Overview

Hundreds of details about the early history of mankind had become entirely lost until the restoration of the gospel. These details about the first 2,000 years of human history are all to be found in this exciting volume.

We now know that Adam and Eve had two generations of children before Cain and Abel were born. The exact year of the Great Flood can now be calculated. Details about the golden age of Enoch are now available so that we can understand how the law of consecration works and how it eliminates poverty and crime.

Many difficult questions can now be answered: Did the Patriarchs really live for hundreds of years? What about the incredible population growth in ancient times? How has the geography of the earth changed since ancient times? Why were pagan religions so attractive to ancient peoples? How did they get started? And why did God hate and abhor these pagan religions so much?

One of the most magnificent stories in this book is the life of Abraham. He received revelations about astronomy and mathematics which he later taught the Egyptians. He was a remarkable example of faith and obedience, even in offering his own son.

All of these tremendously important new revelations belong to the sweeping panorama of the first 2,000 years of human history.

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.

Fully illustrated. Footnotes linked within text. Complete table of contents.

W. Cleon Skousen, the second of nine children, was born in Raymond, Alberta, Canada, in 1913. He moved to California with his parents at the age of ten.

He began a careful study of the scriptures at the age of 17 when he was called on a mission to England, and had a well-known scriptural scholar, Dr. John A. Widtsoe, as his first mentor.

He subsequently graduated from George Washington University with a Juris Doctorate degree. After law school, he spent sixteen years with the FBI, four years as chief of police in Salt Lake City, and then served for ten years as a full professor at Brigham Young University in the Department of Religion.

He has written more than a dozen books on scriptural subjects and considerably more on various secular themes.

He has conducted many tours to the Holy Land and has lectured in 45 different countries.

He and his wife Jewel have eight children and fifty grandchildren.
