In any event, the book is has enough of these examples to be worth reading.
William Guy, Ph.D., M.D.
This becomes quite obvious when you compare the character for "barley" with the character for "wheat" ("mai4"), as they have many elements in common.
Mike Wright
The only risk I can think of is that you might end up with referring frequently to and reading further the Bible.

I found the book quite enlightening. Many of the pictographs from ancient chinese as depicted in oracle bone and bronzeware writings, are strikingly telling of the genesis creation account. There were too many such examples to list them all here. On the other hand, there were a few that were....well, a stretch. The authors premise is that the pictographs were formed and accepted because the creation account passed down through the generations was universally recognized information. For example, the pictograph for dusk is a man, woman, and God behind gates in a garden. This is strongly reminiscent of the the genesis account of God visiting with Adam and Eve at Dusk as described in Genesis. In any event, the book is has enough of these examples to be worth reading. It is very good evidence that all races had one and the same beginning and God. It also provides evidence that monotheism was first.

The author discusses the significance of the mysterious Border Sacrifice which had been carried on by the Chinese Emperor from time immemorial until the Imperial system was overthrown in 1911. In this sacrifice, an unblemished bull is given to the God of Heaven, ShangDi (Highest King). Confucious knew about this ritual but did not understand it. He realized that whoever did understand the meaning behind this would be able to govern the world. In the recitations of the Border Sacrifice, the Emperor acknowledges ShangDi as the Creator. The author matches what is reported in the Hebrew Bible with what is written in the ancient Shu Jing and the Border Sacrifice recitations.

Looking for more clues, the authors turn to the earliest Chinese language pictograms. Those that were written on oracle bones, seal script, bronzeware. It turns out that evidence exists that the pictograms were pieced together by the occurances in Genesis. The creation of man is depicted, as is the Fall, and early sacrificial worship near the Garden gates. Since this study is so detailed it is easy to get lost in it if you do not have a good working knowledge of Chinese (which I do not).

However just look at a few of them and be amazed. The word for righteousness is the character for lamb on top of the character for me. This is so, even in modern (traditional) Chinese. It cannot be a coincidence that a lamb covering me is righteousness. It is because God has revealed to us that the Lamb of God taketh away the sins of the world. And to apply that salvation to yourself is to take cover under the righteousness of the Lamb of God (Jesus Christ).

That is what I should add to the title if you may.

It has been my life long admiration and curiosity what each of the Chinese characters has consisted of. So when I found this book which a friend of mine showed me first, I was delighted. My curiosity of language in general started when I was introduced to semantics in Japanese. Although I do not believe that there is a spirit in words, I do think they almost do have spirit. If you read this book you will understand what I mean. I am certainly not a linguist but certainly can say something obvious. That is the totally different explanation of or approach to the origin of the parts of Kanji has been taught in Kanji dictionaries in Japan at least (and I am almost certain that regular Chinese dictionaries have the same tendency since Japanese scholars base on them). So, one side must be wrong. If you believe what you read in John 1:1 ~ 13, you'll naturally incline to what this author is about to say. Amazingly painstaking scholarly work there is which you cannot easily see anywhere else especially in the area the book is about. It was my eye opening experience itself which gave me deeper insight not only on the origins of Chinese language but also the origin of the world and the human being. A casual eye cannot see what the book explains as it reads Chinese characters. However, the non-ordinary thinkers such as you may, in turn have a heart warming experience as they plod through this work. There is one useful feature at the end, which is a character reference table you may enjoy.

"Is there a risk of obtaining and reading this book?" you may ask. The only risk I can think of is that you might end up with referring frequently to and reading further the Bible. And, if you may, you will be more curious about your own (non-Chinese) language and the Author of our human language HIMSELF.
