Quick Overview:

The story of our fall and redemption is revealed in this moving series of meditations, leading us from the garden of Eden to the New Jerusalem, from Genesis to Revelation. The chapters---connected by a theme of wood, of trees, of the cross of Christ---use references ranging from biblical passages to masterpieces of Russian literature.
 
How can we come to understand more fully our own story of sin and redemption? This beautiful series of meditations addresses that need. Each chapter moves us one step along the path, and we’re also guided by the author’s metaphors of wood, trees, and the cross of Christ as we travel. We start in the garden of Eden, and end at the Tree of Life in the New Jerusalem. Along the way, we encounter biblical passages, pictures by Rembrandt, and insights from such great works of Russian literature as “A Tree Falls in Siberia” as the author brings important questions to our attention. John Arnold has created a series of contemplative readings that will remain with the reader long after reading them.
Contributor John Arnold , Foreword by Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
