What's inside The Golden Ark

Isaacs wrote this graphic book with one goal in mind: to explain the actual purpose of the ark.

Why devote an entire pictorial volume to this subject? Because this relatively simple, gold covered box has been the subject of awe, fear, study, research, philosophies, beliefs, wars, books, films, and endless, seemingly unanswerable questions. The ark of the testimony, also called the ark of the covenant, has been a promulgator of ageless laws, rendering it, for millennia, one of history's most significant artifacts.

Why read Talking With God

Talking With God: The Radioactive Ark of the Testimony dramatically introduces a whole new world of thinking about practices surrounding the Ark of the Testimony (aka Ark of the Covenant) and relates that thinking to the sciences of physics and chemistry. It propounds a new theory regarding what the Israelites experienced at Mount Sinai and beyond. It explains how they communicated through the Ark, the terrible dangers involved in doing so, and the protections from that danger that it was necessary for them to undertake.

In Talking With God, Roger D. Isaacs shares the results of a 40-year study into the meanings of more than 20 ancient Hebrew words. In our modern Bibles, these words don't seem to mean what they say, so Isaacs researched similar words among 18 ancient languages that point to the original meanings. Taken together, they paint a startling picture of what the ancient Israelites experienced. About the Ark as a communications device. About the tabernacle that housed the Ark and all its instruments.

The Ophel Inscription Debate

March 18th, 2014

Last year’s discovery in Jerusalem of an inscription on a broken piece of a ceramic jar has been greeted with much excitement and the usual arguments within the archaeological community as to its significance. In an effort to clarify the various positions presently taken, I’ve asked Adam Hemmings, who is doing postgraduate work in archaeology at the University of London, to give his explanation of the background of this enigmatic find. Roger Isaacs


by Adam Hemmings

The practice of archaeology, and biblical archaeology especially, is a controversial one. The layers of history that lie beneath our feet are laden with interpretation, claims and counterclaims. When archaeologists unearth this history, it is no wonder that such a mix of emotions greet their discoveries: wonder, awe, curiosity and, judging by the number of times I’ve been asked about the Curse of the Pharaohs, fear. Mysteries fascinate humans sometimes more than the hard work it takes to unravel them—but for this work we need an interdisciplinary toolkit that covers many subjects, from ancient literature and philosophy to radiocarbon dating and palynology.

Praise for The Golden Ark

Praise for The Golden Ark

Rabbi Robert Marx

"You continue to confound the "biblical establishment" even as you offer creative insights into our ancient religious literature. You offer a naturalistic explanation to what others insist upon calling supernatural. Or perhaps, more accurately, your work might be described as supra-natural. At any rate, it represented innovative, if inevitably, controversial thinking. And we need that."

Robert J. Marx, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Hakifa, Glencoe, IL, Founder and a past president of the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs

Francesco Licheri

"Now the 'substance' of Talking With God will be very easily understood by EVERYONE! The Golden Ark, A Pictorial History represents an excellent inventive to read Talking With God in order to fully realize in details its richness of highly scientific arguments."

"Isaacs' use of etymology to redefine many words in the Hebrew Bible has resulted in a fascinating hypothesis."
