Description

This is a full-color study book with maps and illustrations that offers readers a glimpse into the natural world of the ancient Israelites.What did the people who inhabited the world of the Bible think about nature? What role did nature play in the thought and everyday life of ancient Israel? How did nature come to play such a prominent role in the metaphorical language of the Bible? And what practical implications might there be for us as Bible readers today? Understanding the Ecology of the Bible addresses all these questions in this highly visual, full-color book. This focused study, dotted throughout with maps and illustrations, helps to bring the world of the Bible to life in a fresh way by examining the relationship between the ancient Israelites and the natural world around them.?Dr. Paul H. Wright is President of Jerusalem University College (the Institute of Holy Land Studies). He holds a BA degree in anthropology from Bet
