Book excerpt: The aim of ""The Revelation of the Tree of Life: The Theology of Divine Perfection"" is to show Christians and non-Christians a brief presentation of the fuller sense ""sensus plenior"" of God's revelation that began with the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden and ended in the Triumph of the Cross. The procedure of comparing parallel subjects, the principle of the repetition method, the study of God's perfection, and God's sworn testimonies to man were the methods employed in the composition of this exposition. The Revelation of the Tree of Life takes in the whole work of God's Divine revelation (the Old and New Testaments) and interprets them in context and according to Apostolic tradition. The mystery of the Tree of Life once thought impenetrable to human knowledge will be unveiled. The unveiling of the Tree of Life will reveal God's deeper salvific plan for mankind, which is directly connected with the Institution of the Holy Eucharist. For the Tree of the Cross is the Tree of Life.
