Dig deep into the plain meaning of the Bible’s stories and commandments

Would you like to know what the Old Testament (Pentateuch) is all about from a Jewish point of view? This book reveals the morals, ethics, and ideas behind the stories and commandments of one of the oldest books in the history of mankind – a book that serves as the foundation of Jewish and Christian religion. Given the difficult Hebrew in which the Old Testament was written and how challenging it is to translate and to explain, the author wanted to offer to the reader the simple meaning of the text (p’shat) in accessible and friendly language.

The Book of Genesis is opened before you – from a Jewish perspective

The series includes 5 books: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Book 1, Genesis tells the stories of the Creation, the Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark, the three patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) and their families, and their journey from Canaan to Egypt.

 

I have to say that I never expected I would read a book like To Know Torah – I’m not Jewish, I don’t really know anyone who is Jewish personally, and while religion has always interested me up to some point, I didn’t think I would one day explore the Book of Genesis, and from a Jewish perspective at that.

In this book, Dr. Ephraim Chamiel exlains how to approach the Torah from this perspective, it explains the morals and ethics behind the stories in Genesis, and how to interpret the ancient Hebrew language in which it was originally written.

It’s an intriguing read, especially for people interested in religion or broadening their own world view. It’s a book you need to take your time for, and rather than rushing through the pages to get through the end as soon as possible, readers should take the time to let it all sink in.

Book Review: The Truth About White Supremacy, Sexism and Minc Control in America by A.L. Bryant

Title: The Truth About White Supremacy, Sexism and Mind Control in America
Author: A.L. Bryant
Genre: Religion, Spirituality & New Age
Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Take a journey through America to unearth the truths behind white supremacy and sexism in society. Delve into the deepest and most fascinating secrets behind racism and sexism—the secrets they do not want you to know and may not realize.

Examine the origins and progression of racism, sexism, relationships in America, and the science and psychology behind what is real and what is an illusion. Discover how mind control is the weapon of choice to keep certain groups in power and others in the dark and oppressed. This book gives different perspectives from the physical to the metaphysical.

Finally, we explore astonishing revelations about why we are here, who we are, and how to heal and evolve to a higher spiritual level. Explore the mind-blowing revelations and proven facts that will challenge the way you think about people, life, and the universe.

Though this book focuses on America, its breathtaking discoveries can be applied everywhere, and with anyone around the world.

The Truth About White Supremacy, Sexism and Mind Control in America is an interesting, well-researched read that really opens your eyes to things you might otherwise miss, or take for granted. Societies all suffer from elitism, from supremacy, and at least from some forms of sexism. Same goes for America, and it’s an interesting journey into America’s history to find out the origins and progression of these forces.

Why are certain groups of people in positions of power – always? Why are other groups of people oppressed? How can we acknowledge this oppression, become aware of it, and ultimately, stop it?

I didn’t agree with everything the book said, and felt some criticism toward some points made, but overall, I quite enjoyed the book and I felt like I learned a lot reading it.

Book Review: Telos – From Theory to Practice by Ayelet Segal

Title: Telos – From Theory to Practice
Author: Ayelet Segal
Genre: Nonfiction, Mysticism, Self-Help
Age Group: Adult
Rating: 3 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Journey on a delicate frequency of love and harmony to Telos, city of light
The journey to Telos requires absolute faith and a true bond with the Sacred Heart. Only a delicate frequency of love and harmony will sustain peace in the Middle East. Our connection to each other and the common cause unified forces for the creation of Telos, the city of light. Over the years we have developed a full network of life below the surface of the earth, based on light, love, and vibrations of energy from the Supreme Creator.
Discover enlightening and true awakening beneath the earth’s surface!
We invite you on a journey of awakening, departure, and action. Hear about enlightenment in the Middle East and why we must enliven the light entities who are now awakening to the Lemurian energy of love that exists worldwide. I, Adama, High Priest of the light people in Telos, believe it is critically important to raise the vibrations across the globe. Area inhabitants, arise and realize that there is only one way to ascend. True awakening is through the heart!

In Telos – From Theory to Practice: A Voyage on the Way to Ascension, the reader learns about a journey of awakening, of departure and actoin through Adama, High Priest of the light people in Telos. The goal is peace in the Middle East, maybe even across the globe, which will be accomplished through people’s connections with one another. A network has been established below the surface of the earth based on light, love and energy vibrations, and this will awaken a worldwide energy bringing love and peace and awakening to all.

I’m not much of a believer. I’m interested in religions and belief systems, but I’m not particularly convinced of anything, not even the existence of a positive, worldwide energy–although I sure realize we could use some of that. I usually don’t mind spirituality books, but this book was a little too far-stretched for me to truly enjoy. While the message in its core was pure, when I hear terms like “high priest” and so on, I often cringe, because I don’t believe that, in terms of religion and spirituality in particular, one person could stand higher than another.

The values the book promotes are worthy of being promoted, though, so I’m giving points for that. The writing isn’t bad either. It just wasn’t for me, and I cringed more often than I would’ve wanted to.

Vision: Seeing is Achieving is an interesting eye-opener of a book, talking about the vision of your heart, and how you can turn it into a future you can create. It talks about one’s own personal power, the power of our mind, and the strength that comes with finding a purpose.

The book asks a lot of intriguing questions, such as: what is man? which happens to be one of the first chapters. It’s a spiritual book, that deals both with divine purpose, but also with more earthly purposes, and how can accomplish our divine purpose here on earth. It’s an interesting read, the chapters are short and to the point but easy to understand and interesting. The writing is excellent, and once you start reading, it’s hard to put down.

Book Review: Incarnational Wonder by Danny Kinane

9781742845487_Cover_FrontTitle: Incarnational Wonder
Author: Danny Kinane
Genre: Religion / Spirituality
Age Group: Adult
Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon

 Incarnational Wonder, even though written in old age and through a bout of severe sickness, has been very revealing on a personal level. Its writing has brought me to a clarity, more than a conviction of mind, something deeper, of what it means to be a human being, at the heart of which is spirituality. Its main focus is to, initially, isolate spiritually and see it what it really is: the bedrock not only of personal reality, humanity, but indeed of all reality. This foundation is found not so much in sacred documents such as the Bible or the Quran or in churches dogmatic teachings but in the human spirit itself in its everyday dialogue through experience. Experience is at the heart of the book, an in-built director of where our lives are going – and why and how. Academic disciplines such as theology and biblical studies take a secondary role. Today’s spirituality is saying to us we must find meaning within ourselves, our own spirits, if we are to thrive in, and indeed survive, modern life.

Spirituality is often lacking in nowadays’ busy life, filled with plans and scheduling and what not. We often don’t find time for it anymore. Heck, we barely find time for religion and sometimes spirituality goes deeper than that.

Incarnational Wonder is an inspiring read about what it means to be human, our own spirituality, who we are, as persons, as a species. The book focuses heavily on experience, our interaction with other people.

Despite that, the book doesn’t come across as preachy and it’s written in a down-to-earth style, which I found uplifting and inspiring. The message is certainly a hopeful one, and might allow the reader to find deeper meaning in their lives.

Author Bio

I came to Australia as a migrant from Ireland in 1973 to teach high school; as it turned out in both Victoria and Queensland. After five rather demanding years I decided to return to a previous interest and concern and eventually became a priest in the Catholic Church in North Queensland. This became an interesting and varied experience over the next twenty years, especially as a priest in the North-west of the state, so different from the urban areas of the east coast in its spiritual needs. But the main message over those twenty years emerged clear and powerfully: religion was dying because its spiritual base was so inadequate. I eventually retired from the church to spend my twilight years living a more contemplative lifestyle in the southern Queensland bush. I also began to write. “Incarnational Wonder” is my fourth book.
