This is the story of a missing branch of God's chosen people, the Israelites. Ten tribes of the northern Hebrew kingdom of "Ephraim" were conquered, taken into captivity by the Assyrians in the eighth century, B.C., and never heard from again. Jewish and Christian scholars have long speculated on their disappearance, and Christ in the New Testament referred to their continuing existence in Matthew 10:5-6 and 15:24. Where did they go? Historian and scholar, W.H. Bennett, a long-time fellow of the Royal Geographic Society, spent fifty years following their trail. He examined leads such as language, heraldry, culture, and prophecy fulfillment, solving at last the mystery of their disappearance from the Middle-East scene, and their identification in the world today. In separate, well-researched chapters, Mr. Bennett studied twelve individual tribes who entered Europe from Asia, showing that each one exhibited distinctive Hebrew-Semitic features. These are the Hibernians, Trojans, Iberians, Danaans, Milesians, Gauls, Cymry, Saxons, Jutes, Scots, Danes, and Normans. Twelve valuable appendixes and 21 pages of comprehensive indexes (Scripture, persons, places, and subjects) round out this important book. Over 175 maps, charts, and illustrations, prepared during many years of research, help tell the story of these lost Israelites. The information contained in this book is an important key to understanding the fulfillment of the Biblical promises and covenants in our modern world. An excellent companion volume to the "Symbols" book above. Destined to also be a classic foundational study in its field, this work uses clear, simple, understandable language to tell the story of the two houses of Israel and their individual destinies. Size 6 x 8.875 inches, 248 pages (236 + xii). Highly recommended!

W.H. Bennett's THE STORY OF CELTO-SAXON ISRAEL is an excellent resource for those desiring to know more regarding their true Israelite heritage. Not only is the textual information quite detailed, it is written in a style that doesn't 'overwhelm' one with just facts. Also, the charts, maps & illustrations complement the textual content quite nicely and aid in better understanding what is written.
