Format: Paperback
Bonnie Gaunt is a mathematician and theologian who in Beginnings: The Sacred Design presents a fascinating and informative study on the Sacred Geometry of Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid, and other structures of ancient time. Of particular interest is her presentation on how the process of photosynthesis reveals the sacred design common to such antiquarian edifices , the Bible's number code (gematria) with respect to the "sacred design", and more. Beginnings: The Sacred Design is an impressive, challenging, informative, occasionally controversial, very welcome contribution to metaphysics and the eloquent designs of creation as employed and exemplified by the inspired builders of antiquity.

As if the Bible didn't have enough messages, people have long looked for hidden secrets in it. This isn't about the "Bible codes" (see Who Wrote the Bible Code? : A Physicist Probes the Current Controversy) which has been largely abandoned by most rational people. Gaunt focuses on gematria which is the fact that each Greek and Hebrew letter has a corresponding number. She theorizes that the gematria of key terms and verses in the Bible point to numbers in the design of the universe. Why would God bother with such obscure coding? Good question, but on the other hand He put signs of design in DNA and cells that was only recently detectable (see The Cell's Design: How Chemistry Reveals the Creator's Artistry and Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design).

While Gaunt goes through great pains to show links between the Bible's and nature's numbers, it's not always convincing. Take the Earth's diameter she uses in one example. One can find differing figures, and depending on rounding, one can get different results. The ancients often did round numbers for ease, so is Gaunt right or not? Sometimes? Her one number for Jesus she says is the latitude for Bethelham, but a look on a map finds a slightly different one. Did she bother to check? Some have suggested that the continental shift in 2000 years accounts for the change. Possibly.

Format: Paperback
Beginnings: The Sacred Design it a very rare book. It focuses mainly on Hebrew and Greek gematria and how it connects to the universe, structures and other areas. Although I myself am not religious at all I did like the way the book was written and found it to be easy to understand. The chapter list is as follows:-
Foreword

1. Beginnings
2. The Conflict of Genesis One
3. The Case for a Designer
4. The Formula for Creation
5. Let There be Light
6. Creation and the Golden Proportion
7. The Sound of Music
8. Three Witnesses
9. A New Beginning
Appendix 1
Appendix 2

Even though this book is not a long book it is still a very worth while read and covers some topics that I have not seen in other books, such as gematria in relation to atoms. I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in gematria, weather they are new to the subject or not.
Very good book.

Even if you are an atheist you might find this book fascinating. I am not exactly a christian like the author but I was truly inspired by the research this book contains. One could argue that some of her findings do not necessarily support Christianity any more than Judaism or Islam or others. She doesn't make a full-proof case for intelligent design but if nothing else this book could be very inspiring to artists and fiction writers. With that said, I do believe in a Supreme Being and some of the content in this book is absolutely chilling.

Everything by Bonnie Gaunt is amazing. She shows how God used numbers too actually digitally sign the bible and his universe.
