News of the Past
(3 volume set)
The Idea: to retell the ancient, hallowed story of the
Bible as if it were happening today - or, differently expressed,
as if the ancients had been in possession of all the facilities
and know-how connected with the production of a modern newspaper!
The Result: a serious, authentic and well-founded portrayal of
the people and events of the Biblical era, giving the reader
dimensions of depth that no history textbook, with its
necessarily compartmentalized, chapter-by-chapter approach, can
provide: depth in geographical extension and depth in aspects of
living. The perusal of any one issue in Chronicles will give the
reader both an overall view of simultaneous happenings in the
Holy Land and in other countries, and a fresh insight into the
political, economic and social problems, as well as the everyday
life, of our ancestors.
Prepared by a staff of established scholars and experienced
researchers, experts in history, archaelogy and the social
sciences, writers and journalists, Chronicles faithfully follows
the biblical account.
By lending new life, new color and new dimension to the men and
women who populate the Books of the Bible, the editors of this
unique, publishing venture have contributed immeasurably to the
public's understanding, appreciation and love of the Bible,
throughout the world.
Contains all three volumes, covering the biblical and
post-biblical eras, and up to the modern era.
