What is priest Nation, The Seed, and the H5G? is a book about Christianity, its teachings, its tradition, etc. that is conveyed in a simplified way by the author. This is a non-fictional book written by Herbert Scholes.

This book is relatively short that consists of 137 pages divided into 6 chapters. In this book, the author shares details about the gospels in a very simple and eloquent manner that can be understood by everyone. With this book, the author is trying to get all the Christians closer to Jesus Christ. He explains the messages preached by Jesus Christ in an elementary way so that people can understand the significance of life, the way of living, death, etc. The author has also focused on meditation and churches, which play an important role in a person’s life. Here, he has also shared his ideas in detail about the “priest nation” and “the seed.”

This book is a concise version of the teachings of Jesus Christ. I really appreciate the author’s desire to teach Christians about the gospels in a simple way to improve their lives and enhance their knowledge. One of my favorite parts of the book is where the author has inserted a hand-drawn diagram and has explained “the way, the truth, and the life.” That diagram in itself says it all and I was quite impressed with it. I also liked the acronym of L.O.V.E, which delivers a very strong message to lead a great and peaceful life. I am not from a Christian background, but I could understand the author’s ideas and what he is trying to convey very easily.

There is nothing major that I disliked about this book. The concern that I have is related to the font, formatting, and editing of the book. The book would have been more presentable if, every new chapter was started on a fresh page, and font and font size were the same or changed only when required. I felt that the initial part of the book was a bit slow and the next half of the book had nice and interesting elements in it. Other than these issues, this is a wonderful book.

Unfortunately, this book did not seem professionally edited, as I found many errors. With that being said, I rate What is priest Nation, The Seed, and the H5G? 3 out of 4 stars. I did not give it a perfect score because of the errors and editing. I could not give it any lesser than 3 because I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and got some really great and positive insights.

I highly recommend this book to all Christians and also the people who want to know more about Christianity. This book is not suitable for people who do not believe in these teachings and those who do not like reading religion-based books.

It seems like this book has good intentions and is fine pretty well. It is too bad that the font and formatting is not well done.

It's lovely to see the author preach Christianity in a simple and eloquent manner because not all religious books are like that. I hope the author will work on the formatting and editing to make this read better. Thank you for your wonderfully detailed review!
