Here is the dawn of a new age in Bible scholarship. With the breath-taking vision of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as three inter-related faces of the same monotheism, Howard Schatz dares to return to the mystical roots of orthodox religion, and to read the Bible with the assumptions of its original authors. In prose that is always clear, often beautiful, and eminently quotable, and with a numerology carefully explained to uncover the science behind traditional Kabbalism, Schatz employs his own comfortable grasp of modern science to do justice to our common ancestors.

The Lost Word of God based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The significance of Schatz¿s book cannot be overestimated. It is an interpretation of the symbolism in a little book written by the Patriarch Abraham some 4000 years ago. This book, called ¿The Book of Creation¿ has defied interpretation ¿ until now. Schatz has, through music, philosophy, theology and science, accomplished this. Abraham¿s book lays the foundation for the three major religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam and shows that they have the same origin ¿ and that understanding this could lead to cooperation, world peace and unification, rather than separativeness and division. It is our duty to understand this lost information to start to build the materials necessary for the healing of society and indeed, even our physical bodies. Within each one of us is the undeveloped seed of God. It is our responsibility to grow it. This book gives us the materials with which to do so.
Some of the books later details may be a tough read but the first hundred pages could be the most important and illuminating revelation about the three major religious faiths in the world. It links science and religion in a way never before realized by religious scholars of the past. It shows a framework explaining the common, rather than diverse, aspects of the world's three major religions. A fascinating insight which finally explains the common origins and development of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. It all comes together logically and succinctly. A must-read for anyone interested in any or all cultures and religions.
