In clear and concise fashion, A Companion to the Bible provides explanation of many terms and key themes within the Bible. Grounding the definitions with textual references, Jean-Jacques von Allmen enriches our theological understanding by concentrating on a limited number of longer articles with abundant cross-referencing. This approach allows for a greater depth in knowledge for all readers.
Written in an accessible style, this book is for layfolk and scholars alike. As von Allmen himself writes, the book’s aim is to facilitate this ‘one thing needful’ – to encounter, through Holy Scripture, Jesus Christ the Word of God.
