Item Description...
Defending the Books of Ecclesiastes' true message, this is a Christian apologetic text, a reasoned argument. This argument simply demands the rules of Hebrew grammar, rejecting myths and legends. The reader discovers clearly identifiable women who are champions over adversity, true spiritual leaders, and prominent biblical authors. Incoherent passages suddenly become clear, expressing truths as applicable today as they were three thousand years ago.

And the real translation?  Jul 17, 2005
When the Bible was translated from Aramaic into Greek, were the translators careful about how they did it? Or did they let their culture and their prejudices guide how the translation went? Floyd D. Braggs explores these issues in BETTER OFF BORN DEAD. He uses the book of Ecclesiastes, which is translated from Greek and was apparently written by King Solomon. However, translated from the original Hebrew, the name of the book was Qoheleth, which is, according to Strong's Concordance, a feminine word. Bragg points out when Ecclesiastes was written Solomon wasn't alive, so it had to be someone else who wrote it. He comes to the conclusion that it was King David's daughter and Solomon's sister, Tamar, who was the author. Reading Ecclesiastes from a female point of view changes the entire meaning of this book of the Bible. Tamar is showing her anger at the way women are being treated by men in her culture.

Bragg discusses the early Catholic Church and how the church wished to keep women subjugated to men. The church was very much against the common members of the church reading the Bible at all. They preferred to tell the people what it said rather than have them read it for themselves and see it differently than they had always been told. As a result, the first translators were killed for their efforts.

As a woman, it was sheer joy to read another version of Ecclesiastes. It was pleasurable to find out that 3,000 years ago, Tamar could show her anger at men for their desire to dominate women. Bragg also uses the scriptures in Genesis to show that God had no intention for men to dominate women, but for men and women to be partners. It was the original translators who put women in a position lower than that of men. Tamar, being a Qoheleth, was a female preacher, yet today in many churches, women are forced to be silent according to many ministers' understanding of the Bible. This is a must read for anyone interested in the Christian religion and the position of women in the church. It is a true eye-opener.

a scholarly page-turner  Feb 2, 2005
It's no secret; church attendance is down across the globe. Mainstream Catholicism and Christianity are not meeting the needs of their flocks, particularly not their female parishioners who are either virtually ignored, or scorned, in the most widely-used versions of the bible.
Carefully crafted, ingeniously written, "Better Off Born Dead" blows the doors off of the Vatican. With his common- sense approach to decoding the language of the ancient texts, Braggs's doesn't rewrite history: he uncovers it. Using his knowledge of grammar, Braggs's points out where ancient scholars went wrong and reveals to his readers the diary of the greatest preacher of the Old Testament, Princess Tamar of David. That's right, the diary of a Female Preacher.
Women everywhere of Judeo-Christian backgrounds will cheer as they traverse the pages of "Better Off Born Dead." On page 48, after revealing the identity of the author of The Books of Qoheleth as Princess Tamar, the female preacher, Braggs's says, "To me, the greatest wisdom a person can demonstrate is to accept God, rather than reject God as Solomon did....Solomon may be the wisest man and no other man will be like him. But was he the wisest person? Tamar chooses God and eternal life. Solomon Chooses sin, which leads to eternal death." Braggs goes on to say, "Because Solomon is the wisest man that will ever be and he selected sin, then the wisdom and intellectual forecasts for the average man alive today appear to be exceptionally bleak, dark, and cloudy at best with pea soup fog rolling around tomorrow." How is that for a little equality under the eyes of God? Speaking of equality, Braggs potentially proves that Men and Women were created equal when he revisits Genesis in a later chapter.
"Better Off Born Dead" is a scholarly page-turner. When viewed through Braggs's brilliant decoding methods, the bible isn't just a boys club any more, and it appears that the women's movement was not only Holy- sanctioned, but alive and well long before The Feminine Mystique. Biblical scholars (male and female alike), thanks to Braggs, can rejoice, weep, and experience The Books of Qoheleth, the way they were meant to be told: Through the eyes of a woman oppressed by male society, but blessed by the wisdom of Spirit.
Centuries ago, Braggs would have been burned as a heretic for sharing his glorious revelations. In today's slightly more enlightened society, his courageous revelations may save a dying religion. I am looking forward to Braggs's next installment in this revolutionary trilogy!
