So much work has gone into this book, both the original and the update. I feel privileged to own it. It will be a long time before I can say I have read it cover to cover, but I do plan to use it often as a reference.
Beautiful and fascinating!

I LOVE this book! It should be on every homeschool library shelf! It is not only beautiful, but very informative. I have worked on reading it cover to cover and I've used parts of it as a read-aloud with my 7 year old for Ancient History. Combine this resource with Dr. David Down resources, World's Story, and, even though it's not a MB resource, Mystery of History and you have a thorough history spine to then add in more MB resources! Adam and Eve, Noah, the Ark, dinosaurs, the Israelites, and so on... Ussher's timeline is rich in Biblical history!
Perfect

I love history and this book is awesome. I was also recently given the timeline that goes with this and it is just wonderful. At the beginning of this book there is an introduction talking about to couple who transcribed this book and it’s really fascinating! This is a wonderful addition to history and bible studies
