Promises From the Garden
Book Description HTML | Report this book
The Bible is filled with long-haired prophets communing on mountain tops with God, and free souls running naked through the forest eating nuts and berries and living off the land. The novel, Promises From the Garden, retells the story of Adam and Eve, the first couple to "keep company" while living under the stars. This yarn is inspired by John Milton's epic poem, Paradise Lost, the Genesis episode of The Fall. Promises From the Garden explores a deeper meaning of life in Eden, a Zen philosophical and Christian mystical message. This novel considers the concept of spiritual oneness or non-duality through a humorously wise and mischievous God, a master of the vaudevillian one-liner, a corporate swinger, and inventor of the grape-a fruit he is sure will go over in a big way.
