From the Author
Thank you for taking this journey with me into ancient Mesopotamia. Our collective history grounds us in this region--full of mystery, intrigue and yes--conflict. If we could hear the cries of the people that have fought and died over this land, it would be deafening. To this very day, the battle continues as ISIS tries to establish their caliphate, believing that this would usher in the end-times. It is important that we all understand and gain wisdom to know how to pray. This radical ideology cannot be won on the battlefield with more guns and bombs.
Lord, give us wisdom.
The images, the suffering, the horror of the earthquake that you read in The Tree of Life are based in reality and my experience in the massive earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010. Responding with Hope Force International, I arrived at ground zero three days after the devastating quake. Even to this day, my words escape me to capture the absolute horror and devastation we entered. As I wrote The Tree of Life, I struggled with how real and descriptive to make the scenes. I know they are awful, but they barely scratch the surface. Also, understand in the midst of that horrendous affair, there were great acts of kindness, heroics, sacrifice, and love. Two weeks after caring for lines and lines of broken and battered people, our group was taking medical supplies to another hospital. We were stopped in downtown Port-au-Prince by a massive traffic snarl. With destruction all around us, the city was at a standstill. Then something I will never forget happened. Thousands of Haitians, broken and battered, people who had suffered unimaginable tragedy, who had lost everything including many of their family members, began to worship the Heavenly Father. A song started somewhere in the heart of one and spread and continued to spread until every person, as far as I could see was on their knees or standing with their hands raised, worshiping God.
Lord, have mercy.
Finally, my friend, this story is for you. We are often confused when our faith and beliefs do not match up with what we experience in life. It seems that no life is carefree. I don't know what you are going through, but if you are living life, I suspect it is something. Possibly financial strains, problems at work or home, personal struggles, issues with your children or parents, addictions, anger, bitterness, maybe even feeling that the world would be better off without you. We all seek relief from the pains and strife that life throws at us unexpectedly, like an earthquake that shakes our world. I don't understand suffering. I truly don't. And worst of all, the world will do its best to beat us down. "You are not good enough, you don't have what it takes, what's wrong with you"--all an attack on our identity. But what if we truly knew who we are and whose we are? What would our lives be like then? In that search, we may find ourselves longing to return to union and intimacy with God. To do that, we must first understand who we are in His eyes. We long to once again walk with God in the garden in the cool of the day-and intimately know Him and be known by Him. The good news is, we are already complete in Him, already eating from the tree of life as we abide in Jesus-He in us and we in Him.
Lord, give us understanding.
May your eyes be open to the truth...Timothy

Dr. Nicklaus Hart travels to Turkey in the aftermath of an earthquake to tend to an overwhelming number of injured people. As he works, he meets both good and evil. He faces an internal choice of love or devastation. That choice is especially critical when he finds himself face to face with Isis fighters where it means choosing good or joining evil, and truly, the difference between life and death.
The Tree Of Life is a well-researched, well-lived novel that comes from a talented writer who has delved deeply into his subject in many ways. It is heartening, heartbreaking, and beautiful. I highly recommend The Tree Of Life by Timothy Browne.
It's very well-written and I can heartily recommend this to readers, whether Christian or otherwise, who enjoy action-packed and suspenseful novels.
FYI, this is the 2nd novel in the Dr. Hart series. While it is a stand-alone work, if possible, I'd suggest first reading the initial novel, Maya Hope.
I truly appreciate the manner in which Timothy Browne‘s main character stays ‘human’ by how his faith thrives, wanes, questions, struggles & thrives again; yet the reader is slyly reminded of God’s unconditional, everlasting love ... even as we teeter with the balance of moral & ethical dilemmas!
Such an intriguing storyline & as Timothy Browne exhibited in his novel ‘Maya Hope’, so very relevant in this day & age!
I quickly started reading ‘The Rusted Scalpel’ & can already tell it’ll be on my ‘must read’ faith based author list.
Thank you Timothy Browne for these intriguing stories & God Bless you & your family!
Once again Dr. Browne portrayed real life world issues accurately and showed the ongoing spiritual battle for the hearts of people everywhere. He also shows how people can come together to help one another in a crisis.
Most importantly, Dr. Browne shows that our Lord loves all people and reaches out to us continually.
I highly recommend this book.
