The Garden at the Edge of Beyond by Michael Phillips
A man lies down for a normal night of sleep and inexplicably awakens to find himself in a surreal garden bursting with fantastic aromas and colors. A succession of "tour guides" come and go, helping him to interpret the landscape's fragrant messages, each one a clue on the journey to discover his true Self, and, ultimately, the Creator of the Country Beyond. This book by famed author, Michael Phillips (over 7 million books sold), is the first of three spiritual fantasies, the second being Hell and Beyond, followed by Heaven and Beyond. In each book, the reader is challenged to set aside preconceived notions of death, heaven and hell, and enter into regions beyond the human imagination, worlds filled with surprise and discovery, fresh hope and infinite love.
