This book is different than other books in its field – a parable that guides the reader through one person’s life to enlightenment…or something like that. The concept is simple and a fresh approach to dealing with “self-help.”
Disclaimer: this book is intended for Christian audiences. The book looks at the violence of the Christian Old Testament and tries to argue for a fulfillment in Jesus, giving a future status of nonviolence. To accomplish this, the author first highlights the score of violent episodes found in Torah.
This book gives a mysterious tale wrapped in riddles. While enjoyable at times, much like the cavern scene in The Hobbit, the unfortunate circumstance in this case is the reader’s connection to the narrator, in which it reads much like a manuscript discovered, with the riddles saved for the audience.
