Under the Broomtree

Product Description
The nurturing of a devoted parent, the kindness of a closest friend, and the loving heart of an often-misunderstood Father...all were the things Elijah, the greatest prophet of the Old Testament, found in his weakest moment when lying under a broom tree. Though he'd performed extraordinary miracles and offered faith-filled prayers, anxiety and depression drove him to a place where he asked God to end his life. Elijah's story was much like our own because he was an ordinary person, just like you and me.

  • Discover God's extraordinary, sustaining love that is specifically for you.
  • Find the answer to what is at the core of today's identity issues.
  • Conquer difficulty in forgiving others.
  • Learn to love the way God uniquely made you, flaws and all.

Written by a board-certified pediatrician with almost 20 years of clinical experience, Under The Broom Tree explores the mental health epidemic of this generation with fearless faith, openhearted honesty, and refreshing transparency.

What Others Say About This Book:

B.E. Mathews deftly spins a wonderful and thought-provoking brief story that bridges the Old Testament with the modern day world, showing once again that the Bible and God's teachings transcend time and societal values. Under the Broom Tree will have you re-examine your faith and everything you thought to be true with insightful and delicious recountings of a woman coming to age in a culture that misplaces its values of what true beauty are.
