Book Recommendations

Recently read two wonderful books. The first is The First Gardener  by Denise Hildreth Jones published by Tyndale House. It is one of the most moving novels on grief that I’ve ever read. In the story the governor of Tennessee and his wife, Mac, lose their only child in a car accident. She is only five, and Mac, who was driving, is consumed with guilt as well as terrible sorrow. The gardener at the governor’s mansion, Jeremiah, a wise and godly man is instrumental in helping her heal.

The other is Joshua and the Children by Joseph F. Girzone published by Macmillan Publishing. The author is a retired priest who for health reasons gave up the active priesthood and began to write. His first book Joshua tells the story of a quiet, unassuming man who the reader eventually recognizes is Yeshua. This modern retelling of the gospel became a best seller. The sequel portrays Joshua’s special love for children.
