Consider not only the lilies of the field, but all the plants, trees, herbs, shrubs, and flowers that play a role in the biblical narrative through this illustrated guide. From the barley Ruth harvested to the hyssop David craved, from the frankincense the wise men brought to Jesus to the sycamore tree Zacchaeus climbed, the Bible is peppered with allusions to the plants that were a part of daily life in the ancient Near East and in New Testament Israel. With original illustrations, this beautiful gift book clarifies the biblical references to fifty plants and provides delightful new insights into the Word of God. Includes indexes to each plant and its corresponding Scripture references, a calendar of Jewish festivals and the growing seasons in Israel, and tips for growing your own biblically inspired garden.

Sumptuous and extraordinary illustrations with accompanying concise definitions and meaningful Bible verses. Defined as “An Illustrated Guide to the Plants of the Bible” this volume is as lovely as it is practical. Included are sections on how to grow a Biblically-inspired garden, calendar of Jewish festivals and growing seasons, and other detailed reference sections. This is much more than just another book on plants written of in the Bible – it is a lovely compendium to keep and share. As beautiful as it is practical. Highly recommended! Enjoy!
