Farming and Gardening in the Bible
Ever since the Garden of Eden humans have worked to wrest sustenance and beauty from the soil. This great striving forms one of the most important parts of the Bible, and helps make it not only the world's most exalted spiritual guide, but also the most compelling "down-to-earth" narrative in literature. Using superb biblical quotations, Farming and Gardening in the Bible tells the fascinating story of the many different kinds of husbandry practiced by the people of the Promised Land. Recreated are the immortal human dramas of the men and women who tilled the soil, sowed the seeds, and reaped the harvests. Vividly brought to life are their loves and hates, their triumphs and transgressions, their wisdom and ignorance. Appealing to all who know and love country life, this wonderful book guides its readers to new personal understanding of the magnificent, timeless revelations of the Scriptures.
