The Garden at the Edge of Beyond
I just finished reading the book "The Garden at the Edge of Beyond" by Michael Phillips. It's a fiction story of a man who dies and arrives at the Garden at the Edge of Beyond. What I liked about this book is that it caused me to pause and consider some of the deeper issues of life...of purpose, of God's will, of a journey that only begins here on Earth, how he pointed out "It is towards childhood that we are all growing." It was a short, quick read, and yet it's words will long be pondered as I consider this gift of my life that I have been given.
