The core message of all Biblical texts – in one volume

The beginning of a book can be tricky! If it is good the reader is its prey, for once caught up in the first pages we cannot put the book down. What is true of modern literature also holds true of the books of the Bible: their beginnings have the potential to make the entire scripture accessible.

Fifty notable bible scholars have opened up this potential. Starting off with the beginnings of the books, this volume offers vivid insights into all the 73 books of the Bible. Thus the central themes of the biblical canon are made clear and comprehensible. This is a work that opens the Bible to us, not only as a religious treasure trove but also as a unique part of our cultural heritage.
