For those who might have wondered about the uses of myrrh, for example, or more common plants such as cumin, mustard seed and mint, Duke, a botanist and ethnobotanist, provides information. He has combed the Bible for references to plants and profiles them here, citing botanical names, common names, and uses both as pharmaceuticals and food sources. While he lists various historical claims for the efficacy of the plant he also evaluates the truth of such claims, from folk myth to tested and proved in controlled scientific studies. Every entry is accompanied by an illustration of the plant. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
