Genesis Unzipped is a non-fiction religion and philosophy work written by Lucio Licciardello. The author presents the results of his research into the links between science, speculation and history, and the Book of Genesis. He shows parallels and correlations between the words of the bible and ancient history, focusing extensively on the Sumerians and their writing, culture and mythology. Licciardello also offers an explanation for stories of early visitors to this planet with his cosmic theories on how the planets in this solar system were formed, and the existence of Planet X and the godlike beings who inhabited this world. He also reconciles astrology and looking to the stars for guidance as fitting within the study and scope of his biblical research.
Lucio Licciardello's non-fiction Christian work, Genesis Unzipped, is a fascinating historical and speculative treatise that is sure to garner interest, appreciation and sometimes outrage, depending on the reader's tastes and beliefs. I enjoyed following the author's trek through ancient history and loved the photographs and exhibits he includes within his text. I wasn't sure what to expect when I began the book and had thought that it would be yet another creationist work, but soon found it was something else entirely. Genesis Unzipped is one man's original and sometimes earnest attempt to make sense of the more elusive passages of the bible. Even the opening passages about the first seven days of creation are examined through the lens of this perceptive, intuitive and intensely curious author. There are also some sly glimpses of humor, as evidenced in his explanation for the disappearance of Adam's first wife, Lilith. I enjoyed Genesis Unzipped and will be looking at some of the works listed in his bibliography. This provocative and well-researched book is highly recommended.
