Your ancient history questions can be answered with unmatched precision. James Ussher's Annals of the World offers you a comprehensive chronological examination of history from the beginning of time to 70 A.D. His meticulous research of over 12,000 historical documents (many no longer available) and 2000 quotes from the Bible or the Apocrypha has been compiled into the most interesting history of the world you are ever likely to read.

Could an investigation of ancient civilizations and their historical records prove the accuracy of the Holy Bible? Annals of the World, originally published in Latin in 1650, is an unparalleled academic chronology of both sacred and secular history. Ussher's highly regarded historical timeline has been the foundation of many translations of the Bible and was included in the margins of many King James Bibles throughout the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Answers to your age of the earth questions and Bible contradiction theories can be found in your personal exploration of human history within these 960 pages.

One of history's most famous and well-respected historians. James Ussher devoted himself wholly to the defense of the Christian faith. This highly educated and well-traveled historian devoted several years to writing this monumental history of the ancient world.

In 2003, his literary classic was given a complete scholarly review for accuracy, translated into English and published for the modern reader.

A must-have for libraries of all sizes. Universities, public and private schools, professors, independent scholars, and pastors will find this to be an invaluable historical resource.

A beautifully bound hard cover copy is also available and with it a complimentary CD offering maps, timelines, Biblical synopses, historical summaries and more.
