Among his books on this topic are Jordan in Bloom: Wildflowers of the Holy Land and Figs Dates Laurel and Myrrh: Plants of the Bible and the Quran.

Drawing on Lytton John Musselmans extensive field investigations from Beirut to Borneo and from the Atlas to the Zagros mountains it also includes his original images of each plant. Incorporating new research on their use reviews are made of recent analytical studies of plants used in materials and technology as well as ancient grains beer production medicine tensile materials soap and other articles. Based on these materials Musselman provides several new plant identifications for controversial biblical passages. In addition the book surveys the history of Bible plant literature from the time of the Greeks and Romans to the present and reviews and correlates it with Bible plant hermeneutics. Extensive references for further study are provided along with an index to all verses containing references to these plants.Foreword: Review of Bible plant literature: Biblical plant entries: References cited: Appendix of plant names: Appendix of Bible versions: Appendix of scripture references.For a very long time I have read commentary after commentary on the Bible where the Bible scholar thought they knew what they were talking about when it came to the flora and the fauna of the Bible. It turns out as Lytton Musselman shows they dont! Here finally we have a definitive and informative treatment of the plants of the Bible both small and large. Highly recommended.
