Brother Cohen offers rare insight into LDS theology from a Jewish perspective. Also as one who has studied and received insight into the Adamic Tongue and Calendar, he offers peculiar linguistic insight into the tokens and symbols encoded into the scriptures. He begins his book with an insightful discussion on what may seem to many to be contradictions and paradoxes within the scriptures, but which actually denote "truth standing on its head" to be perceived only by those with "eyes to see and ears to hear." He shares some vital keys on how to achieve a much deeper level of spirituality, which I found particularly useful. His discussion of the Urim and Thumim was fascinating as well as several other Old Testament subjects. Those who are searching for "greater light and knowledge" will not be disappointed with this book. Intellectuals who want proof for everything will probably scoff at it. Brother Cohen offers a beautiful blending of both academic and spiritual research which will only be appreciated by those who enjoy the gift of discernment and who have confidence in their own intellectual and spiritual gifts to comprehend and discern.
I have never read such a small book with so many BIG words! I had to have a dictionary for almost every page. That said, I did enjoy learning about Hebrew language and symbols and how the original Adamic language gave Holy meanings to words. The authors point out some of the mistranslations in the Bible when ancient Hebrew is used. I find it interesting that so many names of places and peoples originate from the founders or have reference to Deity. Some examples are: Denmark means field of Dan. Nevada - we will serve Jehovah. Idaho - the hand of Jehovah creates. Alaska - the fire of God is like Jehovah. And Hawaii - behold, Jehovah is to come. I underlined a lot and made notes in the margins on most pages. This is a book I'm sure I will refer back to.
Very provocative book. It has awakened a new challenge to study the material talked about in the book. What until you read his conclusion on the three vavs that are next to each other in the Book of Revelations. (Just Saying!) The entire book is one revelation after another...how the truth is hiding in plain sight. I really hope he writes more books. This one wets that appetite for more. Since I read this book I have bought many more and gave them to my friends.
For any one seeking deeper spiritual Judeo-Christian background. Opens your spiritual eyes, uplifts, fascinates. My rule,an inspired work. I couldn't put it down and want to re-read it. Get it, read it, pass it on.
