I took off a star because of the book's format. It is too small and reading a theological/historical treatise should not be as difficult as reading Audobon's mini Field Guide to Birds.
The book's thesis is a valid and little known one that needs more widespread explanation, however. The Magen David/Star of David/Seal of Solomon/Hexagram is NOT of Jewish origin, but instead finds its origin in pagan idolatry towards Ashtoreth which was adopted by Israel's king Solomon in defiance of God's commandments. The six pointed star was used in Gnostic and even Islamic artwork and symbolism before it came to use amoung Jews. It was adopted by Cabalists who got their beliefs from the earlier heretic Gnostics who believed the God of the Old Testament was evil and worshipped Lucifer. Issac Luria was a Cabalist who popularized it in the sixteenth century and it was used on a coat of arms by the banking family of Rothschild. Further on down the line the hexagram was utilized as the symbol for Zionism and became the emblem of the Israeli flag.
Much of the controversy surrounds the star's meaning. Jews claim that it was actually used by king David in the Bible, but in fact it may have been named after other Davids in history who were popular Jewish leaders. Also proposed is that the triangle pointing up represents God and the triangle pointing downward represents man. The symbolism is, however, a Cabalistic representation of the opposing forces (like the Eastern Yin Yang) that involves sexual congress and the loss of difference between male and female. It can also be a simplification of the more complex symbol that represents the Zodiac. The hexagram has the code for the Beast of Revelation in it--6 sides clockwise, 6 counter-clockwise, and 6 sides that form a hexagon in the middle of the figue. As a note, the author points out that the number six represents imperfection in the Bible, as opposed to seven which represents the fullness of God and His creation.

This book is historically true. Originally pagan, the Six-Pointed Star (hexagram), has been used in Baal worship from the days of Genesis. Rebuked in Amos 5:26, it became known as the Seal of Solomon after Solomon married the daughter of Pharoah, built an altar to Ashteroth, and entered into Baal worship. Since then, usage has continued in Solomonic ritiuals in the Craft (freemasonry). Long used in magic and witchcraft, the Six-Pointed Star has been used as the chief symbol of worship to Moloch in burnt human sacrificial rituals. Used by Druids and astrologers, the six-pointed Star has been used consistently in the occult, and was used by occultist Adolph Hitler, during the holocaust. In more recent times, it has almost replaced the Seven-branched Candlestick (Menorah) which was given to the Israelites as an everlasting covenant. There is a six within a six within a six in the six-pointed star - is this 666 a sign of things to come? The power of Symbolic Interactionism revealed at its best. What a book!

I checked all the information in the Six-Pointed Star by Dr. O. J. Graham, and found them to be all accurate. I found out also, that even today Jews are not the only ones who use this symbol. Dr. Graham is correct in saying that the people in the occult, astrology, and witchcraft all use this symbol and that it really belongs to them. As Dr. Graham pointed out, because innocent Jews use the hexagram too, they are badly regarded by those who do not know that they are using it innocently. I checked the facts mentioned in the book concerning the Menorah (seven-branched candlestick) and discovered that God indeed gave the seven-branched candlestick to the people Israel as an everlasting covenant. Israel included the House of Israel, and the House of Judah (after Solomon's fall). I always wondered why the people Israel abandoned the use of the Menorah and started using the six-pointed star. However, the book by Dr. Graham settled that question, as he pointed out that Solomon used it when he went into idolatry and witchcraft after marrying the daughter of Pharoah, so a few may have adopted it then, even if it was not widely used. As Dr. Graham pointed out - Hitler put the six-pointed star on the Jewish people to insult them. But it seems to me that like any fashion - one person wears it, then many follow without checking the facts- apply to why so many take this as a symbol of being Jewish.It's hard to believe that even in his death, Hitler continues to insult the Jews - and now, by their own willing hands. Like the author, I do not believe that most of them really want to identify with witchcraft. The book is factual and impartial, and helps non-Jewish people to understand and stop their prejudices... I was happy for the information, and I give this book five stars.

I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to read this book. EVERYONE that's wearing the "Star of David" should read it. I've been searching for Biblical truth by way of my Hebrew roots and I wanted to wear the "Star". But i've changed my mind after reading this book. One thing I do recall from my research is that YHWH gave us the menorah not the "Star of David". Read the book you won't be disappointed; more likely upset.
