Not On Our Shelves - Available to Order


Since my 1st Edition print in 2012, the MSB has become a very bulky book.

The single book size of the 11th Edition exceeds 1200 pages, so, our Print on Demand Ingram publishers would in future print 3 Separate Volumes of approximately 500 pages each.

This is the First of our set of 3 Volume Formats:

Volume 1 is dedicated to Dr Luke
Luke's brilliant account of the Life of Jesus - The Gospel of Luke
& the 1st 9 chapters with commentary of his account of the Acts of the apostles

My philosophy in doing the Mirror Bible is reflected in the following example:

I do not read music, but have often witnessed our son, Stefan, approach a new piece on the piano.

His eyes see so much more than mere marks scribbled on a page;

he hears the music.

His trained mind engages even the subtleties and the nuances of the original composition, and is able to repeat the authentic sound,

knowing that the destiny of the music would never be reduced to the page;

but is always in the next moment,

where the same intended beauty is heard

and repeated again

The best translation would always be the incarnation

I so value the enormity of the revelation of the incarnation.

Yet, before flesh, the Word was προς

face to face with God

And fragile text

scribbled thru the ages in memoirs of stone, parchment and papyrus pages -

carrying eternity in thought

and continues to translate faith

to faith

Now we have the same spirit of faith as he encountered when he wrote...

"I believe

and so I speak "

Conversation ignites

"Did not our hearts burn within our being when He spoke familiar text of ancient times, in the voices of Moses and the prophets and David and Abraham,

who saw his day

and announced its dawn in our hearts

The mystery that was hidden for ages and generations

is now revealed

In dealing daily with ancient text,

rediscovering thoughts buried in time, I am often overwhelmed and awed at the magnificence of eternity captured in little time capsules,

opening vistas of beauty beyond our imagination- face to face with the same face to faceness of the Logos

and God

and us - conceived in their dream

And irresistibly intrigued by the invitation to come and drink -

to taste and see -

from the source -

and to hear a saint reminiscing and reminding himself of the utterance of another earth dweller-brother, David, who wrote a song 1000 years ago,

"Return to your rest, oh my soul

For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you

I believe and so I speak "

And with fresh wounds bleeding from the many angry blows he was dealt with, Paul echoes,

"We have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, 'I believe and so I speak ' We too believe and so we speak "

Let's celebrate the "sameness" of Jesus

yesterday - yes, as far as history and beyond time can go -

and today This very finite, fragile moment -

plus, the infinite future

Inexhaustible, beyond boundaries and the confines of space and time
