Until The Burning Bush no Bible commentary had incorporated the remarkable spiritual insights of anthroposophy. Now, Edward Reaugh Smith combines his own extensive knowledge of traditional biblical scholarship with years of concentrated study of hundreds of Steiner titles. The result is, for the first time ever, a Bible commentary informed by anthroposophical insight.
Because of its radical newness, The Burning Bush, as an introductory volume to a complete series, deviates from the normal commentary mode, presenting a series of essays on terms and phrases of critical importance to a deeper comprehension of the biblical message. It includes an extensive bibliography of Steiner's works as well as numerous charts, diagrams, and cross-references, making this a tremendously valuable research tool.
Edward Reaugh Smith's lifelong search for the deeper meaning of the Bible (which he taught for over twenty-five years before discovering the writings of Steiner) expresses itself in this work.

The Burning Bush is essential reading for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of the Bible. This large volume combines the author's own life-long search for the deeper meaning of the Bible with the discoveries of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy (The Wisdom of Man). The book unveils what people have had to believe only through faith. In a series of penetrating essays the author explains such mysteries and seeming contradictions as the accounts of the Nativity, the nature of the Second Coming, and the meaning of the Burning Bush.
