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.

A vivid and emotional descriptive of the Garden of Eden Dec 16 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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!

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.

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.

Amazing. March 2 2009
By Amy the Great - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
