    I was recently given this book. I let it sit for a few days, a bit intimidated by it. For, though my mindset is pretty much the same, it has been years since I have been challenged. Honestly, I had gotten a little soft in my views. I was pleased to find this book a necessary read. Believer X will most definitely rouse you from your sleep... It is important to put away your preconceived ideas about the author or his book, thus, NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER comes into play here. His style is the antithesis of seminarian theology, for which we all should be thankful for! The author is very clever, possibly genius, in using different fonts and repeating words to cause the reader to pause. Being a speed reader, I have read much bigger books more quickly, but you get over the frustration when you realize that there is a reason, which he states at the beginning of the book. You cannot help but comprehend what he has to say, whether you agree with him or not. For any offenses, he makes... More > his intentions clear and that is acceptable. He is straight-forward and emphatic because he has a real concern to get across. At the heart of it all, he wants us to be aware of the hypocrisy, the "duplicitous" manipulations in the mainstream church concerning Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage. Note that "all" sexual sin (brief mention), tithing, false versus sound doctrine are among several topics covered, as well. He cannot get his point across by writing a dreamy novel. He pulls out all the stops, with the intent of waking you up, in a house that is on fire. Thank you, Believer X! I come away from reading this book with a new appreciation for this author, further concreted in these biblical principals he sets forth for us. He is not getting a mega royalty book deal out of this. He is not getting anything AT ALL. Yet,for those of us who agree with him, I think we deserve a sequel. :)< Less

    Not sure why mojo6 and lastblast7 are complaining. This is a good book and the author uses an example of a word intended to evoke a visceral reaction, just as God does throughout the Old Testament. I found it to be rather enlightening, especially considering He (God Almighty) refers to His wife Israel and her sister Judah as "whores." I guess mojo needs to go yell at God and tell Him to clean up His mouth! HA HA HA! What a sad commentary it is that people get more upset about the WORDS (whore, whoremonger, etc.) that denote immorality than the immorality (the author's wife's WHORING) actually being committed. And the Old Testament stories about Noah and the Ark, etc. etc. etc. are not literal but allegorical. Anyone who thinks these things actually happened as described is a complete idiot. (And I am not even sure why that matters because that subject isn't even a part of this book.) Small wonder why the secular world looks at "The Church" as irrational,... More > hypocritical, and utterly divorced (pun) from reality. The author has courage to say what NO pastor I've heard would dare state regarding God's DEMAND of us on marriage and Holiness. Good for him.< Less

    In this book, Believer X claims to be a prophet of God and wants the reader to hop on board to be his disciple so he can teach you his great wisdom. He has no compunctions using profanity or calling his estranged wife a whore.

    This is a very tough (not hard, just tough) book to read but Beliver X has uncovered scriptural truths that are COMPLETELY ignored by the Modern Christian Church. I have had to read it four or five times to even realize the depth of what is covered. This is information that is SORELY lacking in Christianity. I urge everyone to get a copy of this and then share it with your friends. It is shocking, compelling, and something that you cannot ignore. Well worth the money and time. As for the shameful and libelous review by lastblast7, it seems obvious to me she has not read it. I know she has an agenda against the author and is on a personal witch hunt, stalking him like Jezebel all over the Internet. Her complaints about his theology have zero bearing on the book written here. However, if one wishes to argue the point, take it up with Jesus Christ who said, "All the Prophets and the Law *PROPHESIED* until John." - Matthew 11:13. The Law and the Prophets are the OLD TESTAMENT... More > stories that lastblast insists *MUST* be literal, historical accounts. Christ seems to say otherwise. Regardless, getting wrapped up in debates about "Jewish myths" as Paul warned against is unprofitable. This book clearly and thoroughly addresses the truth about the covenant of marriage and goes into great detail to explain why the modern church refuses to hold to God's clear standard on the issue. An absolute must-read.< Less

    Just a heads up on this author: Yes, he is correct in his views on marriage, divorce, remarriage, but he also teaches that the Bible is written and to be understood as an allegory/parable. None of the people/stories in the Bible are literal. He believes the creation account as written did not literally happen, nor did the flood, nor the wandering in the desert 40 years, etc. If you are looking for books on the topic of Divorce/Remarriage written by authors who DO view the Bible in a literal as well as Spiritual way, there are much better books out there. I do not recommend this book at all. I feel the author misleads potential readers by only addressing the marriage issue, when that is only a SMALL part of what the book is actually about.
