A different world

To me fantasy books are like my salvation from a corrupted and cruel living world. It tells us of a pieceful world with many characters who doesn't act like your everyday grouchy math teacher. Does the world depicted in fantasy books any different from our own?

I love reading my fantasy fiction, the worlds inhabited by kender and dwarves, dark elves and ogres. Although these creatures inhabit the fantasty world, the situations and tales still mirror our reality, it's often that they have a different way of looking at situations and dealing with them. A wizard would use magic to solve a problem, something I sometimes wish we could do in our reality.

My world is different and I welcome you to my world. I hope you try it. I am a Christian and a translator of the Word of God from Greek to English. I have already published GENESIS, EXODUS, LEVITICUS (Greek-English), THE WILL New Testament (Greek to English), ELEMENTS of SALVATION, The Right Way, GOD, ORIGIN, TRANSFER into PERFECTION, GREEK-ENGLISH (Grammar & Vocabulary), WORDS in THE WILL New Testament, and others shown at http://www.lulu.com/arseniajoaquin I translated the Greek words PLAINLY - Greek words to their corresponding English equivalents. These are translations and not versions wherein it is generally accepted that versions are 80% not translations. The aforementioned translations are simple and easy to understand and these are translations which means that they are more accurate than the versions. I hope that you include these books in searching for the truth. May God bless you.

I love Fantasy books. I think for the most part they do take us away from the troubles of every day. They might have their own problems in their world but they aren't ones we have to deal with normally. Most don't have dragons for example roaming about. One of my favorite series is the series of Xanth by Piers Anthony. Reading that really allows me to let this world disolve and I can just get into that one. Too bad we can't actually visit those worlds though.
