Note: “Annals of the World” has now been reduced in price!
In one of the most significant Christian publishing events of our era, James Ussher’s colossal history of the world, titled “Annals of the World” is now available from WorldNetDaily ? in English ? after over 300 years of being accessible only to scholars.
In this masterful and legendary volume, commissioned by Master Books to be updated from the 17th-century original Latin manuscript to modern English and made available to the general public, can be found the fascinating history of the ancient world from the Genesis creation through the destruction of the Jerusalem temple.
Why was Julius Caesar kidnapped in 75 B.C.? Why did Alexander the Great burn his ships in 326 B.C.? What really happened when the sun “went backward” as a sign to Hezekiah? What does secular history say about the darkness at the Crucifixion?
In the years 1650-1654, James Ussher set out to write a history of the world from creation to A.D. 70. The result was published in 1658 as the literary classic “The Annals of the World.” This famous comprehensive history of the world, originally published in Latin, offers a look at history rarely seen. Ussher traveled throughout Europe, gathering much information from the actual historical documents. Many of these documents are no longer available, having been destroyed since the time of his research.
Integrating biblical history (around 15 percent of the text is from the Bible) with secular sources, Ussher wrote this masterpiece. Considered not only a literary classic, but also an accurate reference, “The Annals of the World” was so highly regarded for its preciseness that the timeline from it was included in the margins of many King James Version Bibles throughout the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.
“The Annals of the World” is a necessary addition to any church library, pastor?s library, or any library ? public or personal. The entire text has been updated from 17th-century English to present-day vernacular in a five-year project commissioned by Master Books. Containing many human-interest stories from the original historical documents collected by Ussher, this is more than just a history book ? it?s a work of history.
