I have a theory………….it’s just a theory. I’ve heard of so many females whose father raped them at the age of twelve or thirteen. In fact, a large number of males and females had something traumatizing that happened when they were that age. It has always intrigued me. Why then? Then I began thinking...

If TREK TO SINAI ends up being about the same length as ESCAPE FROM GOSHEN, I'm about halfway through the first draft. But Leah and Jacob aren't halfway through the trek! They've made it to Rephidim, the high plain surrounding Mt. Sinai (which the Israelites call the Mountain of God). Rephidim is...

A fleshpot is so ancient it dates back to the book of Exodous, in the Old Testament of the bible. It was a pot for cooking meat, and back in the day, because of the large size of the tribes, it must have been a huge pot. The word became associated with bodily comforts, luxury, excess and...

I have literally been there done that and it was so quiet you could have heard a squirrel rustling in the underbrush if there had been any. Armageddon is a place in Israel, Har-Magedon, meaning "Mountain of Megiddo". Are you kidding me? I thought it meant the "end of the world" as we know it. It...

Superfragilistic Amniotic Intercourse Title hardly makes any sense, right? Wrong! Attempting to decipher the rhyme or reason for things of potential global impact goes against the pall of rational thought that is of value to the human race.

The Family, by Jeff Sharlet   I rarely read and virtually never post on writing of a polemical nature. When I first heard of Sharlet’s book I thought it would be of this kind, and it is—sort of. I’d seen Rachel Maddow on MSNBC gasping at Sharlet’s revelations in this book, seen him on a number...

I am writing this book online. I don't know the future it may have for publishing. It will be a book reflecting on the theological ideas of the Hebrew Bible. --Derek  Introduction To say that the Hebrew Bible speaks is to reject simplistic ideas about the Bible. It is not a book which simply...
