BOOK EXPLORES TRANSFORMATION
ACU PRESS NEWS RELEASE
Leafwood Publishers, an imprint of ACU Press, just released a new book by Shane J. Wood titled Between Two Trees: Our Transformation From Death to Life.
Wood and his family are living in Joplin, Missouri, where he is professor of New Testament Studies and the Associate Academic Dean at Ozark Christian College.
Wood explains the premise of his book as follows:
“The problem of Eden is much worse than you thought, but the solution is much better than you could have ever imagined.
Life isn’t lived under Eden’s tree of life or beneath the healing leaves of the tree in the new Jerusalem. It is lived between them. And between these two trees, life is hard. In spite of this reality, Between Two Trees will challenge you to embrace hope, love, and the beauty of reconciliation at the true tree of life: the cross of Calvary.
By exploring the problem of Eden and the power of the cross, Shane Wood calls us to walk on a path to transformation, a path to union with God. The book’s journey ends under the shade of the tree of life in the New Jerusalem with God’s unfinished creation now complete. Yes, Eden, but more importantly, you. The unfinished creation in us.”
