Reviews - What do customers think about Studies in Biblical and Semitic Symbolism?
A masterful study of Biblical symbolism Jan 17, 2010
This book is a rich study of the ancient symbolism of numbers, plants, animals, geography and much more in the ancient Jewish world. The reader gets a rich sense of how metaphor and nature informed the cosmic view of the ancient middle eastern peoples (Jewish and non-Jewish). Farbridge was a good writer and good at explaining his ideas. This book is well worth your time.
