The Botanical Easter Story
In a unique way, follow Jesus through the last week of His life. Meditate on a paraphrased version of Jesus' passion and death while enjoying photos of forty-eight plant species.
After a visit to Israel, author Nola Orich was inspired with a new-found desire to read her Bible, and to study the plants of the Holyland. She began to see how Bible scriptures could be paired with the common names of many plants. Nola created a plant display which told the Easter story in a distinctive and very visual style.
This photographic presentation evolved naturally from the author's work with plant displays As a result ... this delightful work of art.
This book affords an unusual opportunity for conversation, especially during the Easter season.
The photos and scriptures provide a simple yet very personal way to meditate on our Savior's sacrifice of love.
Nola and Reg Orich live in a small city in southern Alberta, where they enjoy many nature activities.
Nola was raised in a rural area of southern Saskatchewan, where her parents nurtured her love for animals, plants and gardening. in her adult life, as she traveled to many places, she most often included visits to parks and botanical gardens. Her trips to Israel were especially inspiring.
Reg has used his passion for nature and photography to help Nola in the sharing of her love for pets, plants and the Bible. They have created several books that combine photography with scripture quotes.
