"This book was a real revelation to me. What an original way of looking at the Bible. We should all be thankful to the author Peter Calamatta and his collaborators for this gift and I hope that its readers will be enticed to consult fully the biblical passages to which it refers to bear the fruit of the faith that St Paul brought us from Israel and transplanted on this L-Art Ħelwa.
- His Eminence Cardinal Prospero Grech OSA
"What a first class surprise this book has been for me. The presentation of each plant is well illustrated and supported with biblical references and excellent photography. I do appreciate the insertion of the Maltese equivalent of the plants mentioned. Peter, this book is your best work yet and will prove to be an original biblical treasure. The article by Fr Stefan Attard is an excellent academic piece of work for its contents, biblical references and style. It has covered the biblical reflections in a lucid, clear and scientific method."
- Mons Charles G. Vella, Founder Cana Movement
"This book by Peter Calamatta, doyen of horticulture, is such a fresh and novel approach. In marrying the plant world with the Bible and the Malta scenario, the author shares his wide knowledge and experience with ease, style, clean and appeal, thus offering a wealth of material which is a pleasure to read, appreciate and ponder upon. Definitely Peter Calamatta at his best."
- Dr Philip Farrugia Randon, Knight of Malta Grand Cross, President of The St John's Co-Cathedral Foundation
"The link between this book by Peter Calamatta and the Millenium Chapel is very fundemantal - they both refer to a local reality and both are seeking the glory of God. The book "Maltese Plants in The Bible" is an original and creative publication that forms the link between the WORD of GOD and nature in tracing the references made to plants that grow in the Holy Land as well as in Malta in THE HOLY BIBLE."
