Go to the Ant by Ghillean Prance


 Ghillean Prance is Scientific Director and a Trustee of the Eden Project in Cornwall. He was Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew from 1988 to 1999. He is a Christian and, amongst other things, is involved with the charity, A Rocha International.

Go to the Ant is a book of biblical reflections drawn from his experiences exploring the Amazon and many other regions, from the White Mountains of Turkey to the Hawaiian Archipelago. It is his hope that this book will move Christians to wonder at some of the marvels of nature, and so to treat God s creation with reverence and respect. The author explains that the Bible is teeming with information about plants and biodiversity and different animals and their behaviour, revealing that its writers, like King Solomon and the oracle Agur, had intimate everyday knowledge of the natural world around them and learned from it.

 The official launch of the book is at Lyme Baptist Church on Saturday 1st June at

10am – 2pm. Everyone is welcome and will have the opportunity

to obtain a signed copy.
