'The Garden — Art of Faith"

Max Greiner Jr. holds a copy of his first book, “The Garden – Art Of Faith,” at The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden. Behind the artist are two of his works: “The Empty Cross,” at left, and “The Coming King” at right.

The Christian cross has been a lightning rod since Jesus of Nazareth was crucified outside of Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. The religious symbol rouses both love and hate from billions of people around the world to this day. In the USA, the cross has been the target of lawsuits filed by atheists who want to remove the religious symbol from all public property.

On May 5, 2006, passions were aroused in the Lone Star state when a new type of monumental cross sculpture was proposed to be raised over Interstate 10 by professional artist Max Greiner Jr.
