    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Great and again Great
    For me that has trouble reading the bible in any translation - this has truly been a God send.While on my daily 1hr 15 min commute in the car - you get wisked away by the message of God's words.It truly helps me put an image with the things that I have read in the bible.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Most Ambitious Bible Project to Date
    Finally.Not just a reading or recitation of the Holy Scriptures but a re-enactment of them.The words leap and dance off of the page due to the passion infused into every word.What a wonderful project.This is indeed a sight and sound generation.Try getting kids to sit down and read a book these days.Impossible!But now we have The Bible Experience.It's packed with more stars than a blockbuster movie.Although the cast is entirely African American, it makes no difference because when God speaks, he speaks to every person.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Great Experience

    1-0 out of 5 stars Another Prophetic Disappointment
    In "Epicenter" Joel Rosenberg provides the background information that drives his novels about the Middle East and the end times.This nonfiction book will grab readers' attention due to its analysis of current events through the lenses of politics and economics.However, Rosenberg insists that a third lens of biblical prophecy is necessary in order to truly understand what is happening in the Middle East today.But is Rosenberg's third lens properly focused?Has he understood Ezekiel's prophecies correctly?
    5-0 out of 5 stars Joel Rosenberg; Uncanny Visionary!
    Joel Rosenberg a former Jewish convert to Christianity seems to have the most uncanny grasp on recent modern events. His Jewish background gives him a greater than usual empasis on old testament teachings and prophency. When the fiction books he was writng began to come true after he wrote them he and his associates were surprised to say the least. I saw him in a seminar relate the events of 911 that eclipsed the writing of his book The Last Jihad. Then he stated his next fiction book came true while he was writing it! Now he has released a "non fiction" book! We must keep an eye on the events unfolding, and if indeed we see things happening that this book forcasts not only will it prove its prophesy, but will certainly as he says change our future. i think the jury is still out, but these events indeed bear careful scrutiny and watching, and if proven by time demand a Christian response. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A True Classic
    I knew about this book, of course, because I'm an academic, but hadn't read in it since it's out of my field and I'm not religious.
    5-0 out of 5 stars SUPREME EXCELLENCE.
    St.Thomas Aquinas has always been a very solid and firm foundation for the Church.I have always loved this Saint from the very first days of becoming a Roman Catholic.I am amazed at the excellence of this work and constantly refer to this work for any of my own personal questions I may have about God.This is an awesome set to own ! I highly recommend to purchase your own set of the Summa. Thanks to God for giving us this wonderful Saint ...........the Great St. Thomas Aquinas.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The foundation of modern Christendom
    How can one over-emphasize the role St. Thomas Aquinas 'Summa Theologica' has played in the modern mind, let alone the Christian one?Whether you are Protestant, Catholic, or Orthodox, Thomas' masterwork is a must for anyone who is seriously interested in systematic or historical theology, the history of philosophy or philosophy generally, and anyone who would like to know what one of the most erudite minds in the history of Western Christendom has said on the nature of God, humankind, and everything in between.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
    I am absolutely loving this bible. It gives me the opportunity to use a translation that I grew up on (NIV), and a translation that makes me feel like I am sitting next to Jesus on a streetcorner talking things over with him (the message). This is a great bibile for just about anyone who is interested in God's word. It's like getting two bibles for the price (and a low price at that) of one. The only downside I see is that it doesn't have any study footnotes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Message Parallel Bible
    This Bible is one of the best I have used.I like being able to see both translations side by side.Sometimes I like the NIV translation especially in Psalms but the Message speaks in terms I recognize and relate to. It speaks clearly and there is no misunderstanding the message.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very helpful
    I teach a ladies' Sunday School class and having the parallel version enables me to compare the two versions and share with them.I love it for my personal study also. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easily Understandable
    I am not new to christianity, but I am new to reading the bible and knowing of the events that took place.I found this extremely useful as a bible and I absolutely love how Joyce Meyer relates the information to daily living.For me, it makes it easier to understand when I can relate it to my daily life. I would not consider this a study bible, I actually consider it my bible. I read from this bible and carry it to church.Joyce Meyer includes "Life Points" within the pages, along with prayers and other information from her.I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a clear understanding of the bible.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I guess that depends on how you define "study"
    I know that the term "study Bible" is usually used for a Bible that has like 3 or 5 cross-references for each verse, and when a couple of times I tried to look them up I was always wondering in exactly what way that cross-reference could be helpful or deepen my understanding of God's Word... %\. It is nice to know that this or that word appears in those and that verses all over the Bible and stuff, but HOW IS IT HELPFUL?
    3-0 out of 5 stars But yes, it IS claimed to be a study bible!
    I am a faithful Joyce Meyer's fan, and I watch her program M-F every week. Her new, upcoming (and now here)Everyday Life Bible is being advertised several times per program. And yes, folks, during that television commercial (and I listened this morning specifically for this, after reading the below reviews) it IS touted as being a STUDY BIBLE. I can't give my actual review as I have not yet seen it's contents....but am unfortunately forced here to rate it numerically! But I CAN tell you how it is advertised. I can only surmise that despite either accolades or disappointments, either way, it seems reader's appear to be disappointed with the lack of study tools inside. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Don't jump to conclusions
    Dr. Ehrman is a favorite of this reviewer and for that reason I hate to bring the rathing average down with my three stars. But, it cannot be avoided.The author's communication skills and flowing writing style are wonderful as in his other books. The content and the subject he covers are very good and at a good level of study for the layman. The service he has done in bringing out this study in popular form cannot be overemphasized and for that he is to be commended. However, I think his conclusions are based on his protestant experience which ignores the role that church tradition has played in the formation of the texts. This is unfortunate considering Dr. Ehrman's unquestioned encyclopedic knowledge of early church history. This book will make shakey ground for the evangelical Christian with dogmatic assumptions about scriptures.It will not put a dent in the armor of the Roman Catholic or Orthodox Christian however. Dr. Ehrman's non-antagonistic approach to the subject and his admirable attempt to remain objective while expressing the very findings that led to his own apostasy does him great credit as a scholar. For the research work background and as an introduction to this field of study, you will find this book quite helpful. But remember not to be jump too quickly to Dr. Ehrman's conclusions.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Take on the Transmission of Biblical Text
    I am writing this review at someone who has always been interested in knowing why we are here and what does it all mean. I read Bart Ehrman's other book on Truth and Fiction in the Da Vinci Code and found it to be very interesting. When I saw he also wrote a book on the problems in transmitting biblical text from the originals (which don't exist), I wanted to read it.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Careful Work Of Scholarship
    Don't buy this book expecting some major "bombshells" about how the Bible has been intentionally and substanially altered over the course of it's history. This book has nothing in common with the conspiracy theories of the "Da Vinci Code." Instead it is a cautious work by one of the world's foremost scholars in the field of textual criticism. Textual critics realize that we no longer have the original manuscripts on which the New Testament was based. So they study the earliest manuscripts available to determine what parts may have been changed before being collected as the canon of the New Testament.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New thoughts for an "old" Christian
    I thought I had heard every angle, every "sermon" topic in my 40 years of being a Christian and growing up in the faith.Miller managed to make me see things in a new light...from an undiscovered angle.I was moved and awed by many of his insights.As I read, my family was in the car together on a trip.I found myself reading many of his anecdotes outloud to my 10 & 13 year old children.They enjoyed his story about "Pete", the totally dorky kid Miller knew in school.It led to a great discussion about nerds that my own kids knew, and what really makes a person popular, and is it really so important?
    4-0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile read
    Donald Miller's "Searching for God Knows What" is a worthwhile read for dedicated followers of Christ.Mr. Miller has an unusual way of making Christians think outside the common culture of modern Christianity.He does this with a confrontational and non-traditional style, as well as a non-conservative social/political perspective, which are considered irreverent by more pious members of the Christian community.All and all his style and sound biblical interpretation have inspired me as he presents many profound truths and inequities that are common in the modern Christial community.I recommend this book, as well as his first big hit, Blue Like Jazz.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Why Jen Galicinski is a great reviewer.
    Jennifer is really cool. She is an ESL teacher in Busan, SOuth Korea right now, but is actually from Toronto. I got to know her about 3 weeks ago, and I think she's fantastic. She has a great smile and cute eyes. She really Don Miller alot, which makes me a bit jealous, but that's cool. I'm not sweatin' it. I enjoyed her review. To be honest, I skimmed it a bit. But I trust her judgment. Although she doesn't know how to spell "gnawing." She spelled it "knawing," which had me laughing a bit. Anyway, I may see her in january. We'll probably go snowboarding if the weather permits. She has a cute, funny Canadian accent, you knowm like "Sooory," and "eh?" and "tuh-more-ow." Anyway, I think she's alright. Check her out sometime. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Complete Old Testament Commentary Available
    Keil & Delitzsch is a great help that I use quite often. Sometimes a little dry, and not the best book to read while you are sleepy, nevertheless K&D will give you a wealth of information as to what the original Hebrew says.I've found these volumes particularily usefulstudying the prophets. When there was a point of comparison in the Hebrewpoetry that I didn't understand, K&D came through for me with a clearexplanation.An even better OT Commentary is the one by Leupold. I findhis "Genesis" clearer and better written than Keil &Delitzsch. Unfortunately, Leupold did not write a commentary on the ENTIREOT, so K&D remains your best source for sound commentary on the wholeOld Testament.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great commentary, dubious editing
    Originally published in the late 19th century, the Keil and Delitzsch commentaries on the Old Testament are virtual monuments of rigorous scholarship.The authors have given us a work that is full of historical,linguistic, and archaeological information, a great majority of which isstill quite current.They perform very admirably, as well, in refuting therationalistic Biblical criticism of their day and in upholding the veracityof the Scriptures. A word of warning, however, is in order.HendricksonPublishers (who is responsible for this edition) has done aless-than-thorough job of editing the text.I have had my set for lessthan a year and have done in-depth study in only two of the volumes.However, both of these have been riddled with typographical errors.Thereare several punctuation mistakes, but the real problem lies in runningwords together (for instance, the phrase "it has been" appears as"ith as been," and so forth).These can be mildly annoying but,in the end, the sheer value and richness of the commentary overshadowsthese problems and should not deter the interested reader from takingadvantage of the tremendous learning of Messrs. Keil and Delitzsch.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Plowing in Fertile Soil
    It's like plowing in fertile soil to peruse the volumes of Keil & Delitzsch.The authors examine the cultural aspects that background each OldTestament book, and squeeze the Hebrew and cognate languages toprovide the best possible interpretation.Nor are the authors myopic; forthey note within the text and within rich footnotes the conclusions ofothers --even those with whom they disagree.One does not always have toagree with an author's harvested conclusion in order to find benefit instudy. Sometimes just being in the sun and walking behind the plow is a"harvest" in itself. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    In a distant, timeless place, a mysterious prophet walks the sands. At the moment of his departure, he wishes to offer the people gifts but possesses nothing. The people gather round, each asks a question of the heart, and the man's wisdom is his gift. It is Gibran's gift to us, as well, for Gibran's prophet is rivaled in his wisdom only by the founders of the world's great religions. On the most basic topics--marriage, children, friendship, work, pleasure--his words have a power and lucidity that in another era would surely have provoked the description "divinely inspired." Free of dogma, free of power structures and metaphysics, consider these poetic, moving aphorisms a 20th-century supplement to all sacred traditions--as millions of other readers already have.Read more

    Inspirational and true teachings about various aspects of life are what you will find when you read this beautiful book. The book is short, 96 pages, and includes artwork by the author. The short chapters begin with various people (a ploughman, a judge, a woman, a rich man, an old priest, a mason, a hermit, etc.)asking the mystic to speak about different subjects of life, such as:On Beauty, On Good and Evil, On Marriage, On Joy and sorrow, on friendship, and many more)

    I recommend this audio Bible set. Each book of the Bible has its own introduction (just like the book form of the NIV Bible) and it is very enjoyable to listen to.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best audio Bible yet
    I have had other dramatized Bibles, but this one is the best yet. I like the introductions to each of the books. It also came with a very durable case that should last being tossed around in my car. I would highly recommend this version of the NIV Dramatized Audio Bible!

    Great way to zoom through the entire bible in a matter of few weeks to months, depending on your commute time.I load about 5 CD's each week with my 20-30 minute commute each way.It is just awesome to be able to saturate with God's Words without any "down time" in Christian radio stations.Highly recommend this...good quality sounds and effects that are not distracting the original Words... ...

    I first discovered Max McLean reading the Bible online at another website.I found reading the Bible myself with the audio reinforcement of Max McLean reading to be an excellent way to read God's Word.After reading at my computer I found the best value for this product at Amazon.I bought one for myself.I took it into my Wednesday night Bible study and the group really liked it.When I was away on vacation they pleaded with me to bring the Audio Bible back.That was enough encouragement for me to buy a copy for the class.I also sent one to my Aunt who is awaiting delivery.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Humor is truly God-given
    And there's plenty of it to be found in Higg's work. This book is truly unique in several ways, one being that it's practically an anthology as well as a guidebook. Also, Higgs blessedly does NOT paint unrealistically good-girl pictures of what we should be like; her brutally honest recounting of her past is part of this. I found her transformation of old stories into new absolutely brilliant and insightful and her humor and bluntness often hilarious. Inspite of her occasional gushing of Christ (can you blame her?) and her extremely affectionate terms of endearment for the reader, Higgs never came across to me as condescending or fake. In fact, she's more real than certain people I've actually met. Some female Christian authors give the impression of being either the dance-through-daisies type or the whip-in-hand type that you can't at all relate to, but Higgs is wonderfully flesh and blood as well as Godly, which not everyone can accomplish! One feminist claimed that Higgs believes in women being submissive to men, but let's give her a little more credit here! While she does make a comment about wives submitting to their husbands, she only does this once and never says that women should be submissive in general. If there's one thing Higgs is not, it's a doormat. I did take away one star because I felt like she occasionally (in both her Bad Girl books) connected personal beliefs with Christian ones a little too much(I do not agree that nudity is inherently sinful or that morning-after pills are nasty), but we all do that to a certain point and Higgs still for the most part manages to steer clear of preachiness. If you'd like a down-to-earth and entertaining Christian guide, I highly recommend both "Bad Girl" books as well as "Mad Mary" (read the latter with a bunch of tissues, though). Higgs is truly in a class by herself :) God Bless you, Liz!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The most relevant book I've ever read
    I bought this book more than a year before I read it. It sat on my shelf gathering dust until I finally found the courage to actually read it. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I read it for two days straight, grabbing it every chance I could.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Witty, fun, real and relevant
    We have a small group of women meeting once a week and reading this book. I love the way Liz starts each chapter by retelling the story of the woman the way it may look if it was happening today and gives us a new insight into that life. She then goes step by step through the Bible verses and does a study on them - showing insights and ways that it relates to us today. The questions at the end of the chapter are good as well and the whole diverse group of us is learning... There are different types of women in the Bible and each of us relates to at least one of them! I like the catagories: Bad to the bone, Bad for a season and Bad for a moment. Witty, fun, real and relevant to me today. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Whatever you bind on Earth...
    When Jesus said to Peter "Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven..." (Matthew 16:29) he wasn't talking about a book being bound -- necessarily -- but he could have been -- because the result of that charge is bound in this book. Or, put it more accurately what Peter, the Apostles, and those that that succeeded them...what they decided under the infallible guidance of the Holy Spirit (John 16:13...he will lead you into ALL truth) documented in this book. This is what Jesus was talking about. And to think that for a few bucks, you can have your own indexed, hardbound, edition. That is perhaps not a miracle, but it's pretty incredible. If left stranded ona deserted island, this is the book you want...along with a Bible.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The authoritative source of what Catholics believe
    While I grew up Protestant (Baptist) I didn't know that any Christian group had such a thing as a Catechism book, a book of their confession, or even by-laws. I thought all that was needed was the Bible (sola Scriptura). As a result all I learned about who the Catholics are and what they believe was from pastors with an anti-Catholic ax to grind, mis-informed or non-practicing Catholic classmates, and biased anti-Romish Protestant literature.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking - it will enhance your Bible reading
    This is the best book I have encountered on the subject of biblical interpretation for the casual or semi-casual reader. It tackles a lot of difficult and potentially controversial subjects in a way that is comprehensible to almost any English speaker with a desire to learn.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Worthy Study
    This is a no-nonsense, conservative approach to interpreting the Bible, focusing on what the Bible meant to the ancient audience as a springboard to what it means now.We have a tendency, at least I do, to do hermeneutics (what the Bible means to us) prior to exegesis (what the Bible meant originally). This book makes it clear that we are being copied on ancient literature, and that we have to be sure of what we are reading.Also, some of it is not even meant for direct application, like the book of Acts; even though many first time events took place then, it is not meant to be normative for the church of all time.In a word, the book appeals to a much less self-absorbed approach to studying the Bible.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally Helpful
    An older revision of this was one of my Bible College textbooks in the early 1980's.It's way better now...and it was very good then.For example, Fee gives clear minded, thoughtful approaches to every type of literature (genre) in the bible.

    As Christian Ed Coordinator at our church, I have purchased these Bibles for our students going into 3rd grade for the past 8 years.They are kid friendly, and have wonderful little sidebar items that are helpful to both the students and the teachers in the elementary Sunday School classes.Amazon's price, even with shipping, beat my local suppliers hands down.Thanks, Amazon, for helping out.I'll definitely be a repeat customer when I have to order more Bibles!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Essential
    This Bible has incorrectly been called everything from 'the PC Bible' to 'the ungodly "bible"'. This Bible, though, is absolutely essential to someone who may not have access to commentaries who needs an historically reliable resource. If it seems 'ungodly' it is because its annotations may differ from what your Sunday school teacher taught you. But remember, this Bible will not teach you the doctrine of any one church; it is ecumenical and (gasp!) allows the reader to make decisions for themselves. The annotations are not infallible any more than the NRSV text is. But they are excellent (as is the NRSV translation) and worth looking at for reliable information.
    3-0 out of 5 stars New Oxford notes are disappointing
    I specifically purchased this edition because I have the earlier edition and love the notes (which are extensive).I am disappointed that information from the earlier edition's notes was omitted from these re-written notes, and I am disappointed with this edition's efforts to be more politically correct and skeptical in tone.I find that, despite some excellent notes and commentary in this edition, I am having to read with my two editions side-by-side in order to get what I want from the text.I had hoped that this edition would be adequate for classes in Biblical literature, but it is not; at least, not without considerable supplementation.However, I must admit that I have not found another current edition any better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very readable
    I tried reading a different translation of the apocrypha years ago and gave up after a few chapters.This one is very easy to read and understand.While I have not consulted the notes on it much, they are helpful when needed. ... Read more

    I bought this for my daughter and use it even more than she does. This is a wonderful Catholic interpretation of the Bible and does a great job of explaining Catholic beliefs and traditions in relation to Scripture. It has all 73 books, so it's a complete Catholic Bible.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Okay for what it is, but disappointing nevertheless
    Strobel does a good job of presenting the case for Christ. By interviewing various scholars ("expert witnesses"), he builds that case in the same way he would build a legal case to take to court. He anticipates each objection, each piece of countering evidence, that the opposing side might introduce, and he deals with these one by one. So far, so good.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Hate to lodge dissent
    I hate to be a naysayer but as a former agnostic myself I had heard so much good about this book I was anxious to get my hands on a copy. Perhaps it was the buildup that raised my expectations too high. It is not bad for a book of its kind but nothing different from those who have gone before him down this road of apologetics.Many have disagreed with me on this but I do not think it would work well on the serious agnostic or atheist. Many, I think, would consider it an insult to their intelligence. So from the perspective of this Christian reviewer, you might want to look elsewhere for a book to share with friends. This one is helpful as a faith-booster but not a very good faith-inducer in my opinion; fair but no silver bullet of apologetics.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good for new Christians and athiests
    If you believe in God but have doubts that Jesus existed, this is a good book for you.If you don't believe in God this is a good book for you....if you go into it with an open mind.If you are dead set that God doesn't exist and don't want to find out other wise then don't read this book.I like this book because it gives many different scholar's views on various subjects.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Error In Quran?
    S18 v86 when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it set in a spring of murky water: Near it he found a People: We said: "O Zul-qarnain! (thou hast authority,) either to punish them, or to treat them with kindness."
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, and no mistakes
    This is a well-attempted translation of the Holy Qur'an.Though some people have issues with 18:86, this is due to their ignorance.the setting of the sun can be used to denote a physical location, ie when i was travelling, the sun set when i reached Anaheim.Also, the arabic word used is 'Wajada' which means "appeared", so it appeared to Zul-Qarnain that it set in a murky marsh.It 'appears' that the sun sets under the hills, but me saying that doesn't take away from my scientific integrity.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Mistake in the Koran - Read it Here!!!!!!
    One of the questions which puzzled the ancient Arabs was, "Where did the sun go when night time came?" The Qur'an gave them Allah's answer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great advice for business and for everyday life
    My husband wants to start his own business.He has the skill to perform the service, but he has a mental block with getting started.This book is the ignition he needs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Chuck Norris called this book PHENOMENAL...He's Right
    One of the best books i've ever read.The author presents hundreds of Solomon's Proverbs covering 15 topics.The chapters on diligence, conflict and adversity, and partnering have been life-changing for me.And his chapter on deferred hope gives the most enlightening revelation on why relationships fall apart that I have ever heard.Thankfully he also shows Solomon's answers for restoring broken relationships.Reading the chapters on the booby traps to success and the number one cause of financial loss helped me to understand why some of my past efforts had failed so miserably.I only wish I had found this book 20 years ago.I too wish that Scott would have covered all 46 categories of Proverbs, but doing so would have probably resulted in a thousand page book.I'm a Christian, so I really loved his last chapter, but unlike the reviewer before me, Scott said right at the beginning of the book that the laws of life revealedin Proverbs can be used by Christian and non-Christian alike to achieve many of Solomon's promised outcomes.I 'll be giving out lots of copies of this book this Christmas.I can't think of a better gift to give to those I care about most.

    1-0 out of 5 stars NOT worth the money
    "The Richest Man Who Ever Lived" by Steven K. Scott, I thought, would be a good buy.It was the farthest thing from a good buy.The premise of this book is imparting the wisdom of King Solomon to the masses by way of the Bible's book of Proverbs.That is at least how the book is marketed.Here are my problems with this book.First, there were plenty of good things in the book up to a point (page 244) when he states that he had divided up the book of Proverbs into 46 categories.And then proceeds to tell us that he has only presented 15 of these categories.In other words, he published an incomplete book.And it does little good to tell people, "think of the incredible insights that await you."Hey, Stevie Unwonder, I bought the book to get YOUR insights, not go through the thing myself.I probably should have done that to begin with, because I would have saved myself a lot of money.Second, he doesn't even use the Jewish bible, the Tanakh, for his source, but rather relies on the most perverted form of the Bible, the King James Version, not to mention other xian-dogma-infested version...Revised Standard, New American Standard, New International Version.NO!You MUST go to the original Hebrew for a correct understanding.And if you don't know Hebrew, the Orthodox Union publishes the entire Tanakh in Hebrew and English translation UNTOUCHED.These other so-called translations have had things altered that aren't in the original, so the sourcing isn't even correct.Third, he gets to the point where he says that the only way to honor G-d is by becoming a xian.In other words, he basically says that none of the things he has presented in his book will work unless you are a xian first.And then he gets to sounding like a crazed southern-baptist preacher during a summer-time tent revival.Talking about how Jesus said that, and how Jesus said this.I didn't buy the book to hear what Jesus said.I could care less what he supposedly said.I bought the book to read about Solomon.
