The Third Thousand Years: From Abraham to David (Hardcover Book)
Who would have guessed the amazing quantity of new facts that have recently come to light concerning the brilliant servants of God who ministered in the earth between 2000 and 1000 B.C.?
The Third Thousand Years were ten tempestuous centuries and we now know more about the lives and writings of the leading prophets of that exciting age than ever before in history.
For example, a whole treasure of prophecy concerning our own day was once in the fiftieth chapter of Genesis, but somehow it was stripped out of the Bible. Now this tremendously important scripture has been restored, and in this present volume the complete text is analyzed in every detail.
There is also the full panorama of the amazing life of Moses, and the flood of miracles that exceeded any other epic until the ministry of Jesus Christ.
There is also the story of Joshua, the great Ephraimite general who conquered Palestine. Then there are now details concerning the lives of Gideon, Deborah, Samson, Ruth, Eli, Samuel, and the tragic biography of the famous King Saul.
All of these belong to the provocative and dramatic unfolding of events during the exciting three thousand years.
This book is designed to make the study of the Bible an inspirational pleasure. Although presented for easy reading, the text is carefully documented so that every important point can be correlated with appropriate passages in the scriptures. The extensive use of maps, charts and illustrations also facilitate the rapid unfolding of the Biblical story.
