Since prehistoric times, the Garden of the Gods has been a source of fascination. This geologic formation in Colorado Springs was a seasonal camping site and source of spiritual significance for Ute Indians. Later, scientists studied the formation and found evidence of dinosaurs, prehistoric cultures, and unusual biological associations. Artists, writers, and photographers have been inspired by the beauty of this geologic wonder, and tourists and entrepreneurs once left their marks on the rocks. Through the efforts of Gen. William Jackson Palmer and Charles Elliot Perkins, the park became a reality and was given to the city of Colorado Springs. Today, the Garden of the Gods draws 1.7 million visitors per year, who bicycle, run, ride horses, enjoy hiking, go rock climbing, and savor the natural beauty of the park.

The Garden of Eden Myth

Its Pre-Biblical Origin in Mesopotamian Myths

Scholarly proposals are presented for the pre-biblical origin in Mesopotamian myths of the Garden of Eden story. Some Liberal PhD scholars (1854-2010) embracing an Anthropological viewpoint have proposed that the Hebrews have recast earlier motifs appearing in Mesopotamian myths. Eden's garden is understood to be a recast of the gods' city-gardens in the Sumerian Edin, the floodplain of Lower Mesopotamia. It is understood that the Hebrews in the book of Genesis are refuting the Mesopotamian account of why Man was created and his relationship with his Creators (the gods and goddesses). They deny that Man is a sinner and rebel because he was made in the image of gods and goddesses who were themselves sinners and rebels, who made man to be their agricultural slave to grow and harvest their food and feed it to them in temple sacrifices thereby ending the need of the gods to toil for their food in the city-gardens of Edin in ancient Sumer.

Are you tired of 'church as usual?' Do you believe that there is more to God than what you've been taught in most churches? Do you believe that there is more to 'Christian life' than what we are living? In Back to the Garden, you will discover that Jesus wants to be a part of everything you do. You can do what He did, have what He had, and be like He was! Think about it: wouldn't it be great to walk in the authority that Jesus had when He walked on earth. This book is THE discipleship training manual that ALL believers should have in their library, car, purse, and office. It is your guide to understanding your identity, value, and purpose in the Kingdom of God. The best part is that once you understand these things, it is your 'how-to' guide to living as a Christian. Most Christians receive salvation and wonder, 'what's next?' This book illustrates the Kingdom of God as it was designed to be when the Garden of Eden was created. It is time that we GET OFF OF OUR PEWS, and be REAL Christians! Jesus promised you abundant life. He's waiting to show it to you. . . Get ready -- you are about to be amazed at what you've been missing!
