This is a fiction book about biblical icons who 'come back' to earth in order to listen to and judge their supporters. Jesus comes back and faces Moses and Aaron. For Christians, Jesus is the symbol of purity and deity. For Jews, Moses is the prophet who produced the laws for all humanity. Moses is considered in the book of Genesis to be the humblest of all men. While Moses, Jesus, Paul and Aaron are having a serious talk, a heated debate is taking place here on earth among bible lovers and objective scholars. Community leaders organize conferences in several towns around the country and invite spiritual leaders, scientists and anthropologists to discuss the concept of Creation versus Evolution.

In the fictive world of our biblical icons, more and more historic figures appear and join the circle of discussion and debate about the original biblical laws and how some laws have been changed throughout history. It is being exciting.

Back on earth, a friendly but frank dialogue on the Judeo-Christian relations takes place. Rabbis, men of church and scientists vent their opinions about the sour and happy moments, which took place during the last 2000 years, between Jews and Christians. Efforts are made between both parties to clear several myths, which separated the two camps throughout history.

While the above is taking place, Moses, Jesus and others are invisible to the audience.

The readers of this project are lead to realize that, after a painful and a historic confrontation between our biblical icons, a somewhat positive and constructive bridge has been formed. Their mutual understanding was based on the biblical commandments, which are accepted by both religions. Several doubts have been cleared.

The multiple conferences between humans ended up establishing a long list of findings, thus enabling a constructive rapprochement between both religions. It was concluded that, despite some differences, both religions could live comfortably with each other within mutual respect and mutual tolerance.

Israeli bestseller Dr Adam Ackerman, commenting on Mr. Elkayam's work on the Bible, said among other things that Mr. Elkayam '... shows deep knowledge of the Bible, the New Testament and the Qur'An. His books promote the tolerant people of all faiths and strengthen the belief to advance together to real peace in the world. His books should ...be translated into many languages.'

This new project concentrates on the power of love and other passions that changed the world.

As we consider the Bible as a historical document we cannot help but wonder about those personalities in the Bible who can take credit for creating a multitude of tribal orders and nations throughout the globe.

Sarah and Abraham were the very first ancestors who discovered Monotheism and consequently gave birth to powerful nations who ended up populating nearly half of the people’s planet. One of the most populous nations on earth: Islam , was created as a result of Sarah’s consent to have Abraham (her husband) consort with her maid: Hagar. Ishmael was born and he became the father of twelve powerful tribes.

Love in The Bible speaks about how entire kingdoms were formed and other destroyed. It also emphasizes the power of seduction aimed at altering a destiny of a nation. Delilah sought to destroy Samson in order to guarantee the supremacy of the Philistines over the Israelites. Athaliah the mean destroyed her own children in order to maintain power. Jezebel managed to do away with over four hundred so called prophets in order to maintain her power over the land.

Those women of power did evil while using their men. Delilah used Samson by seducing him and convincing him to disclose the secret of his power. Jezebel and Athaliah used their men kings in order establish their own kingdom.

On the other hand, there were impressive female heroes. Deborah was a pure military strategist who saved a whole nation with her inspiration and positive attitude towards victory. Deborah was also a poetess and a highly praised judge who kept a nation in peace for forty years.

Esther was a special queen who came to the rescue of the entire Jewish Persian minority because she was the preferred woman of King Xerxes.

King Solomon in his “Song of Songs” described love and romance in a manner that can be duplicated in our modern era. His poetry is still read and appreciated in our times and it can be quoted repeatedly by true lovers of our century. Romance and the longing for love have never changed. Lovers can be imaginative and use silly ways to remain in love as they do today.

However, love can take different turns as well. A true shocking story of love by accident is the story of Judah who became the father of Judaism.

Could anyone imagine that Judah, the head of the tribe of Judah, a tribe that was almost extinct, suddenly became the ancestor of the most populous tribe of Israel? It happened at a time where Judah was almost childless. By accident, he encountered a woman named Tamar, who paused as a harlot. However, since Judah did not recognize her he became intimate with her. Tamar was actually Judah’s daughter in law. Since her two husbands (Judah’s sons) died- it was Judah’s duty to have Tamar marry the only surviving son. That never happened either. As Tamar used a special ruse to fool Judah, she conceived and she became the actual ancestress of Judaism, as we know it today. This intriguing (soap opera-like) story is described in details. What is more, she became the ancestor of Boaz and David, King of Israel. Both Jews and Christians claim Tamar as their ancestor, while Christians state that King David was twenty generations apart from Jesus.

Love And Romance in The Bible depicts other passions such as incest and rape. The daughters of Lot who saw it necessary to ‘revive’ seed from their own father because they were afraid of their generation becoming extinct committed incest. The Bible does not condemn nor condone this act. However, the curious outcome was that two nations evolved out of this incestuous act: Moab and Ammon.

The Amnon and Tamar (daughter of David)’s story is a perfect example of an insecure man (son of David) who gets infatuated with his half sister (Tamar) and ends up abusing and humiliating her. In the
A New York Times Bestseller

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a brand-new love story in the Baxter Family collection about two people who lost their parents in the same national tragedy—two people desperate to find each other and the connection they shared for a single day…a day that changed everything.

Brady Bradshaw was a child when the Oklahoma City bombing killed his mother. Every year, Brady visits the memorial site on the anniversary to remember her. A decade ago on that day, he met Jenna Phillips, who was also a child when her parents were killed in the attack. Brady and Jenna shared a deep heart connection and a single beautiful day together at the memorial. But after that, Brady never saw Jenna again. Every year when he returns, he leaves a note for her in hopes that he might find her again.

This year, Ashley Baxter Blake and her sister Kari Baxter Taylor and their families take a spring break trip that includes a visit to the site to see the memorial’s famous Survivor Tree. While there, Ashley spots a young man, alone and troubled. That man is Brady Bradshaw. A chance moment leads Ashley to help Brady find Jenna, the girl he can’t forget.

Ashley’s family is skeptical, but she pushes them to support her efforts to find the girl and bring them together. But will it work? Will her husband, Landon, understand her intentions? And is a shared heartache enough reason to fall in love?

Deeply emotional and beautifully romantic, To the Moon and Back is an unlikely love story about healing, redemption, hope and the belief that sometimes a new tomorrow can grow from the ashes of a shattered yesterday.
The following are questions on important subjects intended to help people use their memory in order to retrieve information on subjects they know such as History, Geography, Religion, Science and more trivia and curiosity questions will also be included. This project will be divided into ten chapters with 100 questions for each chapter. The questions represent the first part of the book. The second part of the book includes the answers. Unlike in the Jeopardy Show, which is designed for a new champions, this project is for everyone. No one is required to gamble or play for money. No one is required to pull hair in order to find answers which may not always be so important or indispensible for everyone in real life. It is intended to entertain and to enrich knowledge. Some questions may pertain to one or more subjects or chapters. For example, questions on the Patriarch Abraham, could be found in the chapter on ancient history as well as in the chapter on the Bible. Questions on quotes may pertain to ancient history and scriptures as well as in contemporary writers/scientists. The questions and statements given here are of public domain and are not questions or statements uniquely or specifically made by any educational institution. However, credit is given when due. The answers will be given at the end of the book, so people can use their memory and knowledge before they look for the answer. The author has consulted and researched dozens of books and hundreds of internet sources as written in his bibliography. Some of the answers may be found in books he had previously published, namely The Bible, The Power of the Word (and in between the lines); The Quran and Biblical Origins; One Family, Four Cultures and Four Continents; Whose God is it Anyway?; Love and Romance in the Bible. Those books can be viewed at the following sites: www.amazon.com, www.asherauthor.com, www.xlibris.com and www.lulu.com (click on authors name) The purpose of this work is to have people enjoy daily a few moments of fun. The contents are not in any chronological order. This is not a fiction or drama book that needs to be finished at the end of the day. This will not only be fun to test ones knowledge, but also an excellent tool to sharpen and refresh the mind on different fields of knowledge. In sum, is it important to state that rediscovering old and new facts and data can lead to a certain happiness and personal satisfaction. Knowledge on diverse subjects can help in achieving better self-confidence and self-expression and, overall, a better quality of life for all people. This project has something for everyone. The questions and answers will undoubtedly satisfy readers of all walks of life and of most age groups. Facts, data and world events become so complex that this project. Finally, this project has been inspired by personal experience as it is explained at the end of this book under the title References and Bibliography.
This fascinating book, One Family, Four Cultures and Four Continents, by Asher Elkayam, depicts the adventures of a child growing up in Morocco and goes through political and historical events which happened in his childhood and focused on a pivotal year: 1956. Mr. Elkayam writes about the beauty of childhood and the innocence thereof, the neighborhood, the nature, the education, the typical things, which happened then but may never be repeated. In an emotional way, he describes the infl uence of his parents, who were among the guardians of Jewish tradition. He describes the Moroccan Jewish population, which represented a minority, and the events which led to their survival. Having been targeted by the Nazi regime which expanded its grip on North Africa during the 1940’s, including French Morocco, that minority of Jews of North Africa was saved by the arrival of the American forces, during World War Two, who landed in Casablanca in November, 1942, the author’s city of birth. The North African Jewry, which totaled about 400,000, was thus saved from the Nazi threat while Nazi atrocities in Europe went on until 1945, thus destroying the majority of the European Jews. Consequently, a massive exodus of North African Jews took place between 1948 and 1958. The hopes and dreams, as recited in their daily prayers, to reach the Holy Land, were fi nally realized. With measured enthusiasm, Asher describes the friendly relationship between Moslems and Jews in his native Morocco. Asher wants to make sure his readers understand that there is a divide between friendship and politics. The overwhelming majority of his neighbors were friendly and unthreatening. However those in the small minority who became active in politics were behind the forces which eventually caused Asher’s family and thousands more to look for a safe exit from his native land. Whether the events which led to a massive exodus from North Africa represented a coincidental circumstance in current events or whether they were caused by some divine intervention would remain for a long time a thing historians could decide on one day.
