A homeschooling mom recently asked me what resources could I recommend for learning Biblical history, and to begin unlearning the evolutionary lies as they relate to history that most of us were fed, and which fill library bookshelves.
The Story of the Ancient World by Christine Miller and H.A. Guerber is Biblical and ancient history told in a storybook format and accessible to young and old alike. It contains distillations of truths gleaned from all the other resources I am recommending below. I am listing these other recommendations in the order they should be read if someone is just starting out on a study of Biblical history, from easiest and most general to hardest and most specific:
Genesis: Finding Our Roots by Ruth Beechick
After the Flood by Bill Cooper
The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop – the Babylonian (Nimrod) root of paganism
The Long War Against God by Henry Morris – the root of evolution in ancient history
Josephus: Antiquities of the Jews
Annals of the World by James Ussher – not easy reading, very detailed
Chronology of the Old Testament by Floyd Nolan Jones – for dating questions
Ancient Mythology by Jacob Bryant (six volumes) – mythology’s roots in Biblical history
And some helpful articles and essays at the Answers in Genesis website:
The Sixteen Grandsons of Noah – evidence for the table of nations in Genesis 10
The Original Unknown God of China – evidence for Genesis in ancient Chinese script
Athena and Eve – Greek mythology’s Garden of Eden roots
The Serpent Worshippers – mythology rooted in man’s rebellion from God
Rediscovering Biblical history, and the fact that there is mountains of evidence for it which has been buried and discarded, but never disproven, is a like a treasure hunt for a lifetime. The above is a good start, but as you begin, you will discover other books and resources, which will continue to add little pieces to the big picture. I hope you enjoy the search as much as I have.
I had read Ralph Woodrow had revised Hislop´s work and found the footnotes and work to be very unreliable and even fraudulent. Would like to know your point of view..
Yes, I do have information and an opinion about the Hislop controversy. Look for a detailed post about Hislop on Monday, July 16.
