Heaven To Eden, a new philosophical, dramatic epic by Fikre Tolossa (professor of humanities) released and available at amazon.com
Heaven to Eden is a dramatic epic in rhyming verse in the tradition of three of the world’s best poets– Dante, Milton, and Goethe. It reveals why God granted life, depicts the meaning of living, the reason for existence, the origin and destination of souls, the formation of the universe, the creation, rebellion, and fall of angels and humans, the existence of other worlds and UFOs, as well as free will and the lack of it. It reveals how God created the first human beings in Ethiopia around the rivers Ghion and today’s Wabishebele. It takes place eons ago when God was alone in a beautiful, but unpopulated heaven. The book is an enjoyable read as well as adaptable for the stage, film, and opera. It is adorned with a musical language that speaks to the soul.
“As I read the pages, I was transported to a special realm. In all the books I have read, plays, poems, and prose works of great writers, I was never transported this way to hear the plans and discussions of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit… I could not talk for a while after reading these pages …Lives will change through this writing.” – Flora Williams, poet, rabbi, TV host.
