I don't know where the information gathered from for this book came from but I am seeing a lot of miss information given for instance in Soloman's temple, she states "two human-headed lions with wings guarded the inner Holy of Holies"! In his own palace, he had lions made of gold but not guarding the Holy of Holies in the temple. There are little bits of wrong information given in this book mixed in with right information. Read the First book of Kings chapter 5-9 in the Bible to get the real story.
