Parables are an important part of storytelling and teaching lifelong messages in the Bible. Author Susan Brandt Castelli has recently released a parable of her own, “The Crooked Tree,” metaphorically illustrating a nonbeliever’s path to Jesus Christ.

The book depicts a tree, leaned over toward the ground; the tree cannot see the environment around her, and sees the world from a very limited perspective.

A young man comes along and proceeds to tie a rope around the tree and tie the rope to a stake in the ground, thus training the tree to stand tall.

Eventually, it is revealed the tree represents nonbelievers; the rope and stake represent God’s word, and the young man represents believers who help wayward souls find a way to Jesus.

“When the Lord entered my life during a difficult time, I experienced a peace, joy and love I never knew,” said Castelli. “I desire everyone I know and love to have a personal relationship with Jesus.”

“The Crooked Tree” is sure to inspire children and adults to seek out the love and peace of Jesus Christ.
