This book provides a unique blending of the Bible account of Adam and his kin with information from sciences, archeology, ancient traditions and other sources. While scripturally accurate, it reads as easily as a story, yet teaches actual history. It tells the story from creation to Abram, encompassing the whole period usually called "prehistoric" in modern history textbooks. Charts, maps and illustrations help to give a clear picture of the times and places. It offers insights into the world before the great flood and into the rebuilding of civilization afterward. In the process, it shows the sources of all pagan beliefs.
It can be used as supplementary reading with a course using Ruth's companion book, "Genesis: Finding Our Roots," or with any other Genesis study. Appropriate for the whole family, it's an ideal read-aloud for family devotions.
