Chosen Tree: Gifts of the Spirit by James B. Bailey
'It was the worst kind of day. I watched the people as I always did, and I saw some very hard looking men coming toward me. They had saws and axes in their hands, and I knew my time had come.'
The Chosen Tree is Jim Bailey's poignant children's story told from the perspective of the beautiful tree that would helplessly become the cross on which Jesus was crucified. The Chosen Tree is a story of sacrifice, servitude, and most importantly, forgiveness.
