The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel -- The story of Abraham and establishment of the ancient empire of Israel! Cover artwork by long-time member of our association, Ruth Lincoln.
A fresh look at the early history of Israel, with special emphasis on the little-known and immensely important events that helped to shape our modern world. Here is the untold story of Israel's sojourn in Egypt and evidence that God's People visited distant lands in Europe and America in ancient times. Author Steven Collins retells the story of the Book of Genesis and the lives of the Patriarchs with a keen insight into the meaning of interesting clues that other authors have missed. This is not just a rehash of history, but a re-analysis of a foundational book of Holy Scripture in the light of subsequent events and Bible prophecy. In addition to all of that, it is quite a good read!!!
A wonderfully-written and lucid account, full of little-known historical and Biblical details that take you "behind the scenes" to one of the most important periods of Biblical history. The central theme of this book is the Biblical covenant which God made with the Patriarchs and their descendants. This included the Biblical promise of numerous descendants who would build powerful, wealthy nations. Over 100 maps, charts, and illustrations, and extensive indexes and bibliography. Beautiful full-color cover artwork by a long-time member of CBIA/The Servant People, Ruth Lincoln, depicts Jacob's prophetic blessing found in Genesis chapter 48. One of the best examples of current Old Testament scholarship which upholds our belief. You will love and benefit from this book! Softcover 6 x 9 inches, 296 pages. (280 + xvi)
