"Each of us is a distinct flower or tree in the spiritual garden of God--precious, each for our own sake, in the eyes of Him who is even now making us.

I've read MacDonald's fiction before, but this is not fiction--theology at its best! What a master he is! It isn't an easy read. His syntax is a bit convoluted, but his ideas are worth the bother of working out what he means.

Reading this is almost like reading the Gospel of John; the words are simple, the insights profound. It requires a slow contemplative read. Thanks to Michael Philips who translated and explicated it.

I liked the format. The original and the more readable version in the next chapter. Very deep. A little too deep for me and thus three stars rather than four.
