Eden: The Animal's Parable by Keith Korman ~ Review

Eden: The Animals Parable
My Review:  The story of Jesus as told by the animals, and most especially his canine companion, Eden.

I was intrigued by the premise of this book and though it was a bit of a slow read for me, with the shifting characters in the first few chapters, it was fun to see things as someone unfamiliar with the story of Christ would see them.
This would be an enjoyable read for all ages, and I loved the storytelling, and the gentle wending of the story, in keeping with many of the traditions of the times.

The only things that I had problems with were the times when the story was inconsistent with the Bible, now I realize that many fictitious licenses were taken throughout, the addition of some dialog, and changes in timeline, details, etc. Though to some extent I'm unsure that these changes were necessary to the story.

Overall, a lovely book, from beginning to end it tells the story well, with beautiful imagery.

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.
