Eden: The Animals’ Parable

By Keith Korman

In Eden: The Animals’ Parable, you will experience the Gospels in a way you never imagined. You will travel with Jesus and his disciples in the Holy Land and see everything from the eyes of the animals. There is a wise old donkey, innocent lambs, legions of curious field mice, and an intrepid, loyal dog named Eden.


This book is a very interesting look at the Gospels. Not a bird’s eye view, but rather a view from the animals.

What if Jesus had a dog who followed Him from the carpenter’s shop to the cross? What might that pet, along with a few other animals, be thinking along the way?

This is a beautiful retelling of the story that changed the world. I have to admit that I shed a few tears towards the end. This book will touch your heart.

Thank you, Mr. Korman, for this very special book. Thank you, Ms Parks, for your illustrations.

Keith Korman is a literary agent and novelist. Over the years he has represented many nationally-known writers of fiction and non-fiction at his family’s literary agency, Raines & Raines. The idea for Eden first came to him as a child when he saw the little calf jump across the stable in the prelude to William Wyler’s Ben Hur. And he’s been thinking about it ever since.

Illustrator Lisa Paris started painting late in life. She lives in a log cabin in the woods surrounded by all manner of critters. And a husband. This is her first book.
