This is the first volume in a bold new series that tells the stories of all peoples, connecting historical events from Europe to the Middle East to the far coast of China, while still giving weight to the characteristics of each country. Susan Wise Bauer provides both sweeping scope and vivid attention to the individual lives that give flesh to abstract assertions about human history.
Dozens of maps provide a clear geography of great events, while timelines give the reader an ongoing sense of the passage of years and cultural interconnection. This narrative history employs the methods of "history from beneath"-literature, epic traditions, private letters and accounts-to connect kings and leaders with the lives of those they ruled. The result is an engrossing tapestry of human behavior from which we may draw conclusions about the direction of world events and the causes behind them.

mom1 Stars Out Of 5Bad booksAugust 22, 2014momThis is not a good history book. It's boring and not well written. After trying it for a week I had to order another history book for my history loving student.
Do yourself a favor and do not order this!!!

This is true because Christianity is well grounded in history, without historical facts such as if Christ be not risen our faith is in vain. This book provides a great background to the OT era. It includes the latest finds and for Bible students and laypeople alike, this means that we can trust the OT as we have it today.
