WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Through exceptional storytelling, Dr. Black’s book, Redemption: A Tale of Two Gardens seamlessly weaves a modern-day family tragedy into a Biblical narrative and remarkably unites them together. Set in the picturesque milieu of two well-known Gardens, Eden and Gethsemane, his graphic and descriptive contemporary writing style makes for inspired reading. He writes from a Christian worldview but in language that reaches the broadest main street readership. Dr. Black’s creative reflections give new insights and meaning to an old story that will leave you saying, “I never saw it that way before.” Very Refreshing!
