In this collection of uplifting meditations, Orthodox theologian Vigen Guroian finds in gardening our most concrete connection with life and God's gracious giving.

Whether read for its practical insights into gardening or for its poignant reflections on the life of faith, Inheriting Paradise offers a compelling entry into Christian spirituality.
