Overview

A Bible full of ancient truths. A woman living a modern life. Join critically acclaimed author Margaret Feinberg as she invites readers on the spiritual adventure of a lifetime. In her quest to better understand what God wants to communicate through the Bible, Feinberg explores the symbols and metaphors within its stories. To discover these deeper meanings, she spends time with a shepherdess in Oregon, walks the fields with a farmer in Nebraska, explores a vineyard of California, and talks with a veteran beekeeper in Colorado. Along the way, she gains deeper insight about how Scripture applies to life today and discovers answers to puzzling questions. Do sheep really know their shepherd's voice? How often does a grapevine need to be pruned? What does it mean when a land is described as overflowing with honey?

Feinberg, a popular author and speaker, was named one of the 'Thirty Emerging Voices' of Christian leaders under forty who will lead the church in the next decade, and one of the 'Forty under Forty' who will shape Christian publishing.

    An Insight into the Ancient

    Have you ever read the Bible and wondered what they were talking about? The Bible is such a living, poignant book, still speaking deep truths after thousands years. But the Ancient culture of the Bible is wholly foreign to us in this day and age.

    What does it mean for a shepherd to be the gate? Why is a land flowing with milk and honey so wonderful? Do you really know what first fruits are?

    Margaret Feinberg had a brilliant idea to visit a shepherdess, a farmer, a beekeeper and a vintner to gather insight into these ancient trades. The truths she uncovers are so profound and obvious once you recognize them, its no wonder they spoke to so many back in those times. Reading this book has allowed me to understand the simple principles Jesus was trying to convey to everyday people. And after all this time, the principles of these trades has barely changed, allowing modern farmers to realize the full potential of Jesus' words, every day they labor.

    Its a fantastic read. You'll want to pass it on.
