Beyond words

by rcfsister on Nov 1, 2007

Within the first few chapters, I have had to read this book in spurts. Information about how the Church has ruled the language, culture, wisdom, and social classes is amazing!! I have always heard of things like the church keeping people in lower classes and not wanting them to read, understand and study the Word of God for themselves. This book addresses these issues and more. I still have not finished, for the information is very very deep. If you want to know the Truth, then read it. If you do not have an open mind about how the church truly can be dominant in a culture, especially the Catholics, then leave the book alone. It's amazing how individuals wanted the King's approval in order to get Scripture published. then to have the drawings showing the process of the distribution is even more amazing. I know I keep using the same word "amazing." but that is what this book is to me. AMAZING!! Understanding how the Bible was put together, distributed, conflicts people had and sacrifices which were made is a part of history; which everyone should be willing to learn about. I recommend this book for anyone, including teachers and ministers, to enlighten themselves and enhance the knowledge which God has brought forth.
