R. Edwin Sherman is a nationally known consulting mathematician and has advised numerous large financial institutions, Fortune 500 companies, and government agencies. He holds an M.A. in mathematics from the University of California at San Diego and is deeply committed to the objective examination of the phenomenon of Bible codes, apart from the advocacy of any particular religious viewpoint.

More About the Author

R. Edwin Sherman is a Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society (F.C.A.S.) and a Member of the American Academy of Actuaries (M.A.A.A.). [Actuaries use probability and statistical analysis to help manage self-insurance programs and insurance companies.] He has advised numerous large financial institutions, Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. Prior to heading his own consulting firm, for seven years he was a Principal at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the world's largest accounting and consulting firm.

Mr. Sherman is the founder of the Isaac Newton Bible Code Research Society. The Society's website (www.biblecodedigest.com) is the number one Bible code resource on the Internet. A Christian since 1972, Mr. Sherman is deeply committed to the impartial examination of the phenomenon of Bible codes. He works with a research team that includes two Hebrew experts, one an agnostic Jew, the other an orthodox Jew.

Mr. Sherman received a B.A. (with Highest Honors) and an M.A. (with High Honors) in Mathematics from the University of California at San Diego. He passed Ph.D. qualifying exams in probability, statistics, real and complex analysis before leaving graduate school to become an actuary. He has authored two prize-winning professional papers and over 70 articles in trade publications devoted to risk management and business insurance.

Mr. Sherman's articles have appeared in Decision (1998) and Moody (1997). In the late 1980s he played a major role in starting a Rick Warren-style church in Marin County, California.

Substantive and Captivating

BIBLE CODES: myth, mystery, maybe, meaningful? Which are they? And what do modern day individuals, such as Hitler, Rabin, Einstein, Clinton, Brokaw, bin Laden and Hussein, plus current countries Iran, North Korea, Iraq, Libya, and Russia have to do with Bible Codes? Ed Sherman, mathematician with 30 years of experience in probability, statistical analyses, and consulting with Fortune 500 companies, undertakes this daunting task of answering those questions in his book, 'Bible Code Bombshell', after six years of scientific research on this topic. This is a substantive book on an intriguing and highly controversial subject. The skeptic, curious, and serious students on this topic should have their interest piqued with the thoroughness, reliability, and credibility of the author's research, documentation, presentation, and unequivocal conclusions. Although the author is a mathematician, he has wisely relegated the math to appendices at the end, making it an easy-to-read book. It addresses the most commonly asked questions about Bible codes on the basis of five years of intensive scientific research. The research team includes a Jewish agnostic, who is a retired professor of mathematics and physics and a part time Hebrew teacher. The process of systematically extracting encoded messages has produced a wealth of reliable results that have withstood the test of rigorous scientific analyses, including a companion search in the Hebrew text of 'War and Peace', as a control for comparison. What adds credibility to these claims is that some of these ELSs are quite lengthy, and much of the related information appears tightly packed together as in a crossword puzzle, sometimes appearing as a cross. The longer the string (encoded message), the less likely it is coincidental.

Did you know that the Bible codes are one of the most controversial areas of scientific research? The reason why may be surprising to you; and Bible Code Bombshell addresses behind-the-scene motivations for the shrill language on the part of detractors. In reality, what matters most is whether the current level of code findings are statistically significant. This book provides tangible, repeatable, and incredibly long code findings made up of sentences. I recommend this book as a must-have book for anyone interested in the Bible codes.

Bible code critics DID have a point concerning books from 5-10 years ago, which provided simplistic codes with terms made up of single words. That simplistic level of code findings is repeatable in lengthy texts in any language. Bible Code Bombshell dispels the critics' arguments (which also include pastors and rabbis who promote a limited view of God and the Bible) by showing ELS terms that are phrases and sentences. These findings are statistically significant; but that level of significance is only half the equation. Significant Bible code findings must also make sense. Bible Code Bombshell provides findings that satisfy both the significance test and common sense test. The skeptics/critics have now been largely disproven, based on this new level of code findings. However, it is unfortunate that many people have listened to the outmoded findings of the last century, and have based their opinions of the Bible code on false arguments that are widely bandied about. For that reason alone, Bible Code Bombshell deserves a read by anyone seriously inquiring into the Bible code itself. Don't be a "flat earther", find out how fast and far the Bible codes have traveled down the path of serious inquiry.

Format: Paperback
Bible Code bombshell: Compelling Evidence That GOD Authored The Bible by R. Edwin Sherman is the single best book on Bible codes, by a long shot. It is a sober, scientific, and statistical look at Bible Codes. Sherman makes NO attempt to be sensational, except in reporting the facts. NOW the facts themselves are sensational (this is mathematical proof of the existence of God that is far beyond a reasonable doubt). In the world of Bible codes, some bad unscientific work has gotten out there and has brought much disrepute on to Bible codes, and that is truly terrible. Hear Sherman takes on those bad works dividing between what they got right and what they got wrong and also takes on the critics of Bible codes as well. Sherman goes on to shows some amazing clusters of Long BIBLE CODES that defy being accidental. This is a Great book for anyone interested in Bible codes, for anyone who has dismissed Bible codes and even for anyone, it might very well lead many to find God.

91 of 102 people found the following review helpful By STEPHEN T. McCARTHY on August 13, 2005
Format: Paperback
As of this date, I have posted on Amazon, 74 Reviews, 24 "So You'd Like To..." Guides, and 18 Listmania Lists. Now let's imagine, just for the sake of argument, that in reading through my Amazon "stuff" you happened to notice that the word "dog" appeared in one form or another in virtually everything I'd posted - all 74 Reviews, all 24 Guides, and all 18 Lists. Would you accept that this might have occurred by SIMPLE CHANCE? Or would you be convinced that it was indicative of a deliberate design?

If you answered "possibly SIMPLE CHANCE", then there is a strong "CHANCE" that you, my dear friend, are rather "SIMPLE" in mind...not that there's anything wrong with that. But I have some marvelous business opportunities I'd like to discuss with you!

Well, the hidden equidistant letter sequence (E.L.S.) codes that are illuminated in 'BIBLE CODE BOMBSHELL' are astronomically more indicative of intelligent design than even the ubiquitous "dog" hypothesis I fabricated above. For example : Isaiah, chapter 53, from the Bible's Old Testament (documented to have existed at least 100 years before the birth of Christ, and more likely about 700 years prior) is a prophecy concerned with the coming of a Suffering Servant who would atone for the sins of mankind. Cloaked within that chapter at equidistant letter sequences are over 1,600 encoded references to Jesus, etc. Included are phrases such as "HE OFFENDED. THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS. HE IS RISEN INDEED." / "AND IN HIS NAME, AS HE COMMANDED, JESUS IS THE WAY." / "AND WHERE ARE THEY? THE SANHEDRIN IS FINISHED." / "FATHER, THE ASCENSION OF JESUS IS HEAVENLY." / "GOD WILL HAVE HIS OWN DAY." / "JESUS THE GIFT IS MASTER AND MY LORD." / "WONDER! JESUS IS THE TRUTH." / "JESUS IS SALVATION." / "MARY IS THE MOTHER OF GOD.
