About the Author

Stanislaw Kapuscinski, (aka Stan I.S. Law) an architect, sculptor and prolific writer, was educated in Poland and England. A refugee from Poland at 13, then at 33, having overcome numerous difficulties, he began his search for the secret of life. Now, he is a successful writer, happily married for 25 years, with an assured future. His special interests cover a broad spectrum of arts, sciences and philosophy. At times he seeks inspiration in the Peruvian Andes, or solitude under sail. His books (articles, short stories, poetry) attest to his particular passion for the scope and the development of Human Potential. He authored more than twenty-five books, forteen of them novels. His non-fiction explores Ancient Myths, Biblical Symbolism, Immortality and the mystery of Visualization. Three volumes of Essays (Beyond Religion) investigate the Nature of Being.

I've read the Bible several times (though not front to back) and I am an enthusiast of the Old Testament as history. Now there is a way to read and understand the OT as teaching. I am so grateful for Stanislaw's dictionary and his depth of understanding, especially in the extremely helpful examples he gives of understanding otherwise seemingly dry OT passages.

I am using this largely as a reference work as I study the mindset of the author/s of Isaiah for my third novel set at the time of Hezekiah, and I'll keep using it for my own personal enrichment. This deserves wide recognition not only among the followers of religion but also anyone seeking inspiration and understanding.

Excellent.

I'm back with another one of Mr Kapuscinski's books. After reading his analysis of the Gospel of Thomas, I was curious to see what else he's written, and I'm happy to report that this title was equally interesting, though very different from the first book I read. This was more scientific in approach - analysing the linguistic background of certain Bible books, finding new meanings for old words that have always been translated a particular way because some people hundreds of years ago said they had to be interpreted just one way (which is basically impossible in Old Hebrew because it was written in defective script - all consonants, no vowels), and debunking some myths along the way. I'm a sucker for anything language or religion-related, so this work was right up my alley. If you are at all interested in finding out what the original text of the Bible says or might have said, or just interested in Classical Hebrew, I highly recommend this book. Throughout, the author doesn't try to force his opinion on the reader - he always stresses the importance of finding things out for yourself and going your own way.

As the husband to a preacher's daughter, there have been many conversations related to theological meaning and interpretation. Before reading this book, there were multiple teachings that we could not agree upon the translation into the real meanings and underlying concepts. After both of us read this book, and realized how much had been lost in literal translation, there was new light shone onto these teachings. Many of which we were both way off on the meanings. I think this book is a huge light on a previously vague (and outdated by some persons thinking) book, the Bible. This book helps the true meanings of teachings shine through, which also helps relate it to modern society. All around great book, and a must read in my opinion if you truly want to study theological meanings and teachings.

Discover the story behind the story! Over 3300 words not translated? This Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism unlocks many of the hidden truths in the bible. It's amazing to me what religious leaders are willing to sacrifice in their self-serving attempts to control the masses.

This book must have been years in the making. Thank you Mr. Kapuscinski for doing this legwork for us. And thank you for opening the door for us to discover the deeper "real" truth.

Not only are the metaphysical definitions in this book valuable and insightful, but the author's extensive front material is an education in itself. I tried out his interpretation method and was astounded at what I got. If one puts in the work required to extract the Bible's hidden meaning, this book becomes an essential reference and key for bringing out what would otherwise remain hidden. Highly recommended.

In the Kindle version, navigation takes a little getting used to, but it definitely works.

I picked this up along with several other of the author's books during a special promotion and I'm so glad I added it to my collection. It has proved immensely beneficial to me while I've been reading the texts. I had no idea that there were so many hidden layers to the material!

The introduction provided a wonderful glimpse into the thoughts of the people who hid the Gnostic Gospels and the motivations behind their actions. It was also nice to revisit the rediscovery of the gospels in the modern day although it was painful to be reminded that some of the precious pages had been burned, but thankfully the majority survived.

This invaluable resource provides not only the definitions but detailed examples of how to apply the definitions to the text so you can receive the full benefit of the translations.

I highly recommend this well researched dictionary. Its insights provide the reader with a whole new view of the texts and their meanings.

I was born and raised a Catholic, but like many believers, I had never actually READ the bible. As adult, a friend of mine pointed out I should probably read text my faith was based on! However, when I did I was often confused and couldn't find many difficult words in the dictionary. I did some searching and I came across this book, which helps put a lot of the bible in perspective, while leaving enough open to your interpretation. The book acts as a guide that helps define the words and give you perspective, without being preachy and drawing conclusions for you. This book is a must read for people of all faiths (or lack there of) that are interested in the bible. Great work!
