The Three Daughters of Abraham

Front Cover
Trafford Publishing, 2003 - Bibles - 100 pages

I wrote this book after much study following Sept. 11, 2001. I saw enough so that I felt the need to make my findings available to others. Now, after much more study, my views have developed considerably. There is value in what I had seen before. It was part of my journey to getting where I am now. To the extent that I was in error, it was mostly that I was still taking much of what I read literally.

I now realize that the Bible was always meant to be interpreted figuratively. My recent studies and revelations are concerning the Garden of Eden, the Sword of the Lord, and Paul's thorn in the flesh. These things and more are closely related.

About the author (2003)

Donald L. Shaffer grew up in a small non-denominational church. Several years ago he was drawn into deep personal studies on certain issues. The first was concerning the Trinity doctrine. Then there was a period of studying in order to explain supposed Bible contradictions. Those studies gave him an appreciation of the Bible that he never had before.

Then, about two years before the writing of this book his church was between pastors. He offered to carry on the mid-week Bible studies. For about six months they studied various things, much of it concerning prophecy. They studied parts of Daniel, Ezekiel, and Revelation.

In those studies he saw things that he didn't for a while realize the significance of. These things, which he didn't realize were related, over some time came together. It became clear that he was coming to conclusions that weren't teachings of the church. He then realized why the people didn't agree with what he was seeing.

Sometimes one feels so strongly about something that he has to put it in writing; hence, this book. Most of the things that he saw in those six months of leading the Bible studies are in the first half of the book. Most of the second half addresses things that he found in his personal study since September 11, 2001.
