Talking With God: The Radioactive Ark of the Testimony. Communication Through It. Protection From It. Hardcover – September 1, 2010
From Moses to King David, the Israelites reported terrifying, even fatal encounters with the Ark of the Testimony (commonly Ark of the Covenant). They used common terms of the day, but as languages have evolved, their original descriptions have suffered misconstruing and, therefore, faulty translation. Roger Isaacs extensive research into 18 ancient languages reveals how the Bible says the Ark enabled direct communication with God.
Talking With God is an assembled jigsaw puzzle. Roger David Isaacs has taken words from many ancient languages and painstakingly matched them to their counterparts in the Hebrew of the Five Books of Moses. The result is a totally new approach to what the Hebrew words originally conveyed. In Isaacs' view, the words traditionally translated holy, sanctify, glory, sin, atone, plague, soul, testimony, cherubim, etc., have completely different meanings. When they are all assembled, the result is a startling picture that is directly related to the laws of radiation physics and chemistry as we understand them today. Isaacs' work is an exciting guide through the biblical world as it was meant to be understood ... a far cry from the standard, familiar interpretations.

Roger Isaacs has written a book that is sure to arouse controversy ... but the arguments that comprise the bulk of the book have 40 years of scholarly research backing them. --Robert Wolf, Author and Executive Editor, Free River Press
TALKING WITH GOD is a powerful, overwhelming work of scholarship and dedication. Thank you not only for the book, but also for the enormous contribution you made to better understand the Bible and the Jewish tradition. We were deeply impressed further by your father's message in his own handwriting, a message which endures permanently. --Newt Minow
