The Book Bin in Onley is hosting the debut booksigning and discussion for local business owner Timothy P. Smith, president of the antiques and restoration firm Timothy Smith and Sons in Onancock, Va., on Saturday, April 8 at noon. Smith’s first book The Chamberlain Key: Unlocking the God Code to Reveal Divine Messages Hidden in the Bible (April 4, 2017, WaterBrook) is his personal, and at times shocking, story of faith, adventure and unexpected discoveries that has been 25-years in the making.
Smith, a Washington, D. C. native and the fourth generation of one of North America’s most noted conservation and preservation families, believes he has discovered a code encrypted in the ancient Hebrew text that unequivocally provides proof of the Bible’s divine authorship. In The Chamberlain Key, Smith takes the ancient Hebrew Bible, the scriptural foundation of both the Jewish and Christian faiths and most influential text in Western civilization, and asks: Is there more to the Bible than meets the eye? Does technology allow for new messages from God to be discerned today?
Readers will join Smith on a page-turning journey that takes them from Virginia to the remote Rockies of British Columbia to Southern Spain and the site of the Rocio Madonna. Part code-cracker and part historical sleuth, Smith tells his up-until-now private story that not only holds personal but potentially historical and religious implications.
“I want people to look at the Bible with a new found lens,” says Smith. “The Bible is a treasure that has been cherished and protected by people around the world for thousands of years and now this text is revealing new messages for our generation.”
