Return to Genesis is Officially Published!

Yesterday, June 11th, I gave the final approval for the publication of Return to Genesis. The book is available both at CreateSpace and on Amazon.Gutenberg Press

It feels as if an enormous weight has been lifted off my shoulders. You can surely imagine how this book project has been a burden for me over the years. However, at the same time, it has been a blessing as I wrote it, seeking God and His Word for wisdom along the way. I pray and trust that the information in this book will set many people free to truly know Christ and the great salvation that He offers to mankind.

The Bible’s message has been unknowingly minimized by church leaders today to accommodate our culture and satisfy the existing power structures. The hidden message of the Bible, which we find in the symbolism, is actually quite subversive.

Don’t get me wrong–the same message is present in the literal text of the Bible. It’s just that biblical literalists are adept at finding ways to dismiss what they don’t want to believe, especially teachings that might cause them to feel discomfort, or to fear that they may lose followers, which could in turn reduce their income. What you will find in Return to Genesis is the unvarnished truth about what the Bible teaches. Thankfully, the Word of God doesn’t need varnish to shine brightly in our hearts.Sun shining

Lest anyone get the wrong impression, symbolic interpretations are not “better” than literal interpretations. That would be like saying the vision in your left eye is “better” than the vision in your right eye. In fact, we need both visual hemispheres and both kinds of interpretation. Depending on the context or the circumstances, we sometimes need to rely on one perspective more than on the other.

As literalists will point out, there is a risk of “spiritualizing” the Bible by emphasizing allegorical meanings at the expense of historical truth and literal meanings. Both the literalist and the spiritualist extremes are equally mistaken.

Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yes, the book has been published!thumbs up
