  1. I respect your judgement. But to be fair to the author, what kind of review is the book getting? Do most readers come to the same conclusion like yours? Had you finished reading the book, you could have shared with us your insight: "Ten common mistakes to avoid in plot development". Question: Why is Don Quixote so popular in literature? It is a tale of a hero doing the improbable and the implausible.
  2. It means what this young girl is facing in the call to compromise her morals is what Joseph was facing while he was serving in Potiphar's house. I was trying to draw a parallel between the two plots.
  3. Instead of going back to locate that awful decision scene, at least for our sake, can you finish reading the book and then let us know? Does the protagonist improve learning from her mistakes? Is there a redemption at the end of the story? Even if there is none of these, does the book work well as a cautionary tale, as a warning to young girls who might likely commit such a dumb mistake? We cannot easily pre-guess the end-game authors are after; sometimes they make fool of us. Help us to see what kind of author this one is. Just a modest request.
  4. What if the heroine, in a surprising turn around, redeems herself and achieves a spectacular finish? What if she repented and God gave her a second chance? What if the whole purpose of the book is to prove this Word: “You are to say to them: This is what the LORD says: Do people fall and not get up again? If they turn away, do they not return?" (Jerm. 8:4) Should we stop reading David's story once we see he committing adultery and committing a crime of murder? Would we turn away from the Book in disgust because we could not figure out how such a person like David makes such a fooli
  5. "I'd really like ones that deal with a young woman who's very unwilling to compromise on her morals. The prompt can be as specific or vague as you are able to come up with other than that." That is the Joseph Lure. Develop a scene where the young woman will be exposed to enticing words in one of these lines and bombarded with them day after day to erode her morals. 1). "Everybody is doing it. So what makes you unique? You must flow with the current. I do not understand your reason why you make yourself a strange person among normal people." 2)
  6. Here is one case of an author whose experience may resonate with you. 1). The author's experience with her book The author reported that she has received multiple rejections before finally one publisher decided to publish her book. The book has now received some accolades, winning the author some awards. 2). My experience reading the book When I first started reading the book (because it was a required reading), I nearly gave up on the first pages. I could not figure out where the story was going. But I have to persist. The story got interesting as it progre
  7. That is a new line of protestation. First point. From what we know so far, fallen mankind does not need any extra assistance coming from the Bible to fashion instruments of destruction or to do evil. Fallen humanity has that innate capacity and Jesus came to deliver us from the power of Evil. Therefore, the Word will not be revealed in its scientific dimension to help mankind to wax in evil, to compound misery. That can never be the purpose of God. Second point. The coming revelation is to downgrade the pride of man. One area of life where humanity have lifted up the

  9. I just posted the blog: "God & Science (Part II)". You can find it here: https://christianwriters.com/blogs/ The blog, as I said, contains an illustrative excerpt from a larger project to prove the point I have been trying to make here. The excerpt is taken from the 'middle section' of a larger project, and hence it does not include the preceding sections where I laid down the groundwork for my interpretative scheme. My example is just one SIMPLE example of what the Bible contains in terms of science and technology. I strongly believe t
  10. My first posting on the subject has said: " I am strongly convinced the Bible will soon reveal to us "how to split an atom, or cure cancer." In my study of the Bible (which has been going on for several years), I have started to see evidences of scientific knowledge throbbing behind the "fairly tales"." My point has been that (i) from the evidence I have started to see the Bible contains scientific knowledge, (ii) I (and probably others too) have started to see the "outskirts" of His science knowledge and wisdom, and (iii) gradually the whole scientific knowledge contained in the B
  11. I have already said: "and primarily a theological book how to get salvation." However, many do not like to come to salvation because they 'worship' and denigrate the Bible. Many scientists would say "why should I believe in a book full of fairy tales, a book which contradicts science?" Even for many others the Bible is just a book of faith and ethics. So what is the use of the philosophical and the scientific interpretation of the Bible? It is to demonstrate to the whole world that the God of the Bible is the True God, a God of all wisdom and knowledge. It is to humble al
  12. What? That God has atom-related science put in the Bible thousands years before any scientist (well before Dalton, Bohrs, and Einstein) start to unravel the mystery of the atom? The problem of disclosing such knowledge from the Bible will be esoteric or 'too much reading' into an ancient text. . I admire this question. It is this kind question my kind must answer -- using the Bible -- to convince the scientific community. My answer is, "Not yet." I am still as some one who darkly see through the mirror. I have seen only the glimpses of His Wisdom. "And t
  13. Your are correct John. At the first level of encounter, "yes" the Bible is all of the following: a historical document, a source of wisdom for everyday living, and primarily a theological book how to get salvation. However, the Bible is the virtual mind of God. The Bible is God's mind, expressed in words and its infinite wisdom and knowledge veiled behind stories and sayings. But the Bible, as the mind of God, has many layers which require some digging and revelation to disclose its full and true contents. One of the layers of the Bible (yet to be disclosed) is its scie
  14. Yes, we do. But before the 1900's, before when humanity started to understand the makeup of the atom and the great energy tied in it, did any anyone understood that concept of atomic structure and atomic energy, in all its scientific dimensions? Can someone stand before a group of physicists and show to them that atomic concepts, formulas, and principles are already in the Bible? This is not about faith. It is about going foot-to-foot with the scientists on their own terms, meeting them on their own empirical and conceptual grounds.
  15. I am strongly convinced the Bible will soon reveal to us "how to split an atom, or cure cancer." In my study of the Bible (which has been going on for several years), I have started to see evidences of scientific knowledge throbbing behind the "fairly tales". Behind all those "old fashioned" rituals, family feuds, wars, miracles, sayings, etc., is hidden natural/ scientific knowledge which the moderns have discovered with great labor over several centuries. The Bible as the mind of God is a scientific book of the highest order. The only thing is that its "scientific" id
