Review of Artifice: Humanities Deception from Time Immemorial by A. I. Jacob

From the publisher: 

Lets be honest with one another, we live in a world of good and evil. Whether you’re an atheist, agnostic, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu or Jew – there are good and evil people in all sects of humanity.

Why is it we can invent vaccines that can cure various diseases, but others use those same viruses to create biological weapons to kill and destroy other human kind?

Why is it we can create things like dynamite and explosive charges to move mountains to build wonderful highways so we can travel great distances, yet use those same explosive devices to build missiles and various weapons of war to kill and destroy one another?

Why can mankind build beautiful cities, buildings, parks, musical compositions, art, poetry and wondrous inventions to help us enjoy life and aid us in our day to day chores – yet the majority of the human race lives in squalor and our cities are filled with crime, drugs and every conceivable evil under the sun?

Why has mankind throughout history, fought wars between one another? Why are there so many ebbs and flows of nation rising against nation, intertwined with various belief systems and religions – why is there so much violence in the world?

Humanism and globalism seem to have taken over the thoughts and goals of the nations, yet the majority have no clue as to their ramifications and that we as a people are being propelled towards a self-fulfilling precipice of disaster that if not stopped will threaten the extinction of the human race.

A.I. Jacob takes you on a journey from beginning to end, where things are not what they seem, where darkness dwells in the hearts and minds of men, where inner circles and promises of wealth and power entice the rulers of men, where deception is its constitution and the players are looked upon as the loving caregivers of humanity, taking care of all their needs from cradle to grave; while an ever growing small majority of others see through the farce, resist and are put down with force.

This is the real world we live in; this is “Artifice – Humanities Deception from Time Immemorial”

My Review:

Artifice [ahr-tuh-fis]: noun

1. A clever trick or stratagem;
2. Trickery; guile; craftiness.

Are there unseen forces behind the political, social, and religious changes that have played out throughout history? Who are we, and why are we here? Is there a singular, malevolent agenda behind society’s rapid descent into immorality?
Artifice is an intelligent and thought-provoking book, and whether you agree with the author’s views or not, it is inevitable that you will set this book down more knowledgeable than when you picked it up.

I especially appreciated the author’s gentle and nonjudgmental approach in appealing to Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Atheists to consider the possibility of what the book has to offer with an open mind. Based on a biblical and Hebraic perspective, this book covers a vast array of topics from religion, history, culture, politics, economics, prophecy and more, explaining how “the world around us is not what it seems, that there are players and principalities behind the scenes influencing and swaying the thoughts and directions of humanity”.

Artifice is an intense book, packed with so much information I’m going to have to keep this one handy for references and research. Awesome! Makes me think, a little bit, of the teachings/beliefs of Perry Stone, or maybe even John Hagee, but this book is such a breath of fresh air from what I typically read! An exciting, informative, and fantastic book!

Recommended for: anyone with an open mind and a curiosity for what is going on in the world, and why

Rating: 5 stars

    Any idea why the subtitle is “Humanities Deception…” and not “Humanity’s Deception…”? Is it a play on words or just a typo?
