Author Susan Bailey signed her book “Above All” during the 75th Frankfurt Book Fair

The 75th Frankfurter Buchmesse, the largest trade show for books, was held every year in Frankfurt, Germany. For worldwide business and trading, it is regarded as the most significant book fair on earth.

The Frankfurt Book Fair celebrated its 75th anniversary, celebrating literary and cultural diversity. With a series of activities prepared, one of the most anticipated this year is the chosen country to be the guest of honor, which is Slovenia. The country will present not just its diverse, unique qualities as an attractive place to travel but also as a country with a rich literary tradition.

This year, Citi of Books joined the largest book fair in the world. We were excited to present books written by our distinguished authors. In our booth, one of the authors who were invited to sign hundreds of copies of their book was Susan Bailey, the author of “Above All.”

“Above All” is an extensive exploration and expansion of the themes found in Psalm 22. This psalm delves into the deep connection Christ had with God at his birth, the apparent betrayal he experienced during his earthly mission, and the glorious outcomes that arise from his suffering. The author skillfully combines references from both the Old Testament and New Testament along with their creative imagination to craft a narrative about God’s loving purpose for humanity, the plan for redemption from the fall, and, above all, the fulfillment of that redemption.

“Above All” also offers insights into the reasons behind the wicked and terrible events that occur daily in the world and provides an explanation for why God does not always intervene. The story commences by imagining the thoughts of Jesus while he is on the cross at Calvary, and it places the reader in the role of a spectator, allowing them to witness what Jesus perceives, experiences, and does, starting from his time in the Garden of Gethsemane to the following three days after his crucifixion.
