Book review: Revelation: The Way It Happened

by Lee Harmon


I happened to stumble on this review of my first book on Goodreads. I guess this is the power of electronic publishing … it reached all the way to Africa!

And speaking of Goodreads, a group of us will be discussing this book in a forum shortly. I’d love to have a few more participants! If you’d like to join, check it out at, and if you need a cheap paper or free electronic copy of the book to share in the discussion, contact me at


My wife leant me her Kindle to read “Revelation – the way it happened” as I have long had an interest in comparative religion.

I found this story to have an interesting premise and to be intellectually challenging, pressing me to think out of the box with the way the well-researched scholarly material was mixed with telling a story. It did take me some time to get used to the modern voices of the main characters. However, as I am used to legal texts and non-fiction reading material about the different religions & their texts, this may not bother another reader.

While an index might have helped, reading this book was an engaging experience and I recommend “Revelation – the way it happened” to any reader who wants a different perspective on one of the most complex books in the Christian Bible.
