This book of sculptures features 116 nine inch by twelve inch pages, more than 80 color photographs of 51 works of art by J.Christopher White.  Bird sculptures, fish sculptures, western carvings, and sculptures from the popular "Relections of the Heart" gallery are all featured in the book.  It also includes poetry, personal testimonials, the tools, and a behind the scenes look at the unusual process of harvesting the wood, some of which is 1000 to 2000 years old. We're sure that you'll want a copy for yourself and some to give as gifts after you view the work of this most unusual and gifted artist

Parables: truths illustrated, amplified, enhanced and applied, through the use of creations and their stories; lessons presented on a road that travels through the scenic valleys of the imagination; a path that circumvents certain defenses and pragmatic judgments found on the barren of plains of mere intellect. This road, with its veiled entrance, winds its way to a less guarded door to the heart. A truth found on this path may catch a person unaware and slip into the heart before pride and willful blindness slam the door closed. Once inside, the truth sheds light that cannot be extinguished by any darkness.

Each wooden parable displayed [in this book] presents a truth. Their stories are related in verse and retold in prose. Though each piece tells a separate story, a scarlet thread passes throughout the book tying together the different images in an attempt to reveal a Person. It is my prayer that the eyes of your heart will look past the works, beyond the artist, and into the eyes of the Creator, whose story they tell.
