The cover of the Bible, like most of the art-work inside, is primarily to facilitate prayerful reflection. A careful observation will reveal that in it a prominent place has been given to the Holy Trinity. Following Christian tradition, the Father is symbolized here by the large OPEN EYE, the Son by the CROSS and the Holy Spirit by the DOVE.
In the ever-revolving circle and communion of love that is the Trinity, a special place is occupied by God’s people, THE NEW COMMUNITY, which our cover shows as the ‘apple of God’s eye’. The heart and hub of this community, giving it life, unity and cohesion, is the FLAME of God’s Word – the Bible.
