Every time I read another one of this woman’s books, I am more awed by the amount of work that has gone into it, and I hope that someday she gets all the credit she deserves for all that she has done.
Having once been a member of a Fundamentalist church that demanded that you spend a lot of time studying the Bible, I am quite familiar with its contents. But this book caused me to re-examine everything I had ever learned about it and look at it in an entirely different way. This is good. I needed to. The research of ancient history and comparison of various accounts of happenings all over the world with those described in the Bible must have taken hours and hours of painstaking study and research. But in the end, the author has drawn some of the most astute, logical and intelligent conclusions I have ever seen.
Her observations about New Age thought and beliefs were particularly helpful to me. Having left Fundamentalism many years ago, I became a New Ager. Over time I began to feel something was lacking there also, something just not quite right, but I wasn’t exactly sure what it was. She made me realize that New Age thinking is another area of confusion and error rather than enlightenment and that it contains fallacies that could be deadly to those who adopt New Age ideas without careful analysis and examination of what they really mean.
All in all another Masterpiece by this brilliant woman. I’m just glad that she decided to share what she has learned with the rest of us.
