We live in a world where sound-bytes replace substance, as multitudes clamor to make their point. Amidst the deafening sound of talking heads, the truth is often lost in the context. Religion is not exempt from this sound-byte mentality. ReligiousMoreWe live in a world where sound-bytes replace substance, as multitudes clamor to make their point. Amidst the deafening sound of talking heads, the truth is often lost in the context. Religion is not exempt from this sound-byte mentality.

Religious leaders stand before congregations and boldly declare the words of their sermons and messages built upon a single, or few, lines of text from the Bible with no regard for context. For many the Bible has become a collection of fortune-cookie sayings, horoscopes and daily devotional snippets. Was this Gods intention? Was this the intention of the writers? Was this the intention of Jesus and his apostles? It is difficult to see what the apostle Paul was writing to the Ephesians or the Corinthians, issues he was addressing or lessons he was teaching, because every time we hear Second Corinthians Chapter 5 or Ephesians Chapter 4 we hear the voice of our pastor, leader or favorite teacher instead of reading the words on the page.

This book is not a remedy to the sound-byte distortion of our Holy text, but this book is a tool to assist us in reading the Bible without chapter and verse clutter, and possibly start us down the ancient path of understanding, again. Are Chapters and Verses a hindrance to our understanding the Bible? NO! As always, the thing is not the issue but our use of the God-given-thing determines whether it is useful or harmful. My prayer is that the readers of this book gain clearer understanding of the message relayed to us through the Bible and thereby be conformed to the image of Gods son.

This is Volume I of III - Genesis - Job
