In this readable book, Peter Goodfellow presents all the birds mentioned in the Bible. He relates the Biblical times to today’s birdwatching in the Holy Land. He also explains the message or symbolism that lies behind many of the references to birds in the Bible.
In the prologue we describe Israel’s topography and climate so that readers – wherever they may be – can get a sense of how it actually is. The following chapters cover a number of themes, such as the relationship between birds and more people, and the place of the birds in the creation of God and our worship. Birds are often mentioned in the Bible. They play an important role when the writers will bring out the purpose of the narrative and describe the personalities of their companions. Through Bible titles and explanations of these, Peter Goodfellow gives a thorough profound dive about the birds’ role in the Old and New Testament, which is really for the benefit and benefit of all Bible readers and birdwatchers.
