Book Review: The Olive Tree
This book is beautiful! I have always loved the allegory of the olive tree, found in Jacob 5 of the Book of Mormon. But it is hard to follow without taking notes and having an understanding of basic tree care. Reading through this book, makes the scripture much easier to follow! It makes it more like a story.
The art work is beautiful and a great addition. I think olive trees are beautiful and I am glad to have the visual work to help with the imagery. I love the calligraphy. I do have to slow down to read it (since I don't read calligraphy very often), but it helps me focus more on the words and think of the meaning.
The Olive Tree is a beautiful book to have - one I would put on a coffee table. I look forward to sharing it with my daughters when they are older to help them understand this scripture. I'm sure now, my 3 year old daughter would love looking at the pictures and listening to me read it!
