When John Hull went blind in middle age he realized that the Bible was written by sighted people. This book is a result of his gradual learning to begin a new conversation with the Bible – this time, as a blind person. It is mainly addressed to sighted people who, generally speaking, do not realize that they have a specific interpretation of the world. They just accept the world as a sighted world, because that is their experience. The book is however also intended for blind readers who, like the author, have passed beyond the light and are wondering where God is in the darkness.
