Why buy a book
The Holy Scripture is undoubtedly one of the principal books of humanity; many languages developed their written forms with the sole purpose of printing the Bible in the native tongue of the people.
The Old and the New Testaments are important parts of our cultural heritage and key documents for historians and linguists.
No other books compare with the Bible in dealing with the topic of love. Love is patient, love is kind, love never fails. Without it, we are nothing. The biblical words about love have been inspiring and transforming the humankind for several millennia.
It is also a book about searching for life’s senses, both personal and universal.
One could spend hours meditating on illustrations that are rich in meaning or enjoying the atmosphere of old times which envelops the reader from the first pages and holds till the last.
