"All the world loves jewels. They are some of the most highly-prized items throughout history. They never lose value, and they evoke every emotion from the most noble to the most base. But have we ever seriously considered what it means to be a jewel? This is the purpose of this book." The earth is constantly moving, shifting, changing. Stone is constantly being created. It is heated, squeezed, and weathered into new stone, and then it is remelted to start the process anew. By studying the formation of stone, we learn to read the pages of earth's history, and understand the valuable lessons therein. Patricia Harvey, in her first book, presents us with a way forward in our spiritual existence by opening our eyes to some of these lessons, highlighting the 'painful labour' required to produce something as precious as a jewel. "The gifts brought by the Spirit are enduring in quality and immeasurably precious, edifying the church. These are Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness and Temperance. These jewels, when accepted by the follower of Christ, mark the Christian in all his goings, and shape his character, much as the diamond is used in the processing of other jewels."
