“The Garden”
(The Book)
01/12/21 – “WOW Max! That is a glory story for sure! You have been so faithful all these years. You built an incredible garden according to Gods plans and not mans’. He has led and guided you and Sherry every step of the way. I can only imagine what this year will bring! The Church is going to arise, the blind will see, the sick will be healed, the lame will walk, the broken-hearted will find Joy in the midst of the darkness the light will shine ever brighter! Praise Him for the difficulties that brings a great awakening and a worldwide harvest. My prayer is for us to stand firm in His power and......pray as Paul asked: “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” (Ephesians 6:18-20 NIV). Blessings and favor for all who serve, all who share the Good News, and for safety to travelers as they seek (plow) to find TRUTH in God’s gardens!”

10/15/20 – “This is an exceptional artist! I mean he really is; he is not only a friend. He is the best! I have never seen anybody who came close to his work! And, I have seen a lot of stuff at my age! Get his book! It will fascinate you!”
Herman Baily, THE HERMAN & SHARRON “IT’S TIME” SHOW, CTN, Clearwater, FL
10/15/20 – “Max, my apologies, but I just had to write this tonight. I just finished reading the book (OK, so I know a lot of the history and I speed read, maybe not each word). As I read, one name kept coming to mind; Nehemiah. He and Gideon are two of my favorite Old Testament guys, real heroes. We have never discussed it, but the parallels to Nehemiah are striking. Nehemiah was the one who received the vision from God to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. Nehemiah accepted the mantle of leadership and set about it. He organized he rebuilding of the wall, partitioning and assigning builders (those who worked for the Lord), But not all “put their shoulders to the work” (they resisted the work for whatever reason). But those who did work were recognized. There was resistance, based on lies and hate, resistance that used fear, deceit, manipulation and intimidation. Throughout it all, Nehemiah called on God and relied upon Him. Those who hated God were negative, cast doubt, used intimidation. God had Nehemiah use people that were reminded that God was with them, and they continued to work on the Wall. God brought the right people to finish the wall, working with their weapons close at hand in preparation for attacks. By Faith, they worked as a Team, always keeping sight of the Vision led by Nehemiah. All the while continuing to listen to God. Again, enemies were sent to deceive Nehemiah and the Wall Builders. Nehemiah stayed true to the Vision and refuted every tongue that accused him. And although “prophets" encouraged him to retreat, he responded: ‘Should a man like me run away?’ Nehemiah stayed true to God’s calling, giving God the Glory. When it was finished, then the inhabitants praised the Lord and worshipped Him. Priests and Levites were assigned duties, each to his own task. The Book is a story of perseverance, faith, trust, forgiveness, and just being not bright enough to know when you are licked (see “Rust” in God). So many parallels. So much Faith shown by both Sherry and you. (Just imagine how much more Nehemiah could have gotten done with a “Sherry.”) God’s Blessings and Peace upon you both. I ask His Angels to surround you and protect you in Jesus Name. ”
Dr. Bill Morrill, City By The Sea, TX
10/09/20 – “ A library of God’s mighty acts today. I have been an eyewitness since the very beginning of this supernatural unfolding story. The stories in this book are documented in great detail as they unfolded. What you will read is those true stories retold. You will never read another book like this one, outside the Bible itself. It draws you in to read the next account of Father-God’s activity with Hs creation. A MUST read.”
Jack Rothenflue, Kerrville, TX (AMAZON BOOK REVIEW - 5-Stars)
10/03/20 – “I have known Max Greiner long before this wonderful garden was begun. I have prayed, cried, worshipped, and rejoiced with him through many of the experiences recounted in this book. It was my great privilege to write the foreword for the book. This is not just a book about a garden. It is a book recounting the miraculous workings of The Holy Spirit, the incredible grace and power of Jesus Christ, and the outpouring of our Heavenly Father's Grace and Love. I will warn you up front that this book will challenge your faith. Please, please, please, judge this book only by the only absolute written authority in this world, the Holy Bible. It is sure to offend the flesh if you are locked into traditions or denominational Christianity. Remember Acts 17:11 "These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so." If your heart is open to God working miracles today as He did in the first century, you will be greatly blessed. One of the things I have learned (from Max and other circumstances) is that God enjoys getting you out of your comfort zone ... this book will do that. It is a long read. I know, I proof-read the chapters. I am convinced every word in the book is true. Max asked me to be responsible for the theological veracity of the events and witness. I am here to tell you that I prayed many many times, and spent hours comparing his text with God's. A few times I asked him to reword a few sentences or change his presentation a little. He was always most gracious and never offended by my attempts to make this book as Scripturally correct as my imperfect life and understanding of God's Word allows. For the record, I have to say that I have not bought one of these books ... Max personally gave me one of the first copies in which he wrote a nice personal message to me, and autographed for me. God bless you ... reading this book will be a significant event in your earthly pilgrimage.”

9/12/20 – “Max and Sherry, when I opened the front cover of our (hardback) book ‘The Garden’ I was moved to tears as I read your heart felt words and knowing you sketched this amazing “cross in the garden” picture for us. It will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you for your friendship and doing exactly what Holy Spirit called you to do. You could have said no, but you said yes! And, because you said yes many souls have been saved, delivered and healed! The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden will always be a place of healing, salvation and peace. In the past five years since Terry and I have been involved, sooo much has changed at the garden. We have seen the hand of God move so mightily and sometimes at the last second! God never ceases to amaze me! I am rereading your book ‘The Garden’. Each time I read a chapter, I learn so much more about the journey you have walked to get where you are today. I pray blessing of health and prosperity over you both daily!”

Rick Malm, President & Founder of COMMISSION TO EVERY NATION, Kerrville, TX
9/5/20 – “Your book will show them that God has not abandoned them at all; that they must trust in Him, as you and Sherry have always done, despite some very troubling times; tested many times, just as Job was tested. I am certainly no Biblical scholar, but I know your book is full of glory, and it will resonate. It was a true honor to be part of your project, and I am always available, if you need me. You’re one of the very good guys out there, Max, and I know the world is a more beautiful - and blessed - place because of what you and Sherry have created for others in His name. All good things.”

8/16/20 – “There is no way to read this book without coming away with a deepening of faith. This revelation of how God works to bring about what He wants is an addendum to our Bibles. It affirms dynamically God's purpose for us today and how He supports us in this endeavor. It is proof positive we fight from victory not for victory. Need I need more? Thank You, God. My faith is sealed.”
Barbara Ashmore, Springfield, MO
8/16/20 – “We have been reading our book and just simply, love it! We are truly blessed to be a part of it. Yes, the experience with the COMING KING picture and then at the Fountain, has changed my life. I have two daughters so I had to buy another book so there would not be a struggle! They both want one! I enjoyed it so much when you added personal photos and information about your family and your ranch. As always, we will return one day. Blessings, to you and yours.”
Beth Kray, San Jose, CA
8/15/20 – “Max, I am loving this book! I read it every night! It is FANTASTIC! It is powerful and I am really enjoying it. I can’t put it down. Michelle even told me to put it down because we had to get up early the next morning! It is good writing!”
David Broussard, Canton, TX
8/14/20 – “Max and Sherry, I really don’t read books. I just finished the book. I started it yesterday morning and finished today at 3pm today. I could not put it down. It is amazing. As I read it, I felt that I was reading the Acts of the Apostles and the letters to the churches. I realize that both of you are apostles of Jesus. And, you are surrounded by a great number of apostles of Jesus. It is the story of powerful modern-day apostles from Texas and around the America. The apostles like Paul and the others were being attacked by the enemy. They wanted to kill the story of Christ and prevent you from raising the cross of Jesus. The evil ones (pharisees and preachers) were telling vicious lies and making personal attacks against all of you. They were wanting to bankrupt you and ruin your lives. They hit you from every angle possible. Wave after wave of evil was thrown at all of the faithful. Then, you were dragged from city to city and court to court. They were not going to stop until they crushed what God had given you to do. Then, there was Judas, the attorney. Who was working very slowly and giving you bad instructions as to what you could do. She was acting on the part of the evil one and his minions. She dragged things out as long as she could, causing you great distress and financial ruin. The minions were attacking you in the press and all around the area. But when a door is closed there is a window. And, God was in constant communication with you. But there were many times when it appeared ‘all is lost’, but y’all persevered and kept the faith. The evil one was trying every way to destroy you. That did not stop you from continuing to bring others to Jesus and giving the powers of the Spirit of God. The miracles continued and the enemy was making it harder on you, but this was allowing the world to see what was happening. Christians all over America and the world became very interested in your plight. You finally found out the attorney was working for the evil one all the time. You stood your ground. You and the other apostles continued to share the Glory of Jesus everywhere. People were being covered in golden dust. Many kinds of miracles occurred, casting out demons and releasing the broken from bondage. Finally, God’s plan worked. He spoke and the mission was saved on the hill. The cross was raised, and many more people came to receive the Living Water and the Spirit of God. This created an enormous number of new disciples who are currently spreading the love and miracles of Jesus. The fire is now burning on the mountain and the glory of God is shown to everyone. The flames are now spreading everywhere. The minions and demons are burning in hell and being driven into the outer darkness. The evil one is no more.”
Jim Mercer, M.D. Psychiatrist, Big Spring, TX
8/13/20 – “Got the book. I’m so excited for you. This book will bring great acclaim to the Cross, and well deserved credit to you and Sherry, and all of the wonderful contributors and volunteers. I will do my part to promote it.”

8/12/20 – “I think this book is marvelous!”
Carol Coates, St. Louis, MO
8/11/20 – “WOW Max! I love the book and feel honored to have had even a tiny part in helping make it a reality. What a treasure – the book, the Garden and especially the loving LORD behind (or in front of) it all.”
Rick Malm, Executive Director, COMMISSION TO EVERY NATION, Kerrville, TX
8/7/20 – “Max, the book is WONDERFUL! You said everything just right! I’m on page 135 and I just got the book yesterday! This book will be a revelation to the church around the world and how it should work!”
Margie Osborne, Abilene, TX
8/7/20 – “Hello Max and Sherry! Congratulations on your new book! I have been reading our special “signed” book “The Garden” every evening. History has been recorded, lives will be changed, and Jesus is glorified! Hallelujah! Every afternoon I watch The Kerrville Daily Times and what a great surprise to see and hear that Max Greiner Jr. was their special guest! You did an excellent job sharing your heart about The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden and your new book, “The Garden”. I am very proud of you both! We thank you for all your prayers and encouragement! We love you and bless you both. You mean so much to us and we are grateful Holy Spirit brought us together. We are here for you, always! Take care and God bless!”
Linda and Terry Forse, Kerrville, TX
8/5/20 – “Hey Max, I really can't tell you how many hours it took me to read your book. I can tell you the day I received it I read 89 pages. Then, after that every spare moment I had I read it for probably 6-7 days. I just couldn't stop! I've carried it around with me and shared testimonies out of it. People are hungry for the supernatural and most of the people here have never experienced it.”
Bette Gallier, San Antonio, TX
8/4/20 – “Max, I received your fabulous book last week and could hardly wait to read it. I am a voracious reader and blew through it in a matter of days. What a blessing - even though I thought I knew about some of it, I was overwhelmed at yours and Sherry's journey. Wallace and I can relate to spiritual warfare but NOTHING like you guys. It is such a faith builder and thank you for sharing your amazing journey with us, the Body of Christ and all those unknown, who are destined to reach God's Garden and the Empty Cross. May all of God's Blessings be yours and Sherry's. We are so proud of you both.”
Wallace & Bette Gallier, San Antonio, TX
8/3/20 – “I’m enjoying perusing the book. The Butterfly Effect is one of my all-time favorite stories. I read that story years ago in your Intercessor letter! George Washington Carver is one of my heroes. The stories of healings and the testimony of Patricia Wyatt and all the glory stories I’ve read thus far are so amazing, and such a tribute to Father God’s love toward each of us. This book so honors God. This book encourages each of us to go further out into the deep...trusting Him. As the old saying goes, If He calls you to it, He will bring you through it! And, you will know IT WAS ALL DONE BY HIM! Thanks for words of hope and encouragement this brings. Blessings to you, Sherry and your family.”
Barbara Franklin, Executive Director, CHRIST CENTRAL, Aiken, SC
8/1/20 – “I love it! Well put together! God is going to use it!”
Rev. Fern Lancaster, Kerrville, TX
7/30/20 – “It’s a true historic work of art ... it’s just like you built a pyramid with all those analogies ... many laborers; trials; persistence and the eventual miracles, like crossing the Red Sea ( Reed its real name..) with the miracles of Moses’ hand and rod that God used to get His people out of Egypt ...Now it’s the future battles of taking The Promised Land of the real Land of Israel for the Tabernacle of David to be established! Thank y’all for ALL this work, persistence & the beautiful portrayal and story of what God has accomplished through you! Truly, truly amazing!”
Linda Morris, Executive Director, DODI YAVOH MINNISTRIES, Collinsville, IL
7/30/20 – “We got your book! Brilliant piece of work! Really nice.”
Monte Paddleford, EAGLE BRONZE, Lander, WY
7/29/20 – “We just received our beautiful book. The pictures are so special to me. I am excited to read it. I so enjoyed all of the CD's, so I am sure this will be read by my entire family of seven. We so want to come visit again. As soon as we can, we will. I will let you know before we come. I am in touch with Jim Musso several times a week. Debbye, you were so right, we are a good fit. Max, when we saw you driving the Lion onto the grounds it was a special treat that we were Blessed with. You made it so very special for us. The Garden will remain in our hearts forever. Thank you.”
Beth Kray (Family of 7 baptized on 1-7-2017), San Jose, CA
7/27/20 – “Max, I got your book. I can’t put it down! I can’t put it down! I am halfway through it and I can’t put it down! And it’s a big book! It is amazing, a blend of the Old and New Testaments. Every house should have this book and the Bible, since it is a testimony of God’s power. It has blessed me and stretched my faith. It takes you way past a mustard seed of faith! It is going to be used powerfully by God!”
Barbara Ashmore, Springfield, MO
7/24/20 – “First off thank you for your multi-year effort... it is a beautiful and inspiring work of art... as well as a historical record of the Garden. And finally, what a wonderful surprise to see the personal message from you in the front of our book... what a treasure for us to keep and display. Thank you for your years and years of hard work and dedication to our Lord and Savior...”
Bill and Cheryl Fitch, Kerrville, TX
7/20/20 – “Max you did a magnificent job on the book! Congratulations!!”
Patsy Jordan, Kerrville, TX
5/31/20 – “Max and Sherry, I am so proud and thankful that you and Sherry obeyed Holy Spirit when He called you to create The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden. You could have said no but because you answered Yes many, many, lives have and will forever be changed! (Romans 10: 9-10) Also, thank you for taking time to create a true history book of The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden. Now these true stories, miracles and special God stories will be share from generations to generations! I look forward to seeing how Holy Spirit uses your book “The Garden” to change even more lives for His glory! We love you and bless you!”
Linda and Terry Forse, Kerrville, TX
5/31/20 – “Max, I scanned the whole book. It looks wonderful. I love the artsy stuff, the call-outs, the Papyrus font, the pictures … it is a beautiful work of Faith and art. My prayer is that God will put 10,000,000 in circulation, and that the flow of The Spirit through you will be magnified above measure, in this age and the age to come.”
Robert E. Carpenter, Kerrville, TX
2/11/20 – “I am so grateful God brought us together, Max. From the moment I saw the ‘The Empty Cross’ as we entered Kerrville, I knew there was a reason we’d decided to make the Hill Country our home - I had thought it was rolling fields of bluebonnets, and the music that seemed to be everywhere. But it was your Hill, Max. The Garden touched my soul, and I have lovely memories of being “home” whenever I visited it. You’ve created a spiritual oasis for one and all at a time when so many need a place to heal and find peace in a world in the midst of chaos. This book will be a wonderful reminder that God has a plan.”
