Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976008092, Paperback)"Sodom and Gomorrah: What Really Happened" provides a fresh new perspective on one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted Bible stories. Contrary to common belief, this is not an episode about homosexuality. Dr. Errico takes the reader into the ancient Near Eastern world, retelling the narrative from the Aramaic language and dream/vision interpretation. The early Aramaic speaking Eastern Church Fathers understood that all appearances of God and angels that were recorded in Holy Scripture were dreams or visions. The Hebrew patriarchs and prophets who saw these heavenly apparitions were either asleep or in a trance state. In addition to this, the biblical scribes also embellished the narratives with their beliefs and cultural understanding of those ancient times. With all the above in mind the reader can quickly comprehend what really took place in this calamitous biblical episode. Whether one regards the story as myth or history, the narrative needs to be perceived from a Near Eastern outlook, especially for that era. This brief but enlightening book is presented in story form. In portraying the Near Eastern biblical customs and manners, it also clarifies what the writer is attempting to teach and provides answers to many of the questions often asked regarding the true message of Sodom and Gomorrah.
