One thought on “The Divine Romance

  1. Lynne Stringer

    I don t know if Gene Edwards deliberately took theological liberties in this book in the name of allegory or if he agrees with all the points he seems to make in its pages I guess I could have misinterpreted things, but the trouble with making allegory out of scripture is that it can be taken the wrong way, and that s dangerous when you re dealing with things of God.From the first few pages, This book seems to suggest that to be made in the image of God equates with being male This is certainly [...]

  2. Colleen

    This is a work of fiction that tells the story from God s perspective From the very beginning when God created all that is, he longed to create a counterpart for himself because He was lonely He created man i.e adam , in his image, but soon man was lonely and asked for a counterpart, which God made for him i.e Eve God was still lonely.Humanity fell from Grace but God still persued them to have a relationship with them, but after repeated failures on humanity s part to come back to God and connec [...]

    I m really debating whether this book deserves one star or two I am the type who gives one stars for books that are morally bankrupt, and this book isn t However, Edwards writing style is so painful to read, and so drawn out that I had to force myself to finish this book Also, his theology seems way off God created us because he was lonely Like so lonely he was depressed In fact, I am really turned off by the picture of God in this book He comes across as needy, lonely, depressed, and forlorn is [...]

  4. Frank

    As a novel this is a great book, but one that should not be taken out of the novel realm The reader must not take the writing to represent the Christian God as revealed in Scripture Nor the imagine of Angels to be taken as real nor what they say I love his idea of Divine Romance and think there is a lot to be learned from the author The famous poem The Hound of Heaven also talks of this Divine Romance However one must not be confused in thinking what is written in this book is Scripturally corre [...]

  5. Jewell Drury

    This is a fiction book which shares the love story of a God with his people but closer than that His love story with me.The story unravels beautifully like a play before your eyes as you get to see and hear conversations between Angels , of people through the ages as you catch a glimpse of Gods heart through the centuries This is the best love story ever written in my view and it will compel you to the very heart of God as you become undone by his love for you.

  6. Jake

    Some really classy writing, but the premise of a lonely God looking for a counterpart, takes the imagery of Christ and the Church to a perilous extreme The end result is a colossally unedifying read.

  7. Jerry

    This book was mostly just a big mess I bought it at a garage sale, and I still feel like I wasted my money.

  8. Todd Coburn

    Beautiful Intimate Romantic These words spring to mind as the author paints the heart of God as it could be In this lovely book, the author tells the story of God and of mankind, starting with creation and culminating with the Church being reunited with Jesus Christ when she is presented to Him as His bride Yet Gene s perspective is unique in that his focus is on God s yearning for a love relationship and on His loving actions in crafting this relationship by giving up of Himself Gene artfully t [...]

    I first read this book in 1987 I was 13 years old This is the book that made me want to start writing Fantasy fiction and Christian fantasy fiction if I could swing it in the first place Yes, some things in here are theologically and hermeneutically questionable Does this make it any less a great story one that introduces those that don t know to our Great Lover s great heart for them No The theological and interpretive errors made in this book can be corrected with time and patience, when worki [...]

    This was not my first choice for reading being the action or fantasy time of reader like the Lord of the Rings, but through my wife s persistance I decided to read it twice It change my life and view of why we were created Mr Edwards definitely has some inspired info going on in this book you won t want to miss out on this revelation.

  11. Amy

    Gene Edwards has such insight and revelation into the mysteries of God and such a poetic, yet clear and concise way of bringing them to the page I love the imagination mixed with truth in this story of the ultimate love of God for me His Bride.

  14. Luke Jones

    The opening was great Gene Edwards imagining of the Garden of Eden was really stunning The rest of the book, however, didn t seem all that original.

  15. Josh

    I read this book it was purchased for me from a friend who thought it would positively influence one of the classes I teach I appreciated the different perspective presentation of the Metanarrative that is God s love story.

  16. April Kyle

    Beautiful I ve now read all three of these by Gene Edwards I don t always agree with some of the implied theology, but the word pictures are stirring and beyond imagination.

  17. Diana Muresan

    This book is poetical and almost allegorical, drawing insight into the deeper and heartfelt parts of Christianity.

  18. Christopher Armstrong

    Edit Ok, at first I gave this book a two star review My main issue with the book was how it relates God s perspectives before creation and after the end times Unfortunately, there isn t a lot mentioned on this in the Bible so the author had to take some liberties I increased the rating because disputed not agreeing with those perspectives completely they have been in my head since reading this book, in a good way I am seeing a divine romance in how God speaks to me and how my heart longs for Him [...]

  19. Christopher Kanas

    It takes me awhile to get into the prose of Gene Edwards I must admit, when it comes to reading Christian based material I am usually direct myself to non fiction, philosophical material but I was recommended Edwards The Tale of Three Kings and enjoyed that, and that book directed to this And, again, I find myself appreciating Edwards perspective on this celestial and cosmological story The book is not without some faults Although it is fairly short, it could be condensed even as I found some [...]

  20. Caryl

    WOW I loved this allegorical story How I long for the day when I am united with my Lord I highly recommend this book.

    I had a very fun time reading this It was enjoyableThis is about the angels seeing how the world was created straight through to the death and resurrection of Jesus It was neat seeing it from a different perspective Gene Edwards is an awesome author and I have enjoyed two of his other books and I was really excited to read this one His storytelling is really entertaining and hooks me from the start His writing is very gripping and pulls you to read what he writes about.I love the story of the de [...]

  23. Julie

    I thoroughly enjoyed this love story and would highly recommend it It fictionally portrays how God wants our WHOLE heart, mind and soul in a relationship with Him From Scripture we know that God is perfect and complete in every way and could not be missing anything However, He did choose to create man for His enjoyment and He delights in us We cannot really comprehend that kind of love, so I think this portrayal is stimulating food for creativity.The cross and crucifixion part of the story was g [...]

    The Divine Romance is awesome It s a story based on the reality of spirit life about the creation and God s purpose for the human being from before the world was made It illuminates a most awesome description of the bride of the Lord Jesus Christ and God s romantic passion for her The reader is drawn into a rich encounter with Christ, because Gene Edwards used such imagination which is sparked by a deep love for Jesus It paints an incredible picture for the believer that they might understand ho [...]
