How far back does history go? What did the inventers of writing say about where people come from? How could anyone believe in the pagan gods? Why do so many cultures have a seven-day week? Does history repeat itself? What could we read to find this stuff out? And what about those gods of Greece? Who thought of them, and what made their beliefs strong enough to spend vast sums to honor them, even across language barriers? What about Noah and his flood? What about Babel? How do they all fit together? In From Noah to Hercules, Brian Forbes answers these questions by investigating various accounts of the origins of mankind. Forbes draws on Scripture, history, and science to argue that many gods and mythical figures from civilizations past were actually historic figures. Forbes goes on to conclude that many mythological stories are historically accurate if you remove some of the more fantastic elements. Forbes offers a fascinating account of early man based on ancient history and mythology. He will change the way you think about our history and our ancestors.
