Sacred Flowers, Holy Trees, & Blessed Thorns : Fifty Plants in the Life of Jesus Paperback / softback
by Ami Tamir
"This book tells the stories of fifty flowers and trees connected with Christian tradition which can be found, at the right season, by the Christian pilgrim visiting the land of Israel.
Illustrations are included to enable the pilgrim to identify the less-recognizable plants and encourage a deep observation of the rich botanical variety he will find on footpaths between churches and archaeological and other pilgrimage sites.... "The encounter with the plants brings to life the wondrous tales of the Holy Family: here they acquire a deeper religious significance.
That is the magic secret: to touch the matter, the rocks, the clumps of earth, and the flowers growing on them." - From the Introduction
