I’ll admit I was a tad bit skeptical about what I was going to be getting into at first. My religion is very important to me. I am a firm believer in studying and garnering information from different sources to build upon my knowledge and understanding.
What impressed me most about this book from the start was the author’s care to respect the Scriptures and not defunct them but add onto what Christians believe to be true about the Bible and Creation. There first chapter lays out the foundation clearly for the reader to know what to expect while reading The Broken Gift chapter by chapter.
Even if you are clueless about world history, Mr. Friedmann easily intertwines brief history lessons into each chapter so you can easily see how world history correlates to Biblical history.
I’ll be the first to admit – I’m a self-proclaimed nerd. This book has tables, figures, timelines, lists and references galore that grabbed my attention. I was quickly engrossed with relating the history I’d studied for years in school with the history I’d been taught in church and through my independent studies. This book brought back fond memories of a World Religions course I took years ago that helped spark my zeal for knowledge when it came to my faith.
