This detailed handbook of the Biblical World presents the reader with a review of the ancient world, from the Fourth Millennium BCE up through the Bar Kochba Revolt of 132-135 CE.
It is a detailed backdrop to the Holy Scriptures and reviews all the major Empires and salient events which bear so heavily upon an understanding of the Biblical world. This Handbook - a masterpiece of scholarship - is a concise version of the more extensive Sacred Bridge, but the reader should always keep in mind that events in the north, as in Egypt, often had a decisive effect on biblical history.
