“There is a catch to intimacy in marriage”, which Hidden Puzzle in Marriage: The Twist Against Choice by Samuel Adjeipong reveals. This is a factual treatise on what God promised man in the Garden of Eden. Samuel explains what certain passages in the Bible actually mean and backs this up with examples.
In the beginning, God made man and all the animals from the dust of the Earth. He then had Adam name all the animals; afterwards he put Adam in a deep sleep and removed a rib to make Eve. This makes Woman unique out of all creation, in that she is made of Man, not dust. In presenting Eve to Adam, God made man several promises, which he still keeps to this day. These promises are expounded on in this book. As I am contemplating getting married in the near future, I was anxious to read this book to see if I was making a mistake.
The book is a real eye opener into what God meant for all of us. I especially loved the part where Samuel declares, “a woman is only a wife if she marries the right person. Otherwise, she is just a woman wearing a ring.” This really brings home why there is such a high divorce rate in the world. One of God’s promises is for a couple to prosper in marriage. Therefore, this quote also goes to show why there is so much poverty in the world.
I found the book most enlightening, not only did the author explain what certain passages in the Bible really meant he also provided copious examples. He quoted many stories from the Bible and then referenced them to the points he had explained earlier in the book. This was by far, not only the easiest part of the book to read, but also the best portrayal of what the author was trying to convey.
There are several contradictions in the book. The worst one in my eyes is where the author states that everyone believes that God created us, even if that person believes that God doesn’t exist. There are also many grammar mistakes. These are mostly where Samuel uses the wrong tense but there are others too. The biggest problem I found in reading this book was all the repetitions. The book could have been about two thirds of its actual size without them.
Although I found the information to be very useful for myself, considering the situation I am in. I am forced, because of all the grammar mistakes and repetitions, to give this book a rating of 3 out of 4 stars. I think that anybody who is single would do well to read this book, whether they are currently contemplating trying to find a partner or not. I would also advise that any councilors that advice married people and anyone in the religious profession should read this book and share its contents with the community at large.
