I took the chance to review this book because I thought it would be interesting to view and or study this amazing story from a different point of view.
Although the book is very well written, I found myself giving up half way through. I don’t know if it’s because I can’t have a TOTALLY OPEN mind when it comes to looking at a story from the Bible in a different view, or if it’s just to hard of a story to grasp.
I don’t believe that God intended this story to be told in any other way then what it is. It is this story that divides many religions, but I choose to believe the Bible as TRUTH and that’s that.
A very well written book, to far of a stretch for this little town Christian. LOL.
