Editorial Reviews

Review

"A lovely slim volume…. A reasoned yet passionate window into why gardening is true soul-work." -- Christianity Today

From the Back Cover

Frederica Mathewes-Green — author of The Open Door "Earthy in all the best senses, The Fragrance of God recalls us to the beauty of creation. Guroian is expert at demolishing the kind of spirituality that gets overly spiritualized; he reminds us that God fills and blesses this blooming, growing, changing world."

Bill McKibben — author of The End of Nature "Vigen Guroian’s fine book is proof that Christians would do well to spend more time outdoors, in the one great megachurch that operates as a planet-scale museum of divine intent."

Lee May — author of Gardening Life and My Father's Garden "Vigen Guroian, a gifted storyteller, shares his own constant passion for digging in the dirt amid life’s many changes, reminding us of the universal power and appeal of gardening, that wondrous journey toward our own Paradise rich with plants, stories, beauty, peace, and spirituality."

Roberta C. Bondi — author of Memories of God "This is a lovely book, shimmering with the very beauty of God."

Barbara Brown Taylor — author of When God Is Silent "Even those with no dirt under their fingernails may find comfort and challenge in this testament to the resilience of divine life."

This book grows on a person. I liked it and will like it more. I gave it to gardeners I know who, in turn, really liked it. It puts gardening in contemporary play and worship reminding the one who gardens of the first commission to tend the garden, and so, also of the Master Gardener.

Lovely. Probably one of the books I'll re-read annually.

I love the vision of "smelling God". This book reminds me to use all of my senses when trying to know God. I found the book to be easy to relate to but also stretched my thinking using images that I was familiar with. I understand the joys of gardening and this book only expands that experience. I love the writing and the concept.

I confess that I love gardening and I love thoughtful writing on theology. I am forever changed by reading about Mary mistaking Christ as the gardener! The theological implications are enormous. It left the scent of Christ in my living room...
