  • By Don Legler
$14.99
($20.99)
Have you wondered about life after the events in the Book of Genesis took place? Are you interested in the early church and its growth? Do you like quests and intriguing plots? If so, The Garden Of Eden And Beyond is the book for you. Noah, Abram and others listened and responded when God spoke. Key elements of life B.C.E. shift to a drama on the world stage in 1000 A.D. as a contentious world emerges from the "Dark Ages." Sten, the shepherd son of a Viking father and an Arabic mother, finds an altarpiece that facilitates relationships with the Lord. Sten is forced to become a warrior in the Caliph's army; but he and his wife, Janna, become Christians and guiding lights in molding a better world. God's plan leads them to become role models in adventures through Byzantium, Mesopotamia, Norway, England, and the New World. This novel moves through time and space and, although fictitious, is replete with historical facts. Don Legler spent ten years as a Methodist minister serving small rural churches in Florida. With a M.Div. degree from Emory University and a M.Th. degree from Garrett Seminary, he authored over 500 sermons. Holding B.S., D.D.S., and Ph.D. degrees, Don had a professional career in dental education and research with over fifty professional and scientific publications. His travels and observations in Norway, Sweden, and Iraq provided the stimulus for writing this novel. He observed the roles these countries played in the spread of Christianity throughout history and was impressed to still see remnants of Christian churches among the ruins of ancient Babylon and Ur. Thus the stage was set in 1000 A.D. for this moving story of characters seeking to sustain their Christian faith and fulfill God's plan for their lives.
