A Garden of Love

"A Garden of Love" by Thomas B. Clarke is part picture book, part plant and flower description, and part Bible verse. At first, you wouldn't expect these three parts to form a coherent book, but somehow it works for this book. In these pages, Clarke ties in beautiful pictures of flowers, and connects each with a different Biblical principle. He gives us a description of the flowers that makes you feel like you are standing in a meadow, looking at them firsthand. He connects the flowers with principles such as obedience, love, joy, patience, and kindness. This is also connected with specific Bible verses to reinforce that particular principle. I found this to be such a unique way to present Biblical wisdom, and really enjoyed it. The book is larger than a typical paperback, and each flower has about two pages dedicated to it, which would make this easy to read as a devotional, as well. This would make a wonderful Mother's Day gift, in my opinion. I really enjoyed it, and would recommend it.
