1. Author offers some interesting ideas, which may be a starting point for an in depth discussion.
2. I like how he sees Genesis 1 as time of planting seeds and Genesis 2 is where these seeds become flesh (fruit).
3. There is an interesting explanation of Paul's letter to Romans where the law (Torah) is first of sin and death (due to our flesh) and then the same law (Torah) is of grace and live (that brings resurrection). I think that Mark Nanos works are the closest one to this view.
1. We can hardly call this book "Elijah Calling...". Elijah is only mentioned in a very few places (there is almost nothing about his calling) and Moses is the one that stands in the whole book (you will read his name 770 times).
2. Why Moses is seen as related to death, when he is the one that brought the new tablets to the mountain, to receive the renewed Torah?
3. Building a doctrine on patterns, images and fractals (and not on something clearly written in Hebrew writings), may cause countless opinions on the same subject. Author's approach looks like just adapting New Testament texts (doctrine) to the Torah, by finding patterns and images (i.e. broken tablets replaced with new one, mean law of death then law of resurrection, etc.). It may be exactly like that, but how can we proof it just by the Torah.
4. Author repeats so many times that we need to replace our flesh and spirit (duality) with just spirit (singularity). Only once he said that the spirit (singularity) must be covered with a body (without further explanation). This somehow contradicts Hebrew thinking that spirit without a body is incomplete and confirms Greek logic that anything earthly is bad (which we must escape) and only the spiritual is good. [see "De-Greecing The Church" of David Pawson].
5. There are really outstretched ideas based just on grammatical gender of some words i.e. moon (female). Then almost everything female is related to darkness and sin. The same is for all feast dates that he relates to 5 (female) and 7 (male) i.e 3x5=15, but why not 2x7+1=15th of Nisan.
6. Very annoying repetition of author's texts (almost each chapter ends with conclusion of what we learned from the very beginning). There are texts which are just copy&paste with very slight modifications. I think that more readers will reach the end, if author cuts the book in half (removing redundant texts).
7. There are excessive citations from the Bible (KJV). A few texts, repeat over and over again (sometimes in several pages). This also makes reading very boring. BTW, Did the author ever think that KJV may not be flawless? See for example an alternative translation of the letter to the Hebrews
8. Book raises more questions than answers. For example author insists that all people (Jews and Gentiles) should follow the Torah, but doesn't explain how practically we should do it. Which commandments are literal and which spiritual (as circumcision of heart)? Isn't the law of Moses specific to Israel (or it's for any other nation as well)? From the whole Torah, he speaks exclusively only about keeping the Sabbath and circumcision.
9. Author somehow overlooks when some Bible text relates specifically to Israel (and not to other nations). Whenever a text starts with "Hear Israel" or clearly relates to Israel, author then states "We must ...". On the other hand he stresses enough that nations (Gentiles) are not grafted into Israel, but in the Messiah.
10. Author doesn't state if he is a Jew (it seems he is a former member of a Hebrew Roots movement), but observing his writing, most probably we're reading explanation of the Torah, written by a non-Hebrew speaking/thinking person.
