It tells how the Bible was created, how it became a best-selling book and the effects it had on those who encountered it. Through a discussion of democracy and literacy, learning and communication this book shows how the Bible is, above all, about freedom and why Gandhi described God's book as containing enough dynamite to blow all civilisation to pieces.

And that is exactly how people have used it over the years - for good and ill.
