If you only read one book of this type--Christian interpretation/exhortation--read this one. Written twenty-five years ago, it has a fresh message for today.

Joyner's allegory of the two trees in the Garden of Eden is an apt frame for explaining much of the Old Testament in terms of the New in an engaging, meaningful way.

On second reading: Found a few more nuggets, but also a few lumps of coal. Amazing what you miss--or misunderstand--the first time through--fiction or non-fiction. Still five st

This was a pretty good book. Presented in a long sermon format, it expounds upon the revelation that God has given the author about the tree of knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life. I was inspired, and educated, and enlightened. I can't think of any specific thing I brought away from reading this book besides the fact that my life should be consumed and flow out of Jesus, and not out of doctrine itself.

omg...what a wonderful book! there were two trees...the tree of knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life...do you want eternal life? Adam and Eve selected the other one and it became their downfall...and this decision has been with us throughout our human history...but something...ehhhh...someone came down from heaven to show us the way...

This is a book we are using in a Bible study group. It is about the conflict of the tree of life and living in the kingdom of God or not living it. It is a book for the heart.

Indsigtsgivende og forståelsesfremmende undervisning "af Rick Joyner" om henholdsvis Kain og Abels gøren.
En helt anden tone og på et helt andet pland, ind hvad vi er vant til, fra hans helt fantastiske serie om den sidste prøve etc.
Insight Qualifying and understanding education intervention "by Rick Joyner" respectively Cain and Abel comings.

This is by far one of my favorite books. It challenges our western mindset that pursues knowledge above all else. It is Rick's first book, but I still consider it to be his best. He goes to the root of everything in this book.

deep as a water, this a thought provoking, incredible book, it reaches to the heavens with strong roots and truths that when applied are a propellant for spiritual growth, for becoming wine . . .

Gave me a new understanding of the two trees and how the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil really caused the great divorce between God and man.

I liked it. I loved the comparisons of the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. And how it shows up in our lives alot. Not just in the book of Genesis.

I know of no one who better explains the choices we have to make, how we make them, how others make them, and their ultimate consequences.

Amazing insight into the reality that anything "of" the tree of Good & Evil is less that God's design for us, found ONLY in the Tree of Life. If we live by the tree of knowledge of Good & Evil, believing that "good" is "God" then we are deceived.
