Xlibris Book Review: Love and Romance in the Bible

Xlibris Author Asher Elkayam provides a profound exploration on romance, sex and love—and its perversion—in Biblical times and reveals how women changed the world

REISTERSTOWN, Md. (PRWEB) April 08, 2013

Love and Romance in the Bible How women changed the world in Biblical times has always been a contentious subject of discussion. Although there are various materials to offer discussions on this significant subject, people are always searching for simple, easy-to-understand writings that will lead them to wisdom and enlightenment. Through intensive and independent research, author Asher Elkayam discovers cold facts presented by the Bible scribes in the Tannakh relating to this subject—and he knows that people need only truth. Without prejudice to one religion or another, his new book Love and Romance in the Bible depicts besides the beauty of love and romance, other passions such as incest, rape and thirst for power. The concept of love is perceived through three different perspectives: pure love, love for procreation sake and finally ‘fake’ love intended to achieve evil.

This book is a comprehensive study where Elkayam examines the role of certain biblical women and how women changed the world through sexual appeal mixed with wisdom. The Bible describes both the good and the evil in women. Certain biblical women described in this project influenced the course of history. Other biblical women took the responsibility to prepare future leaders who were crucial in their respective times. Others compromised entire kingdoms through their attraction. Some women such as Tamar and Ruth are claimed by several religions and faiths. Tamar, for example, became the real mother of Judaism when the tribe of Judah was almost extinct.

Love And Romance in The Bible examines how a handful of biblical women became the mothers of many nations and how they became so powerful. Sarah was the real mother of Islam and Judaism. Rebecca was responsible for the upcoming foundation of twelve tribes of the Israelites (by saving the life of Jacob).

Elkayam also looks into how sexual attraction and sexual appeal have altered the course of history, how sexual temptations changed and perverted people, how sex, envy, jealousy, lust, and love have never changed in history, and how lust and idolatry have been tied together. Jezebel, Athaliah and Delilah were bad examples. Queen Esther, Ruth, Deborah and Hannah were good examples.

Elkayam utilizes his knowledge and dedication to research and come up with this revealing book that will surely appeal to those who are seeking for truth and wisdom. He has gone through every Hebrew word in the Tannakh and has selectively singled out those paragraphs, phrases and words which best describe this project—translating them to simple English to be more suitable and understandable in modern times. Overall, he believes that the Bible remains a source of inspiration to those who believe in love as a powerful tool for creativity, morality, strength, and hope.

Mr. Elkayam’s previously written books on the Bible are highly praised by Dr Adam Ackerman, one of Israel Best Sellers. He wrote: “As an author of best-selling books about the history of the Jewish nation and about Jerusalem, and being also a good friend of Asher Elkayam for many years, I appreciate his ability to analyze the common and different factors in all the three main religions. He shows deep knowledge of the Bible, the New Testament and of the Qur’an. His books promote the tolerant people of all the faiths and strengthen the belief to advance together to real peace in the world. His books should be used by thousands of readers and translated into many languages.”
