I have to agree with the author that some of the theories made by people don’t really seem to be very good interpretations of the text. Simply because most of those less popular theories only seem to look at certain parts of the scripture and miss the whole idea of the greater picture. I have to disagree with his straight analysis of the text in that the interpretations seemed to take most of the scripture for face value and sought no other insight in to the text.

It is very successfully portrays the possible themes of sexuality and deeper
