Theres a strong biblical connection between people and trees. They both come from dirt. Theyre both told to bear fruit. In fact, arboreal language is so often applied to humans that its easy to miss, whether we're talking about family trees, passing along our seed, cutting someone off like a branch, being rooted to a place, or bearing the fruit of the Spirit. Its hard to deny that trees mean something, theologically speaking.
This book is in many ways a memoir, but its also an attempt to wake up the reader to the glory of God shining through his creation.
One of the first commands to Adam and Eve was to "work and keep" the garden. Award-winning author and songwriter Andrew Peterson, being as honest as possible, shares a story of childhood, grief, redemption, and peace, by walking through a forest of memories: "I trust that by telling my story, youll encounter yours. Hopefully, like me, youll see that the God of the Garden is and has always been present, working and keeping what he loves."
Sometimes he plants, sometimes he prunes, but in his goodness he intends to reap a harvest of righteousness.
He and Jamie have been married for twenty-six years, with three grown children and two brand new daughters-in-lawall of whom have planted memories deep in the soil of their acreage in Nashville. In his spare time, Andrew keeps bees, builds stone walls, gardens, draws, and waxes poetic about footpaths.
