The dream of paradise and the use of plants in story telling are as old as man. The Bible readers need only turn a few pages before meeting a description of paradise and a whole world of known and unknown plants such as: aloe, barley, bdellium, cedar, fig, frankincense, pomegranate, olive, vine and general terms like ‘the lily of the fields’. Not only Bible readers, but everyone interested in botany, archaeology, or vegetation history can find subjects of interest in the book, for references are made both to the rich use of plants in the Bible as well as to use of plants in the surrounding coeval cultures. PLANT WORLD OF THE BIBLE includes a comprehensive list of biblical plants, found in archaeological excavations in Israel and surrounding countries. For the first time it is now possible, for most of the biblical plants, to refer to archaeological finds, dated to the biblical period. "I ... find that Dr. Jensen’s work is not only accurate but it is also very interesting. This work should be accepted and enjoyed world wide”. Dr Arnold L. Larsen, Director and Professor emeritus, Colorado State University, Ft. Collins, Colorado, USA. “It is a great pleasure for me to recommend... the book PLANT WORLD OF THE BIBLE authored by Hans Arne Jensen. This book is a careful description of all plants mentioned in the Bible. It provides a botanical description of each plant, a discussion of its identification, as well as its occurrences in the Bible. Furthermore, it contains valuable information on archaeological finds of the plants. It is well structured and with beautiful colour illustrations and black/white drawings. The book is a result of the author’s thorough botanic knowledge and it is based on recent international scholarly and scientific literature within various fields such as biblical studies, archaeology, and cultural history. Thus, the book is the successful outcome of an interdisciplinary work. It is an important contribution to the study of the cultural history of the plants as well as the cultural background of the Bible. I have no doubt that this book will generate a widespread interest among Biblical readers as well as academics such as botanists, archaeologists, cultural history scholars and biblical scholars.” Dr. Bodil Ejrnæs, Assoc. Professor of the Old Testament, Faculty of Theology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. “ PLANT WORLD OF THE BIBLE is a book of high quality, seriously written with knowledge not only from botany but also from archaeology and theology...The illustrations deserves a special attention. The whole page plates are from about 100 years BC to about 300 years AC and are in that way unique...PLANT WORLD OF THE BIBLE is written in a language, which is possible to understand without special knowledge in botany or theology, it is possible to read for all .I highly recommend an English publication of the book. Dr. Erik Nymann Eriksen, Professor emeritus, Department of Horticulture, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. “... a masterpiece that joins the Sacred with Nature and which will delight not only the faithful but also those who have a passion for botany, archaeology and history.” Professor Fabio Gorian, Corpo Forestale, Peri, Italia.

No one familiar with the Bible needs to be told that it is a truly remarkable work. But it takes help to understand this ancient collection of diverse forms of literature written by different people across many centuries. The Eerdmans Commentary on the Bible (ECB) is the finest, most up-to-date single-volume Bible handbook now available. Written by world-class Bible scholars, the ECB encapsulates in nontechnical language the best of modern scholarship on the sixty-six biblical books plus the Apocrypha. The only one-volume Bible commentary to cover all the texts (even including 1 Enoch) regarded by one or more Christian churches as canonical, the ECB provides reader-friendly treatments and succinct summaries of each section of the text that will be valuable to scholars, students and general readers alike. The primary objective of this work is to clarify the meaning of each section of the Bible. Rather than attempting a verse-by-verse analysis (virtually impossible in a one-volume work), the ECB focuses on principal units of meaning -- narrative, parable, prophetic oracle, section of argument, and so on -- highlighting their interconnectedness with the rest of the biblical text. The volume also addresses and answers major issues -- including the range of possible interpretations -- and refers readers to the best fuller discussions. Beyond providing reliable, informative commentary, this hefty volume also includes thirteen introductory and context-setting articles that do justice to the biblical documents both as historical sources and as scriptures. The sixty-seven contributors to the ECB come from a wide variety of backgrounds and are acknowledged leaders in the field of biblical studies. Their contributions stand out either for their fresh interpretations of the evidence, or for their way of asking new questions of the text, or for their new angles of approach. While the translation of choice is the New Revised Standard Version, many of the contributors offer their own vivid translations of the original Hebrew or Greek. Cutting-edge, comprehensive, and ecumenical, the ECB is both a fitting climax to the rich body of interconfessional work undertaken in the latter part of the twentieth century and a worthy launching pad for biblical study in the twenty-first. Special features of the ECB The only one-volume commentary to cover all the texts (including the Apocrypha and 1 Enoch) regarded as canonical Thirteen major essays that introduce each section of Scripture and its study Encapsulates in nontechnical language the best of modern scholarship Includes superb bibliographies and an extensive subject index Written by sixty-seven first-rate Bible scholars Designed for use by scholars, students, pastors, and general readers

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of the Bible. When we read Scripture we often imagine that the world inhabited by the Bible's characters was much the same as our own. We would be wrong. The biblical world is an ancient world with a flat earth that stands at the center of the cosmos, and with a vast ocean in the sky, chaos dragons, mystical mountains, demonic deserts, an underground zone for the dead, stars that are sentient beings, and, if you travel upwards and through the doors in the solid dome of the sky, God's heaven--the heart of the universe. This book takes readers on a guided tour of the biblical cosmos with the goal of opening up the Bible in its ancient world. It then goes further and seeks to show how this very ancient biblical way of seeing the world is still revelatory and can speak God's word afresh into our own modern worlds.
