I ignored my usual warning signs when browsing through this book at the book store; i.e., a book peppered with bold face italicized words as well as much underlining is a sure sign of a crank. What impressed me, however, was his linguistic analysis of the Bible. I have a secular interest in ancient religions and myths and thought that this book might be a scholarly book after all. As I read, I found the book highly entertaining and the linguistic analysis fascinating. I had previously read many discussions of the mistranslations of the Bible. The author was consistent with these discussions and he looked into some of these words in greater depth. Not being a linguist, I was unable to evaluate his comments. Then came more warning signs. There is a conspiracy! Soon we are into discussions of Adam's DNA and, finally.,, UFOs. If you don't mind some crazy stuff, this can be an entertaining read, but don't expect much more.
