It was G-d’s promise to all living creatures that He would never again obliterate all land-life from the world, as stated in Genesis 9:11 – never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.

Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden of Eden because they disregarded it. Cain was punished for defying it. The people of Sodom and Gomorrah were decimated for violating it. The generation of Noah met with destruction for desecrating it. Before the Law was given on Mount Sinai, there was a simple moral code that all mankind was to live by, a code of conduct that long antedated the Ten Commandments. Yet for nearly two thousand years, Christians have forbade its teaching, fearing that if adopted it would make Christianity obsolete and relegate the Triune deity to the dustbin of theological history along with the ancient gods of Zeus, Isis, and Mithra. It is called the Noahide Code, and those who learn about it will never look at the Bible the same way again.

I'm a muslim who is interested in the Noahide Laws, and I bought several books of Noahide Laws including this one.
At the back of the book of "The Noahide Code - A Guide to the Perplexed Christian" is stated that "Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden of Eden because they disregarded it ... The people of Sodom and Gomorrah were decimated for violating it". I bought this book and expected that the book will discuss more on the Noahide Laws and its connection to Adam, Cain, and the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. I was wrong. The book discusses more on Christianity and Gnosticism and the history of the New Testament.

The author calls the Christianity as Gnosticsm. While many people will say that comparing Christianity to Gnosticism is like comparing apple to orange, the author states that apple and orange have many in common, compared to a very different thing like a cat, for example.

The author wrote that many Gnostic groups recognize two kinds of gods, that is the Higher God and the lesser god; or God of Heaven and god of the world. And god of the world is Satan.
The author argues that Christianity also recognizes this dualism since there are many verses in the New Testament that states that Satan is the god of the world or "the ruler of the world" (2 Cor 4:4, John 12:31, John 14:30, 1 John 5:19, etc).

One of the problem with the Seven Laws of Noah is that it's not biblical. Nowhere in the Bible states that there are seven laws that were given to Noah. The basis for the Seven Laws on Noah depends solely on the Talmud. Many people, especially Christians (and Moslems), believe that the Talmud is not inspired, or not 100% trustworthy because it is based on oral traditions.
The author argues that while the Talmud is trustworthy, the New Testament (or he calls it as the Christian Talmud) is also based on oral traditions. The first gospel was written decades after the death of Jesus, based on oral traditions that were not trustworthy.
Well, in my opinion, if the the author is true when he states that the New Testament is not reliable, that doesn't make the Talmud is 100% reliable.

In conclusion, in my opinion this book is interesting despite that the book talks more on Christianity and Gnosticism rather than the Noahide Laws. It tells me something I didn't know before like Gnosticsm and the history of the New Testament. However, I didn't give it five stars since in my opinion the title of the book and what was written on the back of the book is a bit misleading. The book does discuss about the people of Sodom, but not as much as I expected.

A good book for all faiths. I have used it as a study guide with the Bible. It's very informative and one can always learn something from others. I'm not overly religious and do not attend any church but I am very interested in religion and enjoy the study as the study itself is it's own reward.

If you believe in God and the HEBREW Bible but just can't stomach to believe in a man-god, pagan based religion (you know who I mean) then the next best thing to get into Heaven is to learn about the Noachide Codes. These guidelines given to Noah (and before that to Adam) by the Creator of the Universe pre-date Judaism by over 2000 years and will be one day observed by all of (non-Jewish) mankind as prophesied in Zecharia 8:23 "This is what the LORD Almighty says: "In those days ten people from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, 'Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.'"
Why wait till then? Start today by buying this book! You'll never be the same believer in our Heavenly Father (or Mother) again!

Alan's book made a huge and profound difference in my life. I had been a Torah observant Gentile for a few years before I had come upon Alan's book, but his explanation of Torah justice made me reconsider my long held beliefs on crime and punishment. His well researched arguments on Torah based justice has turned me from a law and order, lock them up and let them rot in jail person to one that will look for the good in a person and try to change them into a productive member of society.

If you do not wish to have your beliefs challenged, then keep away from this book.

The Noahide Code by Alan W. Cecil is not a book for the faint hearted. If you don't like facing the facts then go elsewhere. But if you are genuinely interested in learning the origins of Christianity, then you will learn that Judaism always had a place for 'righteous gentiles' in their midst. It is called the Noahide Code and is the true 'walk' and the way for non Jews to have a relationship with God. But better how to have a peaceful world.
