About the event

We have the pleasure of hearing from an author who is ALSO a neighbor of the bookshop! Chris McMichael is a pastor at Engrafted Word church, located just up the street from our shop. He has just written an exhaustively researched Victorian-style beautiful green clothbound book about the Bible's botanical symbols. 


For hundreds of years, the plants of the Bible have intrigued believers and botanists alike. Scores of books, written from various perspectives on the subject, have been authored over the years. Nearly 100 plants are recorded in the Holy Scriptures, but not all allude to the Messiah. Redemptive Botany of the Bible is a theological work never before undertaken, diving deeply into the Bible’s botanical symbols that point to Jesus Christ the Redeemer.

Building upon the scientific research of many writers before him, author J. Christopher McMichael employs a scientific hermeneutic to provide a thorough commentary on the symbolism, typology, soteriology, and Christology of over 15 plants of the Bible (though dozens of other Bible plants are discussed as well). Aside from the chapters dedicated to numerous plants, this monumental work also includes chapters regarding the history of science, the history of botany, and the agriculture of ancient Israel. Other subjects woven in and out of this commentary include geology, archeology, Egyptology, metallurgy, and perfumery.
