Faith and Trees!!

In the book Reforesting Faith: What Trees Teach us About the Nature of God and His Love for us, by Matthew Sleeth, was a fascinating book.  I really was not sure what to expect when I was asked about reviewing this book.  Matthew Sleeth was an atheist, a man who had no need for God, but ultimately came to faith and his love for nature, especially trees led to this study and book.

Sleeth uncovers the hidden language of trees as we learn more about the nature of trees and their relation to biblical characters and our lives.  He reminds us that the Bible speaks of trees from the first chapter of the Bible to the last chapter of the Bible.  Sleeth explains why the Bible mentions them more than any other creation except people.  He shares his love for trees and their meaning and how that should make a difference in our lives as well.

Overall, this was a very good and interesting book.

I received this book from Waterbrook / Multnomah books in exchange for an honest review.
