The Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil disappeared after Genesis. We read of them being described as sitting in the center of the Garden of Eden. But then, after the fall and banishment, there is no further historical mention of the legendary trees. Did they disappear? Or were they hidden, though in plain sight? Perhaps they are still hiding today?
"The Taste of Life" is a fictional look at biblical truth. Author Mike Simpson traces the vanished trees from Genesis through to the great flood and beyond, even to Christ's crucifixion. Follow Adam and Eve as they first set eyes on the almost sacred, Tree of Life. Later, see the man who planted a pouch full of seeds from the Tree, never knowing that one day another man would save his family by using those timbers which he had planted.
Not all the characters have familiar names. Not all of them appeared in the Bible. Yet, in their own ways, each touched the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and made a difference in this world. Where are the trees today? Do they linger in some far-off mysterious Eden, or could a seedling be growing in your own backyard, where the Lord waits patiently to take your hand?
