"God is a gardener. We know quite a lot about five of his gardens, three of which, for the price of an airline ticket, we can still visit. Murray Pura, writer and pastor in Pincher Creek, is also a gardener. He brings his lifelong immersion in the extravagant vitality and sensuality of gardens-he has planted and tended gardens all across Canada-to God's gardens and what it is like to live in them. This is contemplative writing at its vigorous best, involving us energetically in what God is doing. And not so much as a hint of soft sentimentality or soupy inspiration to mar his imagination-kindling prose." Eugene H. Peterson, Translator of The Message Murray lives by the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park in the Canadian Rockies. His published works include Mizzly Fitch, Mister Good Morning, The Poets Of Windhover Marsh, and Vital Christianity: The Life and Spirituality of William Wilberforce.Pura, Murray is the author of 'The Five Gardens of God', published 2007 under ISBN 9781894667746 and ISBN 1894667743.
