The only reason I gave this book three stars is for Suares’s great idea and bold attempt. Unfortunately, Suares is unqualified for the task. Not only does he exhibit limited understanding of the meaning of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, he also has no real understanding of spirituality. In short, he is in over his head with this text. Moreover, his writing is not agreeable, but rather cryptic, ambiguous, stilted, and “psychologized.”
Anybody intimate with J.Krishnamuti’s teachings, will quickly recognize that Suares “spiritual” analyses and interpretations of the Bible are right out Krishnamurti. And unsurprisingly, Suares, clearly taken with Krishnamurti, wrote a book on his teachings (“Krishnamurti and the Unity of Man”).
I am an expert on Krishnamurti’s teachings – in the 1970s I participated in various J. Krishnamurti groups—and only an “uninitiated” spiritual philosopher would attempt to marry J. Krishnamurti’s teachings with Qabalah. J. Krishnamurti had great potential, but after “First and Last Freedom” (see my five-star review) and “Commentaries on Living,” he went flat. There is no spiritual (or energetic) dimension to his teachings, which became a repetitive, “psychologized” drone after the aforesaid texts. Simply put, Krishnamurti did not “crack the cosmic code,” and neither does Suares in “The Cipher of Genesis.”
I’ve had “The Cipher of Genesis” for several years, and twice before attempted to read it. But each time I gave up because Suares didn’t impress me, and I didn’t want to take the time to learn the esoteric meaning of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. But a bright young lady who posts at my Facebook group (Electrical-Hermetic Christianity) insisted that I needed to give it another try -- and so I did. And this time I took several hours to figure out the esoteric meaning of the Hebrew letters. (I went to a few websites for different perspectives.)
What did I find? Two important things: First, Suares’s interpretation of the letters does not closely match mine; second, there are four basic gematria methods, so the numbers Suares uses are hardly etched in stone as the right ones.
I really believe that Suares had a great idea with his application of gematria to the Bible and qabala, and hopefully in the future someone more qualified will carry this work forward.
1) its a tad difficult to read
due to the authors train of thought…..
He begins in one arena and then goes on and on and on (with what I find to be
somewhat boring) just to end with what he could've said up front.
Some may like that, but I like to get to the point.
Purchased this because I read Glynda-Lee Hoffmann and the way in which she
portrayed this work, I was fascinated…..
I am NOT saying the book is not good……..
The book itself is very deep. Not your ordinary secular interpretations on religious monotheism.
Here in this book, it goes down deep to the building blocks of language with numbers as well, religious beliefs, and of life itself. Consider it the subatomic analysis of the metaphysics of Christianity.
