The Tree of Life is an introduction to God's own word about life. It includes three hundred and sixty-five individual passages selected from six books in the Old Testament: Job, Psalm, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs and Lamentations-one passage for each day of the calendar year. Some of the passages are long (though never longer than a page); some are short. Some passages are inspirational, while others are disquieting. Some of the verses are highly poetic and beautiiful, while others are practical and designed for everyday living. Most of the verses are over three thousand years old, yet each is startlingly relevant for contemporary men.The verses in this book affirm God's presence in creation and the world he created. Some of the verses indicate that there can be knowledge apart from God, but there cannot be wisdom, since God is the author of life and wisdom. Some verses reveal that man can live apart from God, but they also point to the real dangers of such a life. It is clear from many passages that love flows from God to us and, if we are in a right relationship with God, love flows through us to our families, friends and neighbors. Ultimately, we discover that God created us for his purposes. The Tree of Life is offered to the reader as an introduction to daily biblical reading.
