Dr. R. J. Gannaway
Numbers and their associated symbolism interconnect the Bible in such a way as to prove that God is the sole author, while giving insight into God's minds. They provide continuity from book to book and from Old to New Testaments, and considering that one was written in Hebrew and one in Greek, it is quite amazing that numbers carry consistent meanings throughout both. In Numbers of the Bible, How to Interpret the Mind of God, Dr. Gannaway presents the symbolism attached to the numbers of the Bible and demonstrates how that symbolism evolves from number to number. Dr. Gannaway describes the imagery and provides examples in scripture, revealing techniques for reducing numbers to their simplest forms and for converting the original Hebrew and Greek letters of the Bible into numbers. Dr. Gannaway proves that the symbolism associated with the explicit form of numbers and their equivalent numerical value in words is the same. He also explains why certain numbers appear where they do and describes the added dimension of meaning they bring to the scripture. With an appendix which contains a section on the names of God and their numerical values, examples of symbolism in the Apocrypha, alternative numerical analysis techniques, and a concordance of number usage in the Bible, Numbers of the Bible, How to Interpret the Mind of God is the perfect tool for understanding this often confusing phenomena.

Growing older brings many thoughts of "I wish I knew that before" This book provides information to help us age as well as possible. Surprisingly, our feelings do not age. Pleasure and contentment interface loneliness, loss, fears and sorrow. At a time when life is thought easier, new problems and situations that are challenging arise. Four stages of aging include the initiation to aging at about fifty years of age, changes in life following retirement, a gradual acceptance of being older, and the final years of eighty-five and older.
My interest in psychology was stimulated by observing the relationships that my six siblings had with our parents. After receiving a doctorate from Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, I have taught and practiced clinical in several universities, ending up at Stanford University School of Medicine. Retirement enlivened an interest in sharing aging experiences as I faced them (now 95 years old). There was little literature on the emotional challenges of aging; we know our emotional life does not age. Feelings become more complex, better understood, and increasingly positive for the person.
