This book is the English edition of my German book "Reise durch das Alte Testament" (ISBN 978-3-9815308-0-3). Both books were published in January 2013. The Journey is an annotated storybook with texts from the first part of the Old Testament, the Five Books of Moses, and illustrations covering more than 2000 years of Christian and Jewish art.
It was first and foremost written for all those who always wanted to get to know the biblical texts but never really got into it. Maybe the remote language made you shrink back or the seemingly obsolete content with apparently no connection to your own life. Therefore, since understanding the texts is not self-evident, I inserted commentaries alongside the selected stories. The commentaries are based upon insights of current academic theology. And to get our children going, too, I added easy-to read explanations alongside the pictures. You’ll find more than 120 masterpieces of art in this book in beautiful print! The texts are excerpts from different Standard English translations of the Bible.
Since my plan is to give you a thorough introduction to all books of the Bible, I had to divide my bible project into several volumes. This book is volume one and contains the Five Books of Moses, the Torah. It underlines the necessity for Christians to have a sound knowledge of the Old Testament. The New is based upon the Old!
So far, I have not been able, to upload a preview of my book in epub; instead you could visit my homepage (www.bibleandart-publishinghouse.com) and you’ll find sample readings to download if you navigate to the information on “The first book” (scroll down to the bottom).
So, I would be very happy if this book could help opening up the biblical treasures for you – in a fresh, unbiased and transparent way, written by a Catholic and ecumenical Christian!

Global youth unemployment stands at 12.7% and is expected to rise. Presently, more than half of the 7 billion people alive are under the age of 30; almost half of the world's population is under the age of 25. In the Arab world, an average 27.5 percent of the total youth population is unemployed. Youth unemployment in both the Eurozone and in the United States, the world's largest regional and national economy, respectively, is more than twice that of the rest of the population. What do people from these regions have to say about these trends?
Much work and research regarding the millennial generation is very American-centric. But for a globally-connected and aware generation, limiting the scope of study to a single country misses the mark for such a diverse global demographic. The writers hope to fill some of that geography gap with this book. [close]

Cousins Coleman and Dinah Greene mov…more
Cousins Coleman and Dinah Greene moved from North Carolina to New York after college to make their mark on the art world: Coleman is the editor of an influential arts magazine and Dinah is the owner of a print gallery in Greenwich Village. But their challenges are mounting as one of Coleman's writers is discovered selling story ideas to a competitor and The Greene Gallery is in the red because sales are down.
When billionaire Heyward Bain arrives with a glamorous assistant, announcing plans to fund a fine print museum, Coleman is intrigued and plans to get to know Bain and publish an article about him. Dinah hopes to sell him enough prints to save her gallery. At the same time, swindlers, attracted by Bain’s lavish spending, invade the print world to grab some of his money.
When a print dealer dies in peculiar circumstances, Coleman is suspicious, but she can’t persuade the NYPD crime investigator of a connection between the dealer’s death and Bain’s buying spree. After one of Coleman’s editors is killed and Coleman is attacked, the police must acknowledge the connection, and Coleman becomes even more determined to discover the truth about Bain. In an unforgettable final scene, Coleman risks her life to expose the last deception threatening her, her friends, and the formerly tranquil print world. [close]
