The Bible Codeby Michael Drosnin
Synopses & Reviews
Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "a certifiable phenomenon...(that) abounds with stunning predictions", this meticulously documented New York Times bestseller explains the mathematical letter-code system embedded in the words of the Bible.
For 3,000 years, a code in the Bible remained hidden. Now it has been unlocked by an Israeli mathematician and confirmed by scholars and code-breakers around the world.
Based on the four-year investigation of Michael Drosnin, a secular — and highly skeptical — journalist, this controversial book explores thousands of events predicted in the Bible, including both Kennedy assassinations, the moon landing, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin — an event Drosnin attempted to thwart after it was revealed by the code.
Hotly debated and reviewed in major publications worldwide, The Bible Code raises a vital question — does the code describe an inevitable future, or a series of possible futures whose ultimate outcome we can still decide?
"What a treasure trove of secrets....The impact of such a find seems cosmic". — The Atlanta Constitution
"Fascinating...(raises) the timeless question of destiny versus free will inherent in any Bible discussion". — San Francisco Chronicle
0n September 1, 1994, I flew to Israel and met in Jerusalem with a close friend of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, the poet Chaim Guri. I gave him a letter which he immediately gave to the Prime Minister.
"An Israeli mathematician has discovered a hidden code in the Bible that appears to reveal the details of events that took place thousands of years after the Bible was written," my letter to Rabin stated.
"The reason I'm telling you about this is that the only time your full name Yitzhak Rabin is encoded in the Bible, the words 'assassin that will assassinate' cross your name."
On November 4, 1995, came the awful confirmation, a shot in the back from a man who believed he was on a mission from God, the murder that was encoded in the Bible three thousand years ago.
