The Christian Bible was written for everyone. However, many people nowadays are undecided about the Bible. Is the Bible still worth reading? We would like to answer this question. The result is the founding of our publishing house and our first two books. And hopefully there will be more to come in the future.
We would like to prepare the way for a newly founded faith which remains strong in spite of all the current crises in the church and in our faith. We can draw deep inspiration in our personal lives from the Christian Bible which has two parts, but is ONE book. If we understand what we believe and why our relationship to God is important, we will become immune to the temptation of indifference.
The logo of our publishing house is the “burning bush”. The story of the burning bush is told in the Book of Exodus. Here God reveals Himself to Moses, the great prophet of Israel. God tells Moses what He wants to be called and how He wants to be viewed. The story of the burning bush, which burns without being consumed, expresses the paradoxical nature of God who is close yet simultaneously distant. In the fire of His thorns, He escapes human capture, yet, at the same time, He is invisibly there and warms with the power of His “fire”.
Thus, the symbol of the burning bush stands for the polyphonic concept of God which underlies our book. It visualizes what we would like to attain, namely, to strike a spark where all seems absent and to illuminate the biblical texts anew, where they seem to have been lost in the dark. Just as the fire calls for respect, we want to carefully consider God and constantly keep in mind that we can never capture the mystery of God in words.
