The authors of the blockbuster book The Bible Code claim that God inserted hidden prophetic messages within the original Hebrew letters of the Old Testament. Their claims have been hailed by many as a new revelation from God. But does The Bible Code hold up to scrutiny? In this well-researched response, best-selling authors John Weldon and Clifford Wilson explain the mechanics of the code in layman's terms, examining its use and message. The authors show how simple it is to manipulate words to create almost any message, and how the core themes presented in The Bible Code are consistent with the teachings of most cults.
Is there a secret code within the Bible that outlines future events like The Bible Code proclaims? Responding to those claims, Decoding the Bible Code is a well-researched examination of the "code" and the faulty methodology and reasoning behind it.
