Giveaway: In the Garden - An Illustrated Guide to the Plants of the Bible

Have you ever thought about how often plants appear in the Bible? They show up right away in Genesis, as part of creation. They're a symbol for life and death. Zaccheus climbed up a tree. Herbs and plants are mentioned with the wise men, and the women who followed Jesus.
In the Garden has beautiful illustrations and descriptions of r50 plants found in Israel and the Mediterranean. It's a great way for Bible readers to visualize the plants referred to, as well as learn more about the area where Biblical figures lived. In many cases, understanding the plant world can deepen understanding of Scripture.
In the Garden 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 very own biblically inspired garden.
I received a copy I can give away - if you're interested, leave a comment by February 14th with your favorite Biblical plant.
