Item description for Treeman by David Soderberg...

Writing "Treeman" posed unusual challenges. How do you stay close to Mark, the oldest Gospel, without the dialogue most fiction relies upon? Dogs don't talk, after all. How do you stay true to canine senses and behavior, like red-green color-blindness and perpetual interest in food, through these shattering events? How would this scarred, abused mongrel react to the miracles, the snap of torches, the roar of crowds? What would he make of the one on whom it all hinged: Treeman? The dying dog's blunt viewpoint demands we rethink stories many of us have heard since childhood. But "Treeman" is also about aging without whining or backbiting, a supreme witness to a life lived longing to trust and to be trusted.

Reviews - What do customers think about Treeman?

Jesus As You've Never Seen (Smelled) Him  Jun 14, 2007
As a high-school literature teacher in a Christian school, I wish I could assign this to my students. So much of what we "know" about Jesus comes from silly Sunday-school lessons. Treeman takes a dog's-eye view of Jesus, and thus opens up an entirely new world for understanding the Son of Man. Treeman truly makes the story of Jesus come alive, by connecting us with the sounds and smells of Palestine. The crucifixion-narrative was especially powerful--we forget how bloody the event was, but that's what overpowers the dog's acute nose.

In this age of so many watered-down stories of Jesus, we need something to hit us at a more primal level. Treeman captures the glory of the Incarnation--God became man, with blood, sweat, and the smell of sawdust.

I should also add that my review was published before I noticed that the rating was only a 2 star rating. Not sure how that happened. It should be a 5 STAR rating!
Canine Christianity -- just a literary exercise, or something more telling?  May 20, 2006
Tough, emotionally tough too, from the view of a dog.
This book is great for young adults as an exercise in taking a radically unusual viewpoint on stories we have heard from childhood. It is also a subtle study of beliefs millions take for granted. It is also a study in total trust--the mind of a malnurished, abused mongrel reaches out to the principle characters of the Bible--can they be trusted?
