Plants play an important role in the Bible as landscape but also in the minds and lives of sacred characters. This book suggests that plants were not only symbols but also part of the everyday life of people living in biblical times. A study of the Bible would be incomplete without understanding the importance of the flora, for their various practical uses and meanings serve as a foundation for their symbolic function in the sacred text. Based on serious historical research and scientific knowledge, this book provides an abundance of informative illustrations to help the reader learn about plants of the region, offering an excellent unusual travel guide for anyone interested in exploring the Holy Land.
