The Natural History of the Bible
Peter Goodfellow | John Beaufoy Publishing Ltd (2017)
This, the third in a series written by Methodist local preacher Peter Goodfellow, is a delightful and well-researched account of the natural history of the Holy Land. Arranged over six chapters, a general introduction to the physical geography and natural vegetation of the Holy Land is followed by chapters on 'Trees and Shrubs', 'Cereals, Herbs and Flowers', 'Mammals', 'Birds' and 'Other Creatures'. The author takes the reader through a survey of the references to living things in the Old and New Testament. He combines biblical commentary with extensive knowledge of natural history to give insights into the important part that agriculture and animal husbandry played in everyday life and its social structure in biblical times.
