In the Year of Grace and The Enclosed Garden

The great sadness is that rather than follow these impulses, our fractured hearts insist on manipulating them; thereby, a grace is lost. The graveyard for these wasted graces must be vast indeed. And what tears God must shed over the ...

The poetry has been composed over most of my adult life. The novel came to me in the most vivid dream of my life back in 1978. In the dream, I’d written a work that attempted to undo Stendahl’s Le Rouge et Le Noir by portraying a man’s journey from dissolute to Christian.

The earth is the gardener’s canvas; the arrangement, care, and cultivation of all the elements in the garden constitute the gardener’s medium, the gardener’s art form. All art begins with inspiration, the breathing in of ideas, visions, and energy from the Master Creator of the universe. When we come to the garden, we offer our talents and present our willingness to engage in this hard but satisfying work. Then we wait in expectation for that inspiration—for how we should garden, and how we should live. Based on wisdom learned while cultivating her own garden, Garden Graces is Janice Elsheimer’s hope and help for growing things. Filled with practical insights, reliable gardening information, and Bible-based truths, this resource will offer readers gardening tips alongside metaphors for life that will help them cultivate their gardens-and their spiritual journey.For those who find themselves pursuing the perfect bulb or pulling the persistent weed, Elsheimer’s charm and grace in the garden will help you recognize that nowhere else do we experience the oneness between the Creator and creation as intimately as we do in the garden.

Elizabeth's story is like that of a garden left untended for too long, with weeds as bounteous as blossoms and stone walkways buried beneath tangled vines and daffodils. Beauty to be found, though amidst much neglect. When betrayal strikes at the heart of her very existence, Elizabeth Landis retraces the path of her life and her marriage, discovering along the way memories both painful to the touch and a joy to embrace. Pruning the garden of her life requires an honesty new to Elizabeth, but offers the promise of mercy...and perhaps even a grace to bestow.

The Spirit of the Soil challenges environmentalists to think more deeply and creatively about agriculture. Paul B. Thompson identifies four `worldviews' which tackle agricultural ethics according to different philosophical priorities; productionism, stewardship, economics and holism. He examines current issues such as the use of pesticides and biotechnology from these ethical perspectives. This book achieves an open-ended account of sustainability designed to minimise hubris and help us to recapture the spirit of the soil.

From the earliest of times people have sought to grow and nurture plants in a garden area. Gardens and Gardeners of the Ancient World traces the beginning of gardening and garden history, from Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, to the Minoans and Mycenaeans, Greeks, Etruscans and Romans, through Byzantine, Islamic and Persian gardens right up to the Middle Ages. It shows how gardens in each period were designed and cultivated. Evidence for garden art and horticulture is gathered from surviving examples of ancient art, literature, archaeology, actual period gardens that have survived the centuries and the wealth of garden myths associated with certain plants. These sources bring ancient gardens and their gardeners back to life, and provide information on which plants were chosen as garden worthy, their setting and the design and appearance of ancient gardens. Deities associated with aspects of gardens and the garden's fertility are featured - everyone wanted a fertile garden. Different forms of public and domestic gardens are explored, and the features that you would find there; whether paths, pools, arbors and arches, seating or decorative sculpture. The ideal garden could be like the Greek groves of the Academy in Athens, a garden so fine that it was comparable with that of the mythical king Alcinoos, the paradise contemplated by the Islamic world, or a personal version of a garden of Eden that Early Christians could create for themselves or in the forecourt of their churches. In general books on garden history cover all periods up to the present, often placing all ancient gardens in one chapter at the beginning. But there is so much of interest to be found in these early millennia. Generously illustrated with 150 images, with plant lists for each period, this is essential reading for everyone interested in garden history and ancient societies.
