Item description for The Secret of Rhonda Byrne or The Law of Attraction in the Bible by Ben David...
"The Secret of Rhonda Byrne" or "The Law of Attraction" is not a new concept. In fact,it isn't a secret at all. The law of attraction was first promulgated by some of theearliest wise men, and it appears again and again throughout the Bible. But very fewpeople have learned or understand it.That's why it's unfamiliar to many and the reason it remains virtually a secret.If you were to ask one man after another what the secret of success is, you probably wouldn't run into one man who could tell you. Yet, this information is enormously valuable to us, if we really understand and apply it. It's valuable to us not only for our own lives, but for the lives of those around us - our families, employees, associates and friends. The principles of the Secret - the principles of success, appear again and again throughout the Bible, if you only look carefully.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Secret of Rhonda Byrne or The Law of Attraction in the Bible?
Hmmmm... No, I don't think so. Jun 12, 2008
Rambling, poorly written, with precious little actual content; this seems almost like something from a blog stretched out and padded to look like a book.
The Secret of Rhonda Byrne? (If Rhonda Byrne has any personal secrets, I surely don't care about them.) The Law of Attracrtion in the Bible? (I'm sorry, I didn't see any concrete chapter and verse statements to agree with or refute The Law of Attraction.) There were Biblical references, some stuff that seemed like it might be Biblical, incomplete and out-of-context statements... Is there an editor here? Hello? Editor in the house?
Ramble, ramble, ramble, ramble. Not even worth a flip-through at the library. That's my perception of it.

I expected this book to be chock full of Biblical facts to support or refute "The Secret." This is not the case.
The book has several punctuation/spelling errors. Was there no editor?
It is only 100 pages. The font is large and everything is spaced far apart. The book could have been written in 50 pages to save paper.
There are "quotes" throughout the book that are meant to make a person think they are from the Bible, however, no verse/chapter is referenced so unless one is Biblically savvy, one cannot tell if they are from the Good Book or not.
I looked up many of the scriptures which are referenced and most of them are taken out of context. For example...
Numbers 13:33 And we seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same (like grasshoppers) in their eyes.
If you read the whole chapter in the Bible, the reason they seemed like grasshoppers was because the people were very tall (giants). Period. No secrets. No hidden message. They didn't really "think" they were grasshoppers, therefore, everyone believed they were grasshoppers. It was just a tall/short thing.
Sometimes the chapter of a verse is listed but not the verse number. When I tried to find the verse being referenced, I couldn't. So, I'm not sure if they are really verses or not.
The author talks about evolution as if it is real. (Maybe it is, maybe it isn't but many Christians believe evolution is a fallacy. Why even mention it in this book?)
He also says that whether we believe that God rules the universe or some other power rules it, it doesn't matter. The principles are all the same. It all works the same.
How many God-fearing Christians do you know who believe this? (Between this theory and the aforementioned evolution, I have to wonder if the author is a Christian at all?)
Perhaps the biggest secret of all is how this book ever got published. You will not find the answers you seek here. It is far better to get them from the Bible yourself.

I read both The Secret and this book. I had a real hard time staying focused on "The Secret" because it said the same thing over and over in different words it was boring. This book however really turned out to be an eye opener, the different ways to pray really helped me as well and I am seeing very positive beneficial changes in my life that I never thought would happen. I think this book is a great companion to "The Secret" if you have read that and if you have a hard time staying focused on reading material this book is short, sweet and sums things up in an easy to understand interesting way.
