Riassunto: An exploration of the symbolic significance of the numerous trees, plants, flowers, and fruits of the Bible, illustrated with an array of exquisite paintings by Anne Ophelia Dowden, one of the world's most distinguished botanical artists. Bible passages are followed by full-color paintings and a description of the plants and their use in biblical times. A Horn Book Fanfare book originally published in 1986, Consider the Lilies is now reissued in paperback format as a companion book to Images of God, also by John and Katherine Paterson, and published in hardcover this spring by Clarion. A dove bearing a sprig of olive in her beak, a vine loaded with sweet purple grapes . . .
