In 1970/71 she studied art and culture at the IRBAC Mexico (Instituto Regional Bellas Artes in Cuernavaca). She immersed herself in Greek, Latin and in Egyptology. Since 1981 she has been intensively engaged in theology and comes to surprising conclusions that are written in this book.
This book contains a clear synopsis of the old Hebrew scripture, which the Bible refers to twice. The sypnosis includes notes with cultural and historical research. The texts have been compared with parallel texts in the Bible and the Quran.     

 “Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.” ( 2 Samuel 1:18)
“And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher?”
(Joshua 10:13)

Inspired by this text of Joshua, John Martin (U.K.) painted in 1851 this impressive oil painting.
