Volume I, in the words of the author:

In Volume I of The Mystery of History, I cover world history from Creation to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The text spans the incredible stories of ancient times, ancient lands, and ancient peoples. Where most ancient studies encompass only Egypt, Greece, and Rome, The Mystery of History goes much farther.

In Volume I, I include chronologically based stories from all around the world, including Asia, North America, and the Holy Lands.  Beginning with the Garden of Eden, stories will spread from Sumer and Babel to Troy, Phoenicia, and Assyria.  The study of early civilizations will include King Wu of China and Asoka of India as well as King David, Julius Caesar, and Xerxes of Persia. Above all, a favorite feature of Volume I is the weaving of Bible history with world history.  In reality, it is all world history.  But for most of us, history has not been taught this way.  It has not been integrated.

In The Mystery of History, I have retold major stories from the Bible in the order that they happened alongside significant world history events and figures.  As an example, Bible characters and world history figures living just decades apart include:  Joshua and King Tut; Daniel and Aesop; Ezekiel and Buddha; Nehemiah and Socrates; and Cleopatra and Herod the Great.  Imagine lining up such amazing figures on one master timeline!  Imagine learning their stories back to back in the order they happened!  For most of us, it’s an illuminating experience.
