Item description for The Potter's Beloved by Charlotte Mecklenburg...
Charlotte Mecklenburg lives in the Northwest and graduated from Eugene Bible College in Oregon with a BSS degree. She also attended University of Washington as well as the University of Oklahoma for linguistic studies. She and her husband Frank lived in Papua New Guinea with the Faiwol people. While they were there they wrote down the Faiwol language, studied the grammar and phonemic system. An alphabet was established and primers were made. Following this small village classes for adult readers were set up to teach the people how to read. Frank and Charlotte as a team translated traditional stories, government information for the people and also the book of Genesis and the New Testament for the people. At the present time the government is using these materials in their schools for the Faiwol children. Since then Charlotte has been studying Hebrew and its culture more extensively with the hope of seeing languages that have New Testaments also have the First Covenant. This would give Faiwol and many languages like them a complete Bible.

Makes Bible even more realistic Aug 31, 2008
Even though this is listed as fiction which I think technically it is, it is so based on Scripture that it is much like a commentary. I can tell that the author has done lots of research that result in interesting ideas of what might have been behind the scenes of the Bible without descrediting the Bible at all. There is some theology that comes through that not everyone is going to agree with, but what else is new. It is interesting reading, very readable, and the chapters are a good practical length. I would suggest that the words on this site "Written in Hebrew" should be removed as it gives the impression that the text is in Hebrew. Let me assure you that it is in English.
Jim liked this book!! Aug 21, 2008
This was an easy and delightful read. It helps one understand the flow of the characters in the Bible. Lots of fun. I can't quite decide, although it reads very well for all audiences maybe the young adults may be who would benefit most from this book.
