About The Parables · Volume I Book:
Meet Henry Johnson …
Henry is a regular guy in his forties who is truly living the American Dream. He is a loving family man and successful business owner. He and his wife Helen just bought a new home and the future looks bright. However, there is something missing from Henry’s life. Actually, the most important thing in the world is missing—the hope of eternal life.
Enter Jerry, Henry’s new next door neighbor. Jerry is a committed follower of Jesus Christ. As Henry and Jerry get to know each other, their friendship grows, despite their spiritual differences. While Henry is totally turned-off by religion, Jerry loves the Lord with all his heart. Henry soon finds himself intrigued by Jerry’s powerful faith, so they make an agreement to examine the basic beliefs of the Christian faith together.
Join author Wade J. Carey as he weaves together a unique narrative of twelve interconnected parables centered on the fundamentals of faith in Jesus Christ. By using a quick-moving story and an abundance of scripture, Garden of Life: a parable about faith spotlights several essential concepts critical to understanding biblical Christianity.
Why does evil exist? What separates us from God? What would it be like to know who Jesus Christ really is—without the hindrance of religion or ceremony? What is true faith? These questions and more are answered in this first installment of the new Parables series.
My Review Of This Parable About Faith Book:
Once in a while, I read a book that moves me both physically and spiritually. Well, I just finished such a read. This awesome book titled, Garden of Life: a parable about faith is written by a brilliant storyteller, Wade Carey. This simple yet powerful story involves a man and his family, new to the neighborhood, and a quiet and unassuming handyman who lives next door. This handyman changes the paths of his new neighbors’ spiritual lives. The father, Henry struggles with his spiritual journey and the handyman mentors him through home repairs, as well as, Biblical guidance.
This awesome book completely engrossed all my attention. The way the author developed the characters namely Jerry the mentor and the struggling apprentice, Henry was brilliant. I just love the way that book was written in Q and A style. A progressive explanation of the Bible and God’s will. This book was very powerful to me which helped my understanding and retention of scripture. I really appreciate the slow explanations and examples backed by Biblical truth. Overall, an awesome, inspiring, and well-written story with great characters, editing, and structure. I am looking forward to reading volume II. Obviously, this author is talented and greatly blessed. I must thank him for this educational and inspiring book.
