7 Gems is a first-of-its-kind book presenting the basic teachings of various religious texts in one place. The holy writings in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism are outlined in one book. 7 Gems does not attempt to describe any of these faiths, or beliefs of those who follow these texts. Instead, it merely presents what the texts themselves say in an easy-to-understand way.
Over the last 20 years, the language of each text was carefully reviewed. Each verse of every text was separately scanned for concepts using modern technology. For 7 Gems and Religious Digests, over 80,000 textual cross-references by topic (published separately) were created. This technology is currently the object of potential patent development and protection. A small portion of the Religious Digests’ references—a few thousand–are included in 7 Gems as endnotes.
The objective of 7 Gems is to present each of the seven texts for the billions of readers who may never have read or considered them. To provide the reader with a very credible and carefully documented understanding and cross-referencing of various religious texts. To imbue a greater understanding and respect for the followers of different religions.
