Publishers Description Junior, a great oak in the forest near Jerusalem, had a call on his life, a mission so divinely important to mankind that God Himself had chosen Junior for the task. James H. Greene's fictional tale, "The Chosen Tree," may be among the greatest stories never told and it is surely one of the warmest and most touching. It just so happens that when Junior was an acorn, he took root on the very day that an angelic host came to herald the birth of an infant in the nearby town of Bethlehem. "All night long the forest watched the star-like body drift slowly down from heaven," Green writes. "It glowed with the colors of a rainbow and from it emanated sounds never heard before on earth ... the voices sung of the coming of the savior." In fact, it wasn't a star but a host of angels proclaiming the birth of a king. "The Chosen Tree" deals with a special little tree that has a special relationship with a special child who would later give his life for the world. As a matter of fact, Junior, who grows into a great oak, gives his life, too. Their mutual love and sacrifice finally brings them together in a common purpose. Even though readers slowly realize that the inevitable, "The Chosen Tree" keeps them wondering about the Lord's -- and Junior's -- great sacrifice. Funny, it all plays out just as they knew it would.

Review of a Great Book Oct 14, 2004
The book "The Chosen Tree" was creative, inspirational, delightful, thought provoking and serious at the same time. I was reminded of the C.S. Lewis books when I read it and believe it could be the beginning of a series. In a new way it made me see how exquisite nature is, how special each one of us is - and that there is a plan for man and the world.
Truly The Whole Earth Groans For The Manifestation May 26, 2004
This book speaks for itself once you began to read it. Its simply written but is so eloquently penned by its author. The relationship of earths elements to the Messiah who is to come for the salvation of mankind speaks out so astutely over 2000 years ago and still even today in its pages. Truly the whole world is a stage and everything within it plays a part. I can also see this book being made into an animated movie for all ages.
