Rabbi Eric Walker is Senior Rabbi of Congregation Beth Hallel in Birmingham, Alabama. He was featured in a local ABC two-part television news special, "Matters of Faith." Beth Hallel was named "the fastest growing congregation of its kind, not just in Alabama, but in the nation." Rabbi Walker and his wife, Lora, have led numerous tours to Israel. He serves on the advisory board of the Messianic Jewish Israel Fund (MJIF), and is honorary executive of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA).
"Amazingly, the Biblical Tree of Life, which was so central to our earliest beginnings, has seldom been examined. Eric Walkers approach of parable and analogy help us to plumb the depth of its meaning."
Paul Liberman, President of Messianic Jewish Alliance of America and Author of The Fig Tree Blossoms
"Only a Messianic Rabbi who is flooded with Gods Spirit can teach the end-time understanding of the Torah. Feast on the heart of God as Rabbi Eric Walker unfolds this end-time revelation."
Sid Roth, Host of It's Supernatural! Television
richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Messianic Look at End Times Teaching of the TorahMay 19, 2012richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Messianic Rabbi Eric E. Walker introduces his book "Etz Chaim: the Tree of Life" with lessons from Genesis, Psalms, Jeremiah, as well as the gospels of Mark and John, and Revelation. He guides the reader through seven lessons learned from the "ground." These lessons include profound questions for personal consideration, beautiful illustrative artwork, practical exercises for application, and comprehensive end notes which lend themselves to further reading and additional study.
Walker provides practical, easy to understand instructions for abundant living from the Torah. The book is presented in the form of an inspired parable. The seven chapters are based on the seven aspects of the Tree of Life: The ground, the seed, the roots, the trunk, the branches, the leaves, and the fruit. Each chapter culminates with seven life-changing conclusions drawn from seven lessons, broken down into seven parts, with seven exercises at the end of each part.
Walker delivers a powerful message challenging the reader to a personal examination of their spiritual status as a Christian in a writing style that is simple yet profound. It is inspirational and motivational.
Etz Chaim: the Tree of Life is Biblically based, true to the scriptures, providing understanding, offering hope, while revealing the end times teaching of the Torah.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

What was your motivation behind this project? The Lord gave me a Parable and from that I preached 7 sermons. The response to the sermon series was so profound that we made a book out of it.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? People who heard the sermons said it enhanced their walk. They began to understand many of the teachings of the Bible in regards to seeds and fruit. They will gain a practical set of tools to better understand where they are in their relation with G-D and how they can improve it.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? The Lessons Learned from the Tree have become an integral part of my life. I see the Word differently now and my relationship with G-D and my family have improved.
