3.5 stars.

I found first four chapters of the book, which deal with the parable of the sower, to be very insightful. Definitely some food for thought there.

The second part of the book deals with the "fruits of the Spirit" as described in Galatians. Each chapter dealing with a specific fruit. This part was somewhat dissapointing. Part of this was because there was so much repition when describing these fruits. Too many descriptions were repeated in each new chapter, making the descriptions for Lo

This book was excellent, excellent, excellent! It is easy to read and is so captivating and full of wisdom and insight, that you can't and don't really want to put it down.

The author goes into excellent detail describing the process of gardening and it's not boring but instead paints a clear and concise picture of the correlation between the laboring Gardener who tenderly loves, cares for and strenuous toils and labors in the soil in which he intends to sow, hoping to produce a great crop, paral

Discovered this Author, W. Phillip Keller,in my quest to learn how to spiritually grow as a child of God. I was just a babe in Christ at this time, just coming out of a 25 year cultist type of religion and finding there was a clear difference between "religion" and "relationship" with the Father.

Learn what it really means when He says that He will "heal your land." This book will change the way you read the Bible as it opens up what Jesus was referring to in the parables concerning the different types of soil and gardening. Stony, thorny, hard-packed ground needs constant attention from the Gardener and much work before it becomes fertile.

This is a great book!

A thoughtful look at the 9 fruits of the Spirit from Galatians, preceded by a tie-in to Jesus' parable of the sower. Keller brings his keen insight into Christian action and character in this book, giving the reader clear and practical perspectives for life. Keller's writing has an easy style and is in some places alliterative. I highly recommend this book!
