From the Author
In spite of what the Amazon link might tell you, I have not authored a book on Acupressure! Nevertheless, I did write "The Stranger," ...a book for those who have "little to no understanding" of the Bible.
I guess most people want to know "why" a person writes a book. Really it is quite simple. The Bible contains an immense volume of text, and in this hectic age, few people take the time to read it. I felt deeply that the Bible is a book worth understanding. After all, it is the world's best seller, and it talks about life and death... and life after death. I also felt that many are curious as to its content.
To explain the Bible, I took a double-pronged approach:
1. The Reader's Digest approach: I condensed the Bible's content to 300 pages, and focused on its primary message.
2. The mathematical approach: I built from the foundation up-a very simple educational concept! You don't start children in kindergarten by teaching them algebra. Rather, you begin with basic numbers, and move from the simple to the complex. If you skip the fundamentals, even rudimentary algebra is beyond their grasp. It's the same way with the Bible. If you neglect the foundations, your biblical understanding will incorporate some unusual ideas, resulting in the primary message being confused and misunderstood.
The result is a book that makes the Bible's message logical and easy to understand. Whether you believe it or not is up to you. My job was to make it clear. As much as possible, I let the Bible speak for itself, and for that reason it includes over 1100 Bible verses!
I trust you will enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
