Rooted in God: Interpreting Plants in Bible Lore by Dr Carolyn a. Roth

We eat them, we smell them, and we sit under them. Sometimes we even investigate them to discover their hidden significance in the Holy Scriptures. Did you know that the Bible identifies over 125 different plants? Each had a special meaning---superstition, compassion, drunkenness, beauty---to early man.

In Rooted in God, Bible characters you know and love take on added dimension as you drill down to plant symbolism in their stories. Walk with author Dr. Carolyn A. Roth through these ancient characters' lives. Become inspired, frustrated, amused, and irritated as they encounter the same obstacles, make the same mistakes, and have the same victories as everyone has 2,000--4,000 years later.
