Open Bibles


                    The purpose of this section is to list works which make good the deficit alluded to in the following quotation:
                     The Interpretation of Your Bibles
     “That which you need on Earth is the interpretation of your Bibles, and of all the Scriptures which contain the hidden wisdom, the mystery of which St. Paul so often speaks as existing from the foundation of the world. (As in Romans 16:25)” [A Message to Earth. Edited by Edward Maitland. p. 69]
