  1. Don’t really understand (on page. 16) that Gandhi, Mandela, King, and Gorbachive are historical alternatives to be Bible cast? Though, I guess it’s a fair interpretation. 😦


  2. Laban was Rebekah’s brother – Genesis 27:43.
    Deuteronomy 29 speaks of the Book of Teachings & Deuteronomy 31:9 states Moses wrote the Book of Teachings.
    In Mark 12:26, when Jesus answered the Sadducees, Jesus says: “Surely you have read what God said about people rising from the dead IN THE BOOK IN WHICH MOSES WROTE about the burning bush (reference note to Exodus 3:1-12 in the Old Testament)” Most Bible references refer to Moses writing down the 1st 5 books of the Bible.


  3. This is not what I expected this book’s perspective to be – in fact it is a 180 degrees from that. The only thing that the introduction & 1st chapter have been successful in, is to force me to “break silence”.
