What Is We To You?!

Larry Odell Johnson

I use an autobiographical approach to unpack a cryptographical interpretation or content analysis of the first four chapters of the King James Version (KJV) of the Holy Scriptures. This analysis is designed to present the semiotic and hermeneutical underpinnings of the Scriptures in raw everyday terms avoiding the murkier waters of those studies which divert believers away from the discussion of specific immoral behavior. Behavior which God purposed the Scriptures to make plain. Given this study, I am obliged to stipulate that the Holy Scriptures are divinely written!

Meaning can be found in many places-some expected, others more obscure. This book's primary endeavor is to examine some of the earliest texts in the Bible, primarily the first four chapters of Genesis, and examine them to see if the story of Adam and Eve is simply an allegory or if there are hidden meanings and messages in deliberate word choices. The author also includes a useful epilogue of similarly coded words using anagrams to either help decipher the code for those who struggle with the method used in the book and need some extra hints or those who want to use the same method to reconstruct more text and language.--Michael Radon, US Review of Books

What is We To You? is a book every self-conscious and evolving adult needs to read. There are many crucial discussions initiated by the reader, discussions that make the reading more entertaining. Some of the topics that are analyzed in the book include racism, social structures, colorism, religion, friendship, poverty, education, politics, family, and issues like poverty. Larry Odell Johnson also intensely discusses Bible scriptures and gives a profound analysis of the scriptures. I especially admired the illustrations on Able and Cain, as the author made me better understand my spiritual side. The biggest takeaway from this book is that, as individuals, we need to be conscious of what we do and appreciate life as it comes.-Aaron Washington, Pacific Book Review
