Publisher's Description

Poets and the scriptures have often spoken of Jesus as the "lily of the valley" or the "rose of Sharon," and the Bible is filled with intriguing references to a wide variety of flora. But what did these plants look like? You'll find out, and learn much more as well in this fascinating follow-up volume to the popular "Learning From The Lizard."
"Stories Told Under The Sycamore Tree" examines 52 notable flowers, trees, fruits, and other plants in the Bible. Each lesson includes an informative description based on scientific research and scripture, a reflection on the plant's symbolism, and a prayer, along with superb color illustrations from award-winning nature artist Scott Patton.
These attention-getting, inspiring, and enriching messages are perfect for use with children -- there's a year's worth of fresh material. But they're not just for youngsters; they're also excellent for personal devotions and sermon preparation. "Stories Told Under The Sycamore Tree" is a visual and meditative feast that will give you a greater appreciation for the wonders of God's creation.
"Hahn's insights into various plants mentioned in the Bible will broaden people's understanding of this wonderful world the Lord has created for us to enjoy each and every day."
Ruth Stafford Peale
Chairman of the Board, "Guideposts"
"Stories Told Under The Sycamore Tree is a devotional examination and reflection upon some of the most interesting plants named in the Bible. It will delight and inspire all who seek God and God's truth. The excellent color drawings bring new insight to the setting in which biblical stories are told."
Reuben P. Job
Former bishop, Iowa Conference, United Methodist Church
Former editor, "The Upper Room"
"These short essays provide a splendid way to begin or end the day, and Stories Told Under The Sycamore Tree is a fine addition to the books of Christian devotion. The research is illuminating, and Scott Patton's excellent artwork contributes to the beauty of the volume."
Wayne Clymer
Former bishop, Minnesota and Iowa Conferences, United Methodist Church
Former president, Evangelical Theological Seminary

    After my friend Scott Patton had finished "Learning With the Lizard" he showed me some of his artwork for his next book. To be honest I loved the artwork but I had to ask him "Just how exactly are you and Sam going to write a devotional book about plants?" The devotional book I was referring to eventually became "Stories Under the Sycamore Tree" by Samuel J. Hahn and Scott Patton. The book is divided into nine sections each featuring plants which are referenced in the Bible. Each chapter begins with a plant as the subject, a Scriptural reference is given for the basis of the lesson, then the lesson about the plant is given, along with the plants correlation in the Bible, there is a lesson summary, then a prayer which follows to close the chapter.

    Our family has used this book for family devotions.

    This would make a great addition to any family library!
