about this item

An engaging and informative study of all the most important plants and animals mentioned in the Bible, relating thereferences both to Bible times and to wildlife in the Holy Land now and, where appropriate, explaining the message orsymbolism behind the texts.

The Prologue sets the scene by giving a simple description of the topography and climate of Israel, sothat readers – wherever they are – may get a sense of what the place is like. The following two sections of the book cover first the plants, then the animals mentioned in the Bible.

A wide range of plant life, including wild and cultivated trees, shrubs and herbs is covered and all creatures, great and small, from whales to ants. Mention of the flora and fauna may be used as metaphors in Jesus’ teaching or simply referred to as part of the everyday life of the time.
