Would you dare open it? Few books may be said to be truly great, even fewer regarded as dangerous. For millennia the Hebrew Bible has stirred debate, dissension, war, love, cruelty and hope. Men have gone to their deaths with its words on their lips, while believers have fought through all adversity because of its meaning.
Poets have marvelled at its passionate and sensual images; scholars have been left in awe by the scope of its tales; while ordinary men and women have found comfort and courage in its bare, honest accounts of tragedy and restoration.
Is it any wonder that it has been called “The Book of Books?”
