About-

The stories of Jesus, placed in the context of the familiar and factual, are filled with metaphors that audiences can understand and appreciate. Metaphors not only inform and persuade, but also fire up readers' imaginations and get them involved as participants. Humans are primed to think and feel metaphorically, and so Garden of the Soul aims to metaphorically explore five landscapes that feature prominently in the Bible. Each metaphorical landscape throws light on an aspect of spiritual life. The bountiful garden speaks of growth, the flowing river calls for unceasing prayer, the raging sea mirrors the turbulence of a journey of faith, the barren desert transforms by emptying life's clutter, and the high mountain challenges readers to scale its peak to glimpse a transcendent vision of God. This book will inform, enrich, and challenge readers' spiritual lives throughout their journey from garden to mountain.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Mark Mah's winsome invitation to hurried, harassed, and preoccupied Christians of late modernity needs to be heard and embraced if we are going to enhance our friendship with God, deepen the inner wells of life, negotiate the contours and difficulties of life's journey, and live as signposts of the shalom of God."
--Charles Ringma, author of Hear the Ancient Wisdom
