Summary
What food did the ancient Israelites eat, and how much of it did they consume? That's a seemingly simple question, but it's actually a complex topic. In this fascinating book Nathan MacDonald carefully sifts through all the relevant evidence, biblical, archaeological, anthropological, environmental, to uncover what the people of biblical times really ate and how healthy (or unhealthy) it was. - Publisher
