Christ and His Garden unveils the experiential life of loving intimacy that transpires between Christ and His bride in dialogue form between a beginner in grace (Hannah) and a seasoned believer (Grandpa Jennings). Writing with a spiritual sensitivity that reflects the Song of Solomon, Nancy Offen covers the major spiritual dimensions of spiritual life: first love, recovered love, guarded love, tested love, and impassioned love. Christ and His Garden is reminiscent of some of the nineteenth-century female devotional writers, such as Anne Dutton, Elizabeth Bury, Mary Winslow and Ruth Bryan. With the Spirit's blessing, it will instruct and delight the soul of every believer who yearns for a closer life with the Lord Jesus, and will convict those who so easily live on without that intimacy.
