About this book

The Prologue sets the scene by giving a simple description of the topography and climate in Israel, so that readers – wherever they are – may get a sense of what the place is like. The following chapters cover topics such as the creation of birds; bird migration; Job's birds; birds and Jesus; and singing and nesting birds. Some species are written about in detail. Others, especially those whose identity is disputed, get less attention. Birds are mentioned repeatedly in the Bible. They play a big role in illustrating the authors' intentions and in describing the characters in the stories. Illustrated with exquisite watercolours, Birds of the Bible reveals the significance and identity of all of the birds in the Old and New Testaments.
