And God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years,
and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth.” And it was so.
God made the two great lights – the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night – and the stars.
God set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth,
to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.
And God said “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so.
God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.” And it was so.
The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.
And God said, “Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so.
God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.

Eden: The Animals’ Parable
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.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
