Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this literary gem Vigen Guroian chronicles not merely the changing seasons but the course of his own life as he and his family move from Maryland to a new home near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Leaving the old garden behind and cultivating another garden become an emblem of our journey through life, marked as it is by both bitter losses and sweet new blessings. <P>While deeply personal, "The Fragrance of God" vividly unfolds the great biblical themes of the grandeur of God's creation, the senses as "paths" to experiencing God, and the garden as a "place" of birth, death, and renewal. <P>Laced throughout with quotations from Guroian's beloved church fathers and replete with theological reflection, "The Fragrance of God" will lead readers down a path of deeper insight into the creation and the Creator.

Synopsis:

The garden is a personal place of retreat and delight and labor for many people. Gardening helps us collect ourselves, much as praying does. For rich and poor — it makes no difference — a garden is a place where body and soul are in harmony.

The tilling of fresh earth; the sowing of seeds; the harvesting of rhubarb and roses, dillweed and daffodils — Guroian finds in the garden our most concrete connection with life and God’s gracious giving. His personal reflections on this connection offer a compelling entry into Christian spirituality.
