EDEN: The Animals' Parable/Kindle Fire Giveaway

  Litfuse Publicity Group  - Something is always stirring here!


EDEN
The Animals' Parable
by
Keith Korman 
 illustrated by Lisa Paris
 

"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 THOUGHTS
 I was inspired by this book.  It brought out some emotions that I had no idea this book would.  It's told from the eyes of animals.  The story being told is The Greatest Story Ever Told.   It was exciting and interesting viewing it from a different way. It seemed perfect in every way.  This isn't just to be read to children but by adults as well.  Then as the children and grandchildren grow they can read it by themselves and remember it for a long time.  It stays in your mind even after the last page is turned. I liked that the author didn't write it as a person would but the sentences were as if an animal would have said them, or at least that's how I saw it.   It's was creative and imaginative and as I read a got a special magical feeling.  It was just special, extremely special.  A lot of books these days are just stories put down on paper. There is very little imagination used, and the creativity is next to none.  So this author nailed it all the way around.   The story, as you travel with Eden, will sometimes bring a tear to your eye and at others, a smile to your face.   It will make you stop and think about your faith and how you stand with it.  It also is a good way to introduce little ones about Jesus.  I didn't look at it as a religious book but as a book that refreshes  your faith in an easy way, not a preaching way. If it''s been a long time since you've thought about this story, now is the time to refresh those wonderful feelings and thoughts.   This is a great book to keep on your book shelf to read and re-read.   It's definitely a classic. I wish I could give this book more than 5 STARS.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Litfuse Blogging Program and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
