Richard Rhoades holds a Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary. What started as a simple quest to find answers to questions that challenged popular thought on the origins of the Statue of Liberty, the claim that America is not in the Bible, and the belief that the Hebrew Scriptures are no longer relevant to the Christian Faith led to a nineteen year journey that began in his hometown public library. From there his research expanded to libraries across the nation and in France. Some of the more notable libraries included the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, the Atlanta Public Library, the Albuquerque Public Library, the Sacramento Public Library, the Grand Orient de France – Bibliotheque – Archives – Musee, the Bibliotheque Historique de la Ville de Paris, and the American Library in Paris, France. As a result, his nineteen year journey ended with the publication of three timely books: Lady Liberty: The Ancient Goddess of America, The Babylon Code: Is AMERICA in Prophecy?, and Faith of the Ages: The Hebraic roots of the Christian faith. He currently lives in California.
