Reviews - What do customers think about New Discoveries in the Divine Inspiration of the Bible?
Manifestation by God Sep 16, 2009
This book is definitely a manifestation by God to prove Himself as the only and true author of the Bible, proving too, that the whole Bible is one whole as having the supreme object and subject: JESUS CHRIST.
I would recommend this book to every believer and every unbeliever.
The way Werner Adrian deals with this holy subject may be very unorthodox, yet - and for this reason specially - it is very worthwhile reading, and the reader should desire earnestly to spend time on this most valuable subject.

Everything leads to JESUS Jun 26, 2009
Werner Adrian analyses the whole Bible referring to the numerical value of its words. That seems to be on the first view an astonishing method but it reveals at last the real wonder that is manifested by the Bible and the contents of the words chosen by its writers. It leads without any doubt to the conclusion that the spirit of GOD Himself directed the different writers. Although we believers are not dependent on any proof of that kind, the book of Werner Adrian gives us fresh impulses for our spiritual life. The Bible is really an artistic divine work of the HOLY SPIRIT from beginning to end - the 66 books being divinely chosen. I myself was very impressed.
Numerological garbage May 3, 2009
This work is obviously a load of numerological garbage (a la the Bible Code) that is supposed to prove the divine authority and character of the Bible:
"Discover how the numeric value of words demonstrates the astonishingly perfect harmony between the 66 books of the Bible. Further, read as Werner Adrain reveals that the Holy Scriptures contain hidden references to the name of Jesus Christ in the Old Testament and His connection to every book of the Bible. You will gain a newfound understanding that God's Word was written by Him and not by the words or influence of man." (front flap)
The copyright page says that the "Hebrew evaluations are derived from the Interlinear NIV Hebrew-English Old Testament..." with a similar statement about "Greek evaluations." In other words, Mr. Adrain doesn't know Hebrew or Greek. What he does know are the Greek and Hebrew alphabets and their numerical value (like Latin numerals: I, V, X, etc.). He then adds up the values of biblical phrases and comes to "remarkable" conclusions, such as that huios tou anthrpou (the Son of Man) adds up to twice that of Christos (3). Such numerological observations are supposed to show us that "the Bible is not a dry book, nor Christianity a dry religion" (8). I had this site show me a random page, and it just gets stranger: "The Lord's birth in Luke 2:7 Is verse 24981 in Scripture (plus the writer Luke 721) is 25702, which Is 181 PEACE x 142 MANNA !" (234) I'm not even sure what he's doing there.
One could numerically analyze any book that way and come up with "remarkable" results, which is the exact same way that the so-called Bible Code works. What is interesting about such numerological works is not that they are absurd, but how they reveal a serious problem in Christianity today: people want to make the Bible meaningful and relevant somehow, and just reading the Bible for its plain, literal meaning isn't working. The attempt to find the name Jesus in the Old Testament is, of course, a theological problem that goes back to the four Evangelists themselves.
Personally, I do believe that the Bible is a remarkable book. You can find that out if you just read it for what it says, not to find some esoteric gnosis.
