Throughout Scripture, God uses some of the smallest creatures to give examples of ways people should live. The industrious ant, for example, demonstrates the wisdom of providing for the future by storing up food. In Bugs of the Bible, author Dr. John E. Porter provides a scientific study of God's smallest creatures named in the Bible.
"Bugs of the Bible" discusses the habits of insects and small creatures, how their design and habits relate to human life, and how God used insects to perform acts in nature. It includes insight on ants, bees, fleas, flies and gnats, grasshoppers, locusts, hornets, moths, scorpions, spiders, worms, and other creeping things; useful products of insects such as honey and honeycomb, manna, crimson and scarlet colors, and silk; the harmful effects of insects, such as stings, swarms, itches, and scabies; the history of insects from writings of antiquity; little-known facts related to the small creatures and how God instilled instincts in them that provide valuable lessons for human beings; and bible teachings that provide illustrations for teachers and students of science and the Bible.
A unique entomological study, "Bugs of the Bible" examines the smallest creatures, best seen under a microscope, their significance in the created world, and the role they play in life on earth.
