PHOENIX, AZ (PRWEB) May 26, 2006
Phoenix based international talk show host, Kevin Smith, has released his new book, Steeleye Media Network announced Friday (May 19, 2006).
Gods In The Garden is the product of nearly eight years of research, writing, and re-writing. It’s basic thesis is that Genesis simply does not tell the same creation story as is normally told by churches. Smith, a former international police officer, commented that he began researching the book before he was deployed to Kosovo, and began writing the book while he was serving in East Timor.
Writing in the foreword of the book, bestselling author Dr. Brooks Agnew said, “Kevin Smith has used his talent to bring you this landmark publication on the origin of mankind. Gods in the Garden is like pouring pure oxygen on an alcohol lamp. You’ll know it’s true by the way your mind and heart burn within you.”
“Why does the church story of creation keep losing in the public arena in a country where some 80% of the population claim to be Christian,” asks Smith. He says the reason is simple. “It is because they can clearly perceive the story doesn’t match observable facts. What’s more, the document provided as the basis for the creation story does not support that story,” claims Smith.
Gods In The Garden is not a book of theology. It is merely a very open review of the actual words of the Genesis account of creation. Smith says that although Genesis does tell a creation story, it is very different from the standard story told by most churches. “You really can’t expect reasonable people to believe the standard church story of creation when their own document—Genesis—does not support that story,” says Smith.
Far from being an attack on churches, Smith says that Gods In The Garden merely takes a focused look at the actual words of Genesis. “If reading what Genesis says is an affront to any church, what does that tell you? Theologians will hate this book, because it pretty much puts them on the sideline.”
Gods In The Garden is available online at http://www.kevinsmithshow.com. Smith is already scheduled to discuss the book on several radio talk shows around the country. He may be contacted for scheduling or public appearances at 800-318-1008.
