I started this before I left on a trip to Egypt and Israel, hoping to learn about olives, olive trees, and their importance and meaning not only in scripture, but also in the culture of Holy Land.

Then while in Jerusalem, I got to see olive trees, and that made the book even more meaningful when I returned home and was finally able to finish it.

There's an amazing amount of interesting stuff in this book, and I'm very glad I read it.

Somewhat repetitive (with a dozen scholars writing on the same basic theme, this is to be expected), but still a great book. I learned a ton, and look at the allegory differently than I used to. It is not just a history lesson. It is meant to teach us things personally that will improve our lives and the quality of our work in God's kingdom. The final article in the book, questions about the allegory answered by a biologist and a hortculturilist, was worth the price of the book alone.
