Guest Post: The Biblical Clock by Daniel Friedmann

The creation-evolution controversy is a recurring cultural, political, and theological dispute about the origins of the Earth, humanity, life, and the universe. The gallop poll from June 2014 confirms that more than four in 10 Americans continue to believe that God created humans in their present form. What is going on? Kids are taught evolution in school and creationism in Sunday school with both authorities claiming to be right.

Have you tried to discuss the topic with your teenage kids?  I have; they are confused!  And until I worked through the issue and wrote my books, I could not make much progress in clarifying the topic to their satisfaction despite my strong scientific background, having been trained as a physics engineer, working in space-related areas for 30 years, and my religious knowledge on the topic acquired over more than a decade of studies.

My new book The Biblical Clock provides an in-depth exploration of the development of the universe, evolution of human history and prophecies that surround the End of Days from a religious and scientific perspective. By combining both bodies of knowledge, we can get a better understanding of our past and our future.

What will surprise readers the most is that the timeline for the development of the universe as detailed by science and as contained in the bible match and that the bible says science will be able to understand everything that happened in the development of the universe except one thing: the beginning. The instant before the big bang theory begins to work.

Whether you are a believer or non-believer, or someone not committed to one or the other perspective yet but curious about whether their apparently disparate explanations and timelines for our origins and outlook on the future are reconcilable, then this book is for you.

The Biblical Clock provides us with the information that helps us estimate the timing of future events from the cosmic plan and actual history in an easy to understand language.

As Author David Menefee said it:

“An eye-opening narrative that guides you on the twisting trail to truth about the sands of time and God’s great hourglass. Impeccably detailed, brilliantly researched.”

After you read the book, you will be in a better position to discuss the topic with your teenagers, which was one of my motivations to write the book. Best of all, as a family, you can spend quality time having a discussion about science, religion, the universe and the meaning and purpose of life.

Authors:  Sharon Linnea & B.K. Sherer

Genre: Mystery/thriller

Book 1 in the Eden Thrillers Series

Bring home the lost sword…

U.S. Army Chaplin Jamie Richards is stunned when her civilian friend Adara Dunbar staggers, mortally wounded, out of the Iraqui night with an urgent “package” for Jamie to drop at the ruins of the ancient city of Ur, now inside a U.S. military base. Jamie is soon pulled into a labyrinth of five-thousand-year-old secrets as she joins forces with Adara’s mysterious brother on a quest through Ur, Babylon, Baghdad, and Iraq’s southern swamps to save a hidden treasure that treacherous men are willing to launch a war to find.

A smart and suspenseful-hold-on-to-your-seat-race to find the site of the original Garden of Eden.


I received a free audio version of this book for an honest review.

Chasing Eden is full of suspense as well as history including Biblical history. In fact, although the history was interesting, it was a little more in depth than I liked but that’s just a personal preference. I found myself having to rewind a few times because my mind started drifting.

The characters are interesting. Poor Jamie has had a lot of loss in her life but she has done a good job of moving on and dedicating her life to helping others. As she thought at one point in the book, she is her job. Adara’s brother is one of those characters who is larger than life but it fits in this story. Everyone in this book is either good or evil. The main characters are truly good souls and the villains are truly evil.

I definitely recommend Chasing Eden especially if you like suspense. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
