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.


I really enjoyed this book and the way the author used animals to retell stories from the Bible. It was very easy to read and understand. I had to stop at the beginning when there was a warning that the animals needed to move because there was danger coming. Sheba was concerned about her puppies because there were so many of them. How were they going to save all the pups? I loved the answer, " We shall carry them no matter what. None shall be left behind ." That reminded me of the passage in the Bible of the one sheep  that had gone astray and God went after the wandering sheep. He said that no sheep would be left behind. It  make me think how a simple passage in a story told by animals made me realize how true it is that God wants to leave no one behind. I loved the way it was told and thought how easy it would be for a young child to understand it.

Eden is especially endearing and I loved following the journey with this sweet  dog. The animals are used  well to tell different parables from the Bible. I found it to be a book that could be enjoyed with children as their parents read it to them. It makes a great tool to use for discussing what the parables mean from the Bible. As you read to your child what better time then to discuss what the Bible says in parallel to the book. Overall I found the book very well written and definitely one I recommend for all ages. Parents get a copy and enjoy the book with your children. They will love listening to the animals  talk and learn about Jesus in an easy to understand story that will keep their attention.

I received a copy of this book from LitFuse. The review is my honest opinion.
