For 3000 years a code in the Bible has remained hidden. Now it has been unlocked by computer - and it may reveal our future. The code, broken by an Israeli mathematician, foretells events that happened thousands of years after the Bible was written. It foresaw both Kennedy assassinations, the Oklahoma bombing - everything from World War II to Watergate, from the Holocaust to the Moon landing. Published to a frenzy of media attention, THE BIBLE CODE became a Number One bestseller.

Michael Drosnin is a reporter, formerly at the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Citizen Hughes. He lives and works in New York.
When this book came out in hardback it caused the biggest shockwaves since Erich von Daniken asked if God was an astronaut. Michael Drosnin claims the Old Testament is riddled with a cipher that has made precise predictions about events of the last 3000 years, and that it tells of a third world war and atomic holocaust soon to come. He admits that his theory might seem far-fetched, but answers the sceptics by showing how the code was deciphered and what it says. The book is replete with diagrams and code-breaking information. According to the code, or Drosnin's interpretation of it, the Bible tells of the rise of Hitler, the moon landings of the 1960s and 1970s, the assassinations of JFK and brother Bobby, the Gulf War, collapse of the Soviet Union, assassination of Yitzhak Rabin and so on. Indeed, scarcely a newsworthy event of note from the last century appears to have escaped the scripture writers. Drosnin says he was sceptical at first on being told that an Israeli mathematician had discovered the code. However, being a journalist, he made a note of several predictions and was forced to believe when they duly came true. Like a latter-day Nostradamus armed with not a map of the heavens but a powerful computer, Drosnin set to the task of unravelling more of the code. He then invited US and Israeli scientists to verify its authenticity and, he claims, they declared it to be real. On this last point there has been much dispute. Whether the Bible really contains a coded chart of human destiny remains a hotly debated topic. But like von Daniken and his astronauts, the theory is likely to run for some time. (Kirkus UK)
