Bible, God And Free Will takes an in-depth look at the Genesis, Scriptures, and the concept of Free Will. Why was this an important book for you to write?
I have wanted to write this book for many years. I read a lot of books about the Bible and the different interpretations that were given to the Scriptures. I have noticed some inaccuracies about Genesis in the Bible and have tried to give my own interpretation even though it may not be the most acceptable. I was very impressed to read the books of the hermits in Christian Egypt (written more than 1,000 years ago); what I liked most was their tenacity in seeking God. I have been making notes for years and a year ago I decided to structure all my notes and compose them in a book. I believe that everyone finds God where they feel. For our inner peace we need God; how we visualize or “materialize” it is not important. I considered it important to discuss the Bible, God, and Free Will in order to emphasize my view that God does not forbid us or oppose anything.
What challenges did you encounter when writing this book and how did you overcome them?
The biggest challenge I had in writing this book was how to write it so that no one would be offended by my interpretations. I tried to overcome my fears by treating the various topics with sincerity.
What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?
I think that those who read my book should have a very sincere introspection. They need to look deep inside and discover. They need to know who they really are and what their priorities are in life.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
I am a visual artist – abstract painting and for a long time I want to write a book about the “beauty” of abstract painting. I think in 2 years the book can be ready.

Bible, God And Free Will examines each term of the title, analyzing, interpreting, and determining its intricate components. Author Vasile Ghiuta draws on Genesis, the Holy Scriptures, and personal religious reflections to analyze the words and messages in the Holy Bible.
The book is divided into four parts, with the first three used to enlighten on the Bible, God, and Free Will. The fourth part – conclusions – presents the summation and overview of the key components of the ideas and beliefs discussed in the first three parts.
This first part of the book examines the Old and New Testaments, shedding light on their origins, evolution, and content. Questions such as ‘Can atheists and believers alike comprehend the complexity of messages in the Bible or is it altogether out of human understanding’ constitute the basis for this section. Furthermore, the author attempts to decipher the important book of creation, Genesis; on what day He created the universe, the human, the soul, the heavens, and angels, or was the day really bound by temporality? Finally, part one finishes with the concept of time and morality.
The second part continues the elaboration on God as a creator, and energy, with a comprehensive and thorough interpretation of God in both the old and new testaments. It explores the relationship of God to humans, the three hypostases of the Holy Trinity, and the value of love of humans expressed towards others and in deeds as the supreme expression of God.
A key component of part three deals with Man’s free will, endowed by God with the authority to decide and put God within him by relating both human and divine will. This part concludes with a new perspective on sacrifice in light of Jesus’ sacrifice, which brought upon death as a stage for mankind’s eternity.
This thought-provoking book sets forth logical, comprehensive, and coherent explanations of a vast array of enigmatic topics through philosophical interpretations of different concepts from the Bible. For example, one of the author’s claims is that social behavior toward God’s creatures, even in the absence of trust in God, is fully capable of bringing one salvation. While some points in the book seem to have been repeated in chapter after chapter, the repetitions emphasize the might of God and his message of life – love.
Bible, God And Free Will is written in a manner that Christians, atheists, or agnostics can find meaning in this illuminating book. The book focuses on human love and deeds rather than being a pious man with no principles.

The Philosophy of Vice is an enlightening book that explores the realities of life, people and their personalities and how social norms get practiced. The author writes in depth about a variety of topics, covering science, religion, humanity and other disciplines. Reading Vasile Ghiuta’s work is a delight as the author gets you to focus on different topics as you learn about the diversities in life. I like the approach the author took when writing the book. After introducing a topic, the author gives a simple definition and then goes on to discuss the topic in detail.
The first chapter contains the definitions of a variety of words, including ‘philosophy’ and ‘vice’. Defining these terms was important for the reader as the two formed the basis of the discussions in the book. Once the reader understands the terms, the author goes further and subdivides the two topics, talking about different classifications and comparing them to related subjects. This style of writing gets the ready to fully comprehend the message that the author is passing. Every topic covered in the book is crucial but there are a few topics that stood out for me.
Some of my favorite topics were about morals and vices, consciousness, identity and vice, and religion and vices. The topic on religion and vices is eye opening. Religion is personal to many people and so discussions revolving around the topic can be sensitive to certain individuals. The author was however objective, not looking down on any religious folk and instead highlighting important subjects and how religion affects everyone. One thing every reader will appreciate about Vasile Ghiuta is how the author writes everything based on facts and proven theories. The author simplifies complex concepts to the satisfaction of both seasoned and young readers.
The Philosophy of Vice is a sharply observant and thought-provoking book exploring various topics from the authors unique philosophical views.
