I love God. This author seems to support dogma and zealotry. If you wish to find the love of God, please stay away from fear cultivating books like this. As St Augastine said: "God created us in his image and we returned the favor." To this author God is a punitive, angry entity like a human. The first prayer turned me off completely and was much of the same old diatribe we hear from fear based "Christianity." "We musy accept we are sinners." No, actually first we must go out and learn what the word "sin" truly means. The word "sin" is a Greek term from Archery. It means one has made a mistake, off the mark, or take another shot. Nowhere is this explained within Mr. Knotts' book. He KNOWS this is a term most people believe means an indelible scar against God, but stays with the dogmatic view by not explaining its true meaning.
The author does not seem to understand this in any way. As an Aramaic linguist as well as studying Latin for many years I am dismayed this person knows so little about the words he writes about. I believe it is books like this that give God a bad name and make so many turn away from the church and God. I am sorry for this author and people who see God in this punitive way. There are much more loving better ways to go about it.
True seekers, seek elsewhere.
However, it is a great book and worth reading. I hate that the one star reviewer attacked the book and actually turned someone who was looking for Christ away...and all because that first prayer was the prayer of salvation which is backed up by scripture in the book. It boils down to the fact that they don't agree with biblical beliefs and this book is Bible based. There is nothing "dogmatic" or fire and brimstone about it. Very sad and will be praying.
