REBOOTING THE BIBLE, PART 2 – TOPICS (TOC)

The book is nearing completion, Only the introduction and the final chapter must be completed.  I am sending the book out to reviewers now to enable them to comment near the time of the book’s release. For those of you anxiously awaiting the book, which I believe is the best thing I’ve written to date, I’m sharing with you the outline of the first 8 chapters.

Again, one more chapter to write and that will be on the subject of whether or not there was a Pre-Adamic race, evidence for a “high civilization” before Genesis 1, and a possible scenario for what happened before the world began, before the time of Adam and Eve.
Stay tuned for more updates.  I hope to devise a way to do pre-orders with Amazon and for my website.  I’ll let you know. For those anxious to get one of the first copies, I will also structure a method to get it to you for delivery on the release date.
New release date:  May 15.
