In his introduction, he explains which plant names are used in the Bible, why the Bible does not go into detail about their medicinal values, and how translation errors have lead to misinterpretations of Bible passages.
The major portion of the book is dedicated to the plants themselves. Duke explains their possible benefits and their use in medicine and cooking. He offers folklore, and for some plants even recipes, such as a skin softener made with almond oil, a dandruff shampoo with olive oil, or a wart removal remedy with figs. It's not a book for herbal self-medication, but an herbal encyclopedia on a small scale. I really enjoyed it.
The reader can enjoy learning about past and present uses of some of these familiar herbs and plants.
Mr. Duke should be commended for his accuracy and yet delightful knowledge about herbs.
I take his book to show during my speeches about herbs mentioned in the Bible and have yet to meet anyone who doesn't appreciate his book. Even people who aren't interested in using herbs can learn how the chemical components of certain herbs have been the basis of our modern day medicines.
I always recommend that this book should be an essential part of anyone's garden library.
James Duke does not need recommendations.
This is just to state that the book had wonderful pearls and is very friendly written and is very easy to search.
The title is clear.
