Worth Reading Over and Over Aug 14, 2006
This is an awesome book that extends the eye of the Word into revelational knowledge.
First rate! Jul 12, 2006
This is quite an extraordinary book! The author succeeded quite well in his imaginative but Biblical attempt to tell the story of our God - from creation onward. Though there are inevitable questions left unanswered & perhaps minor disagreement with the author's viewpoint, he seems definitely guided at least in part by revelation from God's Holy Spirit & shows great skill in his writing about a difficult subject. The only argument that I have with the book that kept me from giving it 5 stars is the author's failure to incorporate a conception of the Trinity into his story. His viewpoint seems closer to "Jesus Only" theology - but that does not spoil what is truthfully a very inspiring book!
The Divine Romance Apr 27, 2006
The best Gene Edwards book so far. This book is a unique view of God's plan for earth through angels' eyes. Edwards uses word pictures that beautifully amplify that plan. Another must read book by Edwards is, A Tale of Three Kings.
I love this book! May 13, 2005
I was given this book for my birthday, and it's become one of my favorites. The only thing I have to do is not take everything as literal. The author does use imagination which makes for a great fictional read, however, if you take everything as fact, you may end up off in the deep end. All that aside, this book is very inspirational and I highly recommend it.
Not sure if I love it or hate it Oct 28, 2004
This is the hardest of Edwards books to rate that I have read. I alternately hated it and would want to throw the book away and loved it for the insipation it was giving me. It is poetry in the sense that it uses images to move your emotions. I have read about 5 of Edwards books. He is great at getting you to think differently about the Christian Life and how things could (and often should) be different. However, he often takes what would charitably be called "poetic license" when he uses the Bible to support his ideas. In this book, he took the most poetic lisence of all, even changing the timing in the creation story to move Eve to day 8. Since it is a poetic book, some poetic license seems OK, but it would often drive me crazy. many of the ideas are hard, so even a couple of months later I am not sure if I loved the book or hated it.
