The Chamberlain Key
Timothy Smith says he has made the greatest discovery of our day--an encrypted code in the oldest Hebrew texts of the Bible. He realized that he and his father both had six sons then a daughter. What family in the Bible had the same? Jacob and Leah. And the chances of such happening is fairly small. He went to Genesis 30, to the verses that tell of Jacob and Leah's family, and in the Hebrew text, found his own name, Timotheus, encrypted at an equidistance of sixteen, with his wife's full, unusual name right beside it. He believes he has found a "key" to discovering other codes in the text. He has found many other encryptions, including links to the Rocio Madonna legend of the Catholics. But the greatest thing is the dire warnings he believes he has found and will continue to find.
I found this to be a very interesting and well-written book. I was interested the whole way through. I really liked Smith's style of writing--he kept it simple but informative, and had a good overall sense that he believes what he's writing about, but understands that others may not.
I received this book from BLOGGING FOR BOOKS in exchange for my honest review.
