Josef Imbach, Dr. theol., born 1945, is a publicist, author of various theological books and lecturer at the Senior University of Lucerne. From 1975 to 2002 he was full professor for fundamental theology and border issues between literature and theology at the Pontifical Theological Faculty of St. Bonaventure in Rome. From 2005 to 2010 he taught Catholic theology at the Theological Faculty of the University of Basel.
Does the truth of the Bible exist indeed, when this book is at the same time full of contradictions, miracles and mysteries? Josef Imbach pursues this question by examining the holy scriptures, biblical authors and the tradition. Imbach is certain that biblical texts can only be understood when the reader is aware not only of the intentions of the authors, but also of the historical, religious-historical and cultural conditions that underlie them. Concise, informative and always with a pinch of humor.
