This is book one of the trilogy, The Promise Series. Dr. Robert Wetmore portrays life before the fall realistically, bringing imagination and doctrine together. I cried when I read through the part where Adam and Eve fell. He brings the Bible to life so that we can experience what devastation occurred after the fall and beyond. Truly an amazing read!
The Promise Series Book 1: The Two Trees by Robert Wetmore
The Two Trees tells the beginning of the story, from the moment Eve opened her eyes to the point when she buried Adam over nine hundred years later. The first half starts quietly in the perfect Garden of Eden and builds in tension until the world is changed forever. The second half follows Adam, Eve and their children as they learn to deal with insurmountable challenges which lead to death and terrible grief. Yet they also learn the promise of a Coming One, who will deliver them from sin.
Don’t forget to look for The Two Trees Bible Study Lapbook that is available for Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers.
