I will liken thee, O house of Israel, to a tame olive tree . . .

Craft your conduit to heaven as you examine the olive tree parable more closely. This unique book will enhance your spiritual understanding with a one-of-a-kind experience that takes you beyond the story.

Through artwork, adapted text, and hand-worked calligraphy, you’ll see each symbol as you never have before and feel the Savior’s love each time He cares for His trees.

The branches, the fruit, the servants, the graftings—each stands in place of something with larger meaning. The story of the olive tree isn’t just a parable. It’s the story of humanity.
