The First 2000 Years: From Adam to Abraham
The first 2,000 years of human history occupy only 36 pages of the Bible. This epoch was once shrouded in mystery and myth, but modern revelation now answers many difficult questions: Did the Patriarchs really live for hundreds of years? Why were pagan religions so seductive? When did the Great Flood occur? How did Enoch set up Zion and eliminate poverty and crime?

Mr. Skousen's series of books allowed me, as a convert, to understand the 'truth' (or Gospel) of the LDS Church better than any other source beyond the scriptures themselves.

In preparation for teaching the Old Testament in seminary this fall, I purchased this book. I am so grateful I did! Not only did it clarify my own personal questions, but I know I will be able to give my students a clearer understanding the Old Testament and help them see things from the Lord's eternal perspective.

After completing this book I found it to be a wonderful resource and guide to the Old Testament. The author presents many interesting insights that leave the reader in a state of pondering. Further, his insights and teachings lead the reader to better appreciate and want to study the Old Testament. As difficult as the Old Testament may be the author is able to tackle this and present the reader with an easy to understand guide that is not only informative, but fascinating in the same instance. I would highly suggest this book for any who find the Old Testament a difficult reading, or any who enjoy the Old Testament in general. After reading the first book I am excited to continue on to the next.
