Book Description

July 1 2003 Chronicles of Heaven (Book 1)
Creation... the fall of man... God's relationship with his people... the birth of Christ... his resurrection. A fresh new telling of an old, old story - from the perspective of the angels. In The Beginning, God creates the heavens... and the visible realm, including the earth and everything in it. The crowning glory of creation is man and woman, who live and move in both the visible world and the spiritual world, ruling creation in full fellowship with their Creator. Until... until the Garden is invaded by the succulent, deadly Tree of Knowledge and the allures of the fallen Angel of Light... until the unthinkable is done... until the bodies of Adam and Eve shrivel and are blinded to the heavenlies... and the Door between heaven and earth is closed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A promising beginning May 18 2000
By Jackie Tortorella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This first in a series entitled "The Chronicles of the Door" deals with creation and original sin from the viewpoint of the angels. It's a clever premise, and well carried out. The author's great reverence for God shines through. Through the fall of man, the close "hands-on" relationship with God and Heaven is closed off, but the foreshadowing for redemption is evident. In the epilogue, God calls out to Abram, who will of course become Abraham. At that point, I went back to Amazon.com and bought the rest of the series! I recommend The Beginning because it makes one reflect on the magnitude of sin and how it grieves God. The cost of our disobedience is something rarely preached in church. Churches more and more preach on God's love and all the positive things, and try to avoid the controversy of dealing with sin and Satan. This book will cause you to consider the importance of your day-to-day choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars A vivid and emotional descriptive of the Garden of Eden Dec 16 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
As an ex-jock I'm not a real guy, but I wept like I had not wept in 20 years as I read Gene Edwards description of Adam meeting God. I wept when I read of Adam meeting his bride Eve. I wept at the tenderness with which God clothed his Children and sent them from the Garden. Although The Beginning is fiction, Gene Edwards has used Biblical truth to vividly and emotionally describe the events of the beginning of the world. If you have doubts of the glory and honor that it is to be a child of God you must read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning March 15 2006
By Dawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is incredible! Great reading for all ages. It really opens your mind to help you think outside the box of what "we" humans think about God. He created us in His image, yet we forget that He too has feelings and emotions. This is a great visual into the heart of The Father.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! Jan. 5 2008
By K. Rasberry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This play has emotion and creativity that brings the early chapters of Genesis to life. Not since CS Lewis have I read a fictionalization of the Garden story that gave me pause to think. Right after I read this - I read the chapters in the Bible. I have gone and purchased the remaining books in the series as I expect to enjoy each of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. March 2 2009
By Amy the Great - Published on Amazon.com
Wow. This book was absolutely amazing. I know it is only fiction, and based on the imagination of the author, but it HAD to have been God-inspired. So much of it quickened my spirit and helped me to "feel" the creation story and sense how God meant things to be and how much the fall of man changed things. I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series. CAN NOT WAIT. The story is just beautiful. Beautifully tragic, with a sense of hope.
