Bible teacher Carole Engle Avriett invites readers to walk with Jesus through the Mediterranean terrain, exploring Jewish traditions and familiar customs in order to draw closer to our God who loves beyond measure.

What do almond trees teach about God’s faithfulness? Why did Jesus refer to bread, a fish, and an egg to describe God’s extravagant generosity? What do ancient trades such as linen-making suggest about God’s refining love?

As Avriett walks readers through the historical background of twelve Scripture passages, she explains how particular images, metaphors, and cultural references in the Bible describe God’s love. Using discussion questions, detailed drawings, and fascinating facts, Cherished by the King brings Scripture to life as readers invite a deeper understanding of God’s Word to transform their minds and hearts.
