, even as an adult and I can really imagine this appealing to younger children as it is told vivid detail. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
