Wipf and Stock Publishers, 8 ian. 2014 - 134 pagini
Rolland Hein has woven together two of his passions--poetry and growing things--in a book that serves as both a Christian devotional and a gardening primer. The garden provides so many illustrations for life and growth for us as spiritual persons. Hein's illustrations are full of poignant quotes from such great poets as Simone Weil, Wiiliam Blake, Emily Dickinson, and John Updike. This book will serve as a tremendous resource for both seasoned and first-time gardeners. Included are a bibliography and recommended sources for gardening supplies.
