The eternal fruitSmall seed, leafy tree. "The Eternal Fruit" should be digested, not just read. In his newest offering, the prolific Christian author, Dr. Dario Silva-Silva, analyzes the mystery of multiplication: from the seed to a tree, from a tree to the forest; the embryo that develops into a man, and the men who develop a community. Using his characteristic literary-theological writing style, the author describes the process, starting with the tree planted by the river in Psalm 1, through the planting of the trees of righteousness in Isaiah. He refers to many symbols well known to evangelicals, including the mustard seed, the parable of the sower's seed, the wheat and tares, the barren fig tree, spring planting and harvest time, etc. He concludes with a focus on the fruit of the Holy Spirit as the evidence of a Spirit-filled life. "The Eternal Fruit" is a book to be lived, not just read.
