The first authoritative book to focus on trees, forests and wood in the Bible including how they were used and sometimes abused. Trees, too, abound in the imagery and symbolism, and the pictures and parables of scripture.
What might Noah's Ark have been made of? Why was so much cedar imported by King Solomon for the temple, and what would have been so special? Where do frankincense and myrrh come from? What do we know about the wood of the cross of Christ or the ancient olive trees in Gethsemane? These and many other questions are addressed.
Richly illustrated with colour photographs and original artwork. The book is written as a commentary with a compendium providing additional details.
