Adams, William - The Three Gardens (1856)

William Adams, three years after becoming the founding Pastor at Madison Square Presbyterian Church in New York City, discusses man’s ruin, redemption, and restoration through the lenses of the Gardens of Eden, Gethsemane, and Paradise. In his own words, “The present volume undertakes nothing more than to group together, in the simple and unpretending form of pastorly address—not of philosophic analysis—the principal facts which compose the Christian system. From whatever point of the circumference we start in the great circle of truth, each radius brings us to that focal center—the life and mediation of Jesus Christ.”
