I'm about halfway through and I don't know if I can finish it
I'm frankly extremely disappointed with the text. Nathaniel Merritt, the author, seems to be extremely fond of substituting mainstream christian thinking with his own brand of gnosticism. While many of his points regarding the polytheism of the OT and the mythical nature of Adam & Eve etc etc are valid they're not new by any means. All of his arguments are pulled from other peoples research, which he seems to take at face value depending on whether it fits his own beliefs. I'd rather have a well researched critique from a bona fide scholar on ancient theologies and languages than from someone with their own angle passing judgement on the subject.
From reading Mr Merritt's history it seems he's been a confused individual for a while and has been searching for some sort of spiritual enlightenment for most of his life. He's settled (for the time being) on a mysticism that fits himself, his personality and his circumstance and not the reality of the world and the universe as they actually are, and science proves they are.
My opinion is I wouldn't recommend this book and the number of 5 stars handed out to this book on Lulu.com is misleading. There are much better researched, more informed, less derivative books available on composition of the OT and NT scriptures.
I'll try and finish the book and hope it gets better but I'm thinking it was $5 wasted.
