The Beginning: Naados and His Kin embraces the characters and divine script as humanity, fresh from creator's hand, accept their likeness-image status. Join author Eddie Payne in a new refreshing telling of the old, old story. The newly made humans face a difficult decision. Their free choice and the potential to live forever in this new-born world nudge them forward to understand and experience their existence. Why one tree and not the other? Knowing is good, living is better but how can one be sure without knowing? But other created beings share their perfect world. As sovereigns over everything, how will their free choice impact those who share bounty from the hand of their creator? Enter Naados, a member of one of the animal species populating the perfect world but not sharing likeness-image qualities. Through his eyes, the tragic implications of that first choice are revealed, and the first imperfections of the world are perceived. Follow Naados and observe the process leading humans to exercise free choice. Feel the impact of disobedience. Follow the erring offspring in their increasing rebellion against their creator. Discover how Naados escapes judgment in order to tell his tale. Yearn, with Naados, for final restoration in this dynamic introduction to an ongoing cosmic drama played out by Giver and his creation. The best is yet to come. 'Eddie Payne has a lively imagination and a genuine love of the Lord. Everything he writes reflects both of these qualities in his life.' - Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, author of The Power of Positive Productivity
