This book is a wonderful way to learn more about God, his miracles and more. This is not meant to be a quick read through but rather a book to study, devour, and learn. It is a good reference book and can bring you closer to God as you learn more about His personality.
This would be an excellent addition to add to any library for those wanting to learn more about God Himself. There are commentaries within the pages by bible scholars and the book includes archaeological images of excavation findings of biblical events. For me this was a huge perk to the book. There's nothing like seeing the evidence for yourself. I do wish it would have been in color, but just to see the archaeological findings was amazing.
This book delves into God's various names and titles and brings a light onto some of God's character that you may overlook when reading His Words.
You can definitely tell the author has done extensive research and she words things in an easy to understand manner, not making you feel lost or confused. This book better explains all of the parables as well. I have been using this book along with my bible, but this book can definitely do well as a stand alone.
There are some points mentioned I did not agree with such as God destroying and re-creating the earth after the angels fell, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. The rest of the book is incredibly well researched, well written, and a great tool to learn more about God.
