“Calvary’s Tree”: a bittersweet story of a chosen tree’s special purpose. “Calvary’s Tree” is the creation of published author Teri Marcos, a university professor of educational leadership from Chino, California, who in her free time writes children’s books for her grandchildren and bakes her famous gingerbread.

Nana Marcos writes,
“What, of time, has woven the fate
Of Calvary’s wooden tree,
Hewn by hand and roughly cut
Which strong, steadfast, held Thee?

Soft palms it did spread
Long legs, crossed at length,
Some gambled and laughed
Did they know of Thy strength?

Fallen from a standing grove
Now as bare as bare,
A plan from which a Carpenter
Was born in Manger Square?”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Teri Marcos’s new book is a beautiful story that speaks to the biblical maxim that everything has a time, a season, and a purpose—even a young tree in a forest.

Written in the awestricken, ponderous manner of William Blake and his tiger, this unique, poignant book will touch hearts of all ages and inspire a deeper appreciation for Christ’s momentous gesture of love all those years ago in Calvary—as well as for the tree God created especially for this purpose.
