I found this book to take up a lot of focus and concentration. It’s definitely not a book you can read with a distracting background. It’s full of scriptures that are deciphered and interpreted by the author. Each interpretation is a refreshing new approach on old concepts. There are tons of topics and subjects that the author discusses, with points of views I’ve never heard before. I’m always interested in other people’s views on the same written word from the Bible that we are all familiar with. I find that another person’s ideas and concepts of the bible very interesting. As a reader, we all read the same basic words from the bible, but as people we each take something different away from the message.
I feel like the author was not out to convert or sway anyone from their own beliefs, but to just simply interpret parts of the bible, to apply to your own personal life to better yourself as a person, and to have a better outlook on life and the life lessons we all inevitably have to go through. I really think he has a unique way of writing about religion and scripture, which seems to make sense to the average reader. This book would be great for anyone looking to be more spiritual. I even think it would be a great book for a bible study group.
It goes over different verses and discussions for you to contemplate and run over yourself, or in a discussion/group. I found this to be very versatile. I give this book 4/5.
This was a book I didn’t expect to love as much as I did. The stories and scripture from the bible is incorporated into this modern mystery by Felix Alexander. I don’t think the synopsis of this book does it justice.
The author does a great job at slowly giving you enough information about each character, to keep you informed, while also being intrigued. It starts off to a slow but decent pace, and quickly turns into a complex mystery with a lot going on all at once.
What I really enjoyed about this book, was that it wasn’t overly religious. People who aren’t overly familiar with the bible, can easily pick this book up and understand the plot.
This book holds quite a bit of similarities to The Da Vinci Code. The story of ancient artifiacts holding secrets, only just now being deciphered in modern time is a great plot, and I think Alexander did an amazing job with it. It’s educational and perplexing.
The book goes back and forth from first person perspective, and third person, and sometime the transition wasn’t clear. There were some grammar and spelling issues that made this book feel like a rough draft read, otherwise I’d give this a 5/5.
I really enjoyed that this wasn’t an overly wordy or long book. It was the perfect length for me to get hooked, and take in enough information to grasp the plot, without a long commitment to a book over five hundred pages. This book was almost four hundred pages, which I found to be perfect.
Overall, I give this book 4/5.
A Novel About the End of the World and Beyond
George finds himself in heaven, otherwise known as The New Kingdom. He spends his days learning the answers to all of life’s big questions. There’s a lot in this book, from parts of the bible to the crazy myths humans spread during their time on Earth.
Because of the serious topics brought up in the book, I found it to be a bit jumpy. It was a bit hard to remember the initial conversation after the tangent is over. Otherwise I found this to be a good book I would recommend to my friends who will understand and appreciate Mr. Stockwell’s humor. I give it a 5/5.
