Description : Combining his scientific work as an ecologist with a life-long study of the Bible, Daniel Hillel offers fresh perspectives on biblical views of the environment and the origin of ethical monotheism.
Description : Mountains shape the Holy Land that lies along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Two parallel ranges run from north to south and in between is the country's most extraordinary physical feature, the deep trench that holds the River Jordan, the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea, all part of what is still commonly called The Great Rift Valley. This wide variety of landscapes, from snow-topped mountains to fertile plains to deserts, means that the natural vegetation of the land is very different from one area to another; each supporting a range of different plants and animals. With chapters on physical geography and natural vegetation, trees and shrubs, herbs and flowers, mammal, birds, and other creatures, in this new book, Peter Goodfellow explores the natural history of the Bible tying in his descriptions to biblical references and, where relevant, explaining how these factors influenced the lives of the people of the Old and New Testaments.

Description : The Natural History of Creation is the third and final installment in M.A. Corey's natural theology series. This remarkable trilogy has worked in tandem with the findings of modern science to help spearhead the rebirth of the once-dead natural theology movement. In this detailed, yet easy to read work, the author focuses on the religious account of creation found in Genesis One and comes to the astonishing conclusion that there is indeed much scientific truth to be found in this ancient work. Many other writers have also noticed the breathtaking parallels that exist between modern evolutionism and the creation account given in the Bible, but nowhere will the reader find a more thorough description of them than in The Natural History of Creation. - Back cover.
