“Outside the Gates of Eden: A Case for Christian Awareness” is a book of poetry covering biblical, archaeological, and political history. “Outside the Gates of Eden: A Case for Christian Awareness” is the creation of published author, G. Wilson Boomhower, who was born in January 1950 as the second of six children: three boys and three girls. He was raised by devout Catholic working-class parents whose childhoods had been defined by the Great Depression. He had a large extended family, too; his mom was the youngest of six kids born to Austro-Hungarian immigrants, John and Julia Bodisch. They came through Ellis Island separately, around 1917. His father was the third of eleven children. The Boomhowers trace back to the arrival of Peter Stuyvesant whose ship docked in New Amsterdam (New York City) on May 11, 1647. Boomhower grew up in Geneva, Ohio surrounded by so many siblings and cousins (paternally and maternally) that he was never short of other kids with whom to play.

Boomhower shares, “I will forever cherish our family picnics . . . back in the day. We didn’t have much by today’s standards, but life was so sweet. I long for that kind of America. (The book) came about through eighteen years of trucking. It was time to sort things out in my life, so I lived like a monk with a bad case of mobility. A Bible was my only companion. Through it all, and even now, I’ve been looking for the providential thread of God’s action in my life and in my world. I have found it! Please, join me for the trip”.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, G. Wilson Boomhower’s new book is delightful and stimulating as history is beautifully woven throughout intricate poems.

This book is prose, poetry, and prayers written with no other purpose in mind than to provoke thought, self-evaluation, and a recognition of history as the greatest teacher any man ever had. His journey took him through forty-eight states and half of Canada, then four years of on-again, off-again chemotherapy until eventually the liver disease that threatened to kill him was cured.
