Overview

The Paradise Tree is a beautiful devotional companion about the experience of God and giving expression to our inner spirituality.

A creative mixture of poetry, prose and scripture, this book will challenge preconceptions about the nature of God, heaven, hell, intercessory prayer, and the relevance of human existence within the vastness of an unfathomable universe.

This book is about personal discipleship and giving witness to the presence of God to the world around us. It is about finding within our inner being the meaning of life itself and about our future destiny. To do this we need to reflect upon the life and witness of a man who lived two thousand years ago and who, by his life of personal sacrifice to the needs of others in the name of love, gave visible expression to the reality and being of God, in the everyday life of humankind.

About the Author

During his City days as a junior executive, John Davey became a Special Constable attached to Bow Street Police Station.

Having felt a calling since his early teens, the priesthood beckoned, and in 1966 he started training at theological college. As part of his pastoral training, John made regular visits to Ford Open Prison, and, as a curate in Eastbourne, trained as a voluntary probation officer. His final full-time ministerial post was as Chaplain and Director of Studies at the National Police Staff College, Bramshill, a training establishment for senior police officers.

During forty years of full-time ministry, John has served as a pastor and mentor to people from all walks of life, and was, for a time, Chaplain and Minor Canon of St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

John is now retired and lives with his wife Mary in Nottingham.
