Start your review of Cracking the Bible Code Write a review Shelves: christianity , judaism , mysticism , numerology , paranormal , prophecy Target audience: Common people, anyone interested to evade in the mysticism surrounding the Torah; I dont think any serious scholar can be interested in the content of this book.
The book advances the existence of a code in the first five books of the Bible the Torah. He is known for books on a number of controversial topics in physics and neuroscience, and on religion, but especially for his writing and public-policy efforts relating to homosexuality, same-sex marriage and the ex-gay movement.
Structure of the book: Around pages, divided in 14 chapters, an epilogue and 3 appendixes. Overview: Simply said, this book, like all the other books about bible codes, are a waste of time. Despite the fact that the author says that his work was done in a scientific manner and he discovered something equal to the Holy Grail, the concept of a Bible code in itself is simply insulting common sense.
Are authors that desperate for money nowadays? All of these books on so-called Bible codes that all just happen to "predict" events after they happen, or just "happen" to find words that support the fallacies of the bumper crop of megaselling would-be Bible interpreters, are laughable. This book in particular jumps around not only from year to year, but from century to century and millenium to millenium. It appears to me that the author felt like it was imperative that he include every scintilla of information he had unearthed in his research, no matter how trivial to the big scheme of the story each tidbit may have been.
Moreover, the book has even some factual errors: on page it states that Max Planck developed his theory in when he was 19 years old. Max Karl Ernst Planck was born on April 23, He developed his theory in , when he was Then, as a Jew, the author praises the mystical nature of the Torah and suggests that this is a proof it was inspired by God. By doing this he dismisses the New Testament and the foundation of Christianity.
For example, II Peter says in part, "no prophesy of scripture is of any private interpretation," Psalm says, "The unfolding of Thy words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple," "I have more insight than all my teachers, for Thy testimonies are my meditation" Psalm , "The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple" Psalm I can only say that humans persist in looking for some special message "just for me" and tossing out anything they find inconvenient.
I am sorry but anyone who runs around proclaiming "My god is bigger than your god and I have the right to kill anyone who disagrees" is getting it wrong. Strong points: The subject is fascinating and stimulates imagination. Despite the subject treated, I think anyone can read it. Weaknesses: The subject is also too commercial and cheesy. To me, the books about Bible codes are desperate attempts to take our money. After all, if God loves us all, why bother inserting codes and other craps in the holy texts?
To be found only by a few? Honestly, at the end of the book you feel like a big waste of time. Nothing certain, only cheap speculations after cheap speculations. No essence, only junk.
