Ex-teacher’s take on the Bible
A major illness inspired ex-teacher Wendy Robinson to write a summary of the Bible.
Now Ms Robinson’s book God’s Love Letter to Humanity is to go on sale in the new year.
Ms Robinson said the idea for the book came after she was hit with severe health problems 15 years ago caused by mould in her classroom at CedarBridge Academy
She said: “That’s how my journey started — I was a mess, but through it all, God carried me.
“When I was sick, I was up nights — I couldn’t sleep, so I read the Bible for comfort and I wrote.
“As I shared it with friends and my family, I was told this was something people needed.
“It’s just to introduce people to going back to reading the Bible.
“In these times there is so much hatred, but if we taught our children, if we went back to those biblical precepts of the commandments and ‘love thy neighbour’, we would not have half the problems that we have.”
The book is a summary of the Bible, illustrated with Bermuda scenes and with a guide to good living as the final chapter.
Ms Robinson said she persevered with the book, despite major surgery and continued health problems.
She added: “Sometimes I would be up all night writing, get an hour’s sleep, and then wake up as if I had rested all night.”
Ms Robinson said she still had “good days and bad days” — but that her years of illness had strengthened her faith.
She added: “It’s not about me. It’s about winning souls, getting people to read and understand the Bible, and changing lives.”
The book, at $25 a copy, will be available at island stores.
