People on Earth have many perspectives on how it all began. Since they were children, some people have thought that someone high above everything created heaven and earth, as well as all the things in them. Some, on the other hand, believe that the Earth and the cosmos are the results of a process that can be explained by thorough observations and experiments. In William Hanna’s anticipatingly genius work, The Broken Promise of a Promised Land, you will be illuminated on how timely troubles trace back their origins to the ancient past.
The narration began the text by explaining how the world came to be. As the story progresses, it becomes clear that people with little knowledge manage to survive by placing their faith in unseen gods—starting with how people used to worship inanimate objects to protect and heal them in the past, then a great priest will ascend to become their tribe’s leader. As time passes, the priest’s beliefs will be challenged, and monarchy will emerge. The priest, on the other hand, will retain his influence since he will reign alongside the monarchy—this is obvious, even today.
There are many religions that exist today; this book attempted to show how these religions were established and managed by powerful people. Some people believe in religious teachings because it is easier that way, even if the foundation is a little bit shaky. These religions each have their own gods, which evolve over time—from being inanimate to resembling a human. And with the help of the priest, humans may be able to proclaim gods at some point. Then later, a story of a man who is also born a god, existed.
This book demonstrated how religion has been used to justify racism and injustice. This is a real eye-opener for everyone. Particularly, the subject of slavery, the concept of a hereafter, and how individuals accepted punishment for misdeeds committed in a life they couldn’t recall. Even the way that society viewed women in the past was influenced by discriminatory religious ideas. Hanna’s book attempts to educate readers about current events in the world. When people use religion as a justification for their bad behavior, it’s a problem. It’s unfortunate to realize that religion should be the one thing that keeps humanity and compassion alive, but religion has instead become a source of division due to those who seek power and influence.
For writing this book, William Hanna is both daring and brilliant. How he uses logic and reasoning to persuade you in this story is clever—how the past is linked to the present, and how modern-day difficulties can be traced back to the past. His knowledge thread was simply indisputably credible. He proves his thesis by using history, religion, and race. He is astute, zealous, and fair. William is adamant in his beliefs and will look for all evidence he can to support his claims. He then selects the most relevant and valuable data as the primary weapon with which to attack his target.
The premise is extremely original and one of a kind. You’ll want to read more of his works after finishing this. In this book, he shared a wealth of information. You’ll be mesmerized by the abundance of well-structured material. His writing and data collection skills are exceptional. This is something I strongly advise you to try! If you want to read something informative and thought-provoking, this is the book to read. You won’t get lost or overwhelmed by the subject matter because the story is told in a set order. You can see the world from a different perspective and with a more open mind with the help of this book.
