About the Book

The Creation, Eden, the fall of man, Cain and Abel, Noah’s ark, the great flood, and the Tower of Babel from the Old Testament of the Bible are old stories familiar to most people; through thought-provoking exploration and cross-cultural comparison, however, new perspectives and insights are shed onto them. By associating what Jesus preached to people with both history and modern times, some universal truth in His teaching can be found. Read through the book, and you may understand that building a harmonious and prosperous world is the common aspiration of all people in the world, regardless of race or nationality. Jesus and Mohammad are both bridges between God and human beings, as well as bridges between the ideal and reality. Communism is another name of worldly heaven. Believing God, aspiring to worldly heaven and seeking communism are both pursuing the highest standard of truth, virtue, and beauty. Therefore, instead of fighting for a different name, people with different beliefs should promote communication and understanding and develop together.


About the Author

Benedict Wang is a Chinese teacher teaching English for the university students in a Chinese university, Hubei Institute for Nationalities. He became interested in the Bible while he was a university student. Two years ago he began to offer Selective Reading of the Bible Stories as an optional course for the university students. Every year, roughly three hundred students choose this course. While giving lectures, he made further research and improved spiritually together with his students. He organized his thoughts into this book. After getting to Harding University in 2013, he attended the college Church of Christ frequently and was helped by several missionaries, especially Dr. Ed Higginbotham. These experiences cleared his doubts and confirmed his belief in Jesus Christ and the salvation of God.
