    1. I read this book in a handful of spurts over a couple of years. I'd read a part and set it down for months on end. Simply, some parts aimed at my interest more than others whilst some parts seemed better developed than others. What I find so fascinating is the relation between different historical and mythological texts brought together here in a coherent story. Related the events of the Illiad in relation to Egypt and the Hittite empire, for example, brings together history in a way that isn't [...]

    2. The conventional view of Biblical archaeologists is that archaelogy does not support the key biblical stories such as the Exodus, Invasion of Canaan and golden age of Solomon.The ‘New Chronology’ concept advanced by David Rohl and colleagues shifts the relationship between archaeological, Egyptological and Biblical chronologies, and this brings out many apparent agreements between the evidence at aligned points of the three chronologies. It is thus argued that the New Chronology is correct a [...]

    3. This is a great read for anyone interested in archeological "proof" of some of the mysteries of the Old Testament. Subjects include the search for the Garden of Eden, Noah's Ark, the Exodus of Moses and the Israelites from Egypt including the Parting of the Red Sea, King David's Ark of the Covenant, and the fabled Lost Tribes of Israel of the Babylonian Exile. Here is a studied, scientific look at the possibilities that succeeded in sharpening my interest in further O.T. studies. Just be aware t [...]

    4. This book was awesome and went through the history of the people of the bible from the very beginnings. It's a fascinating read using the new chronology, which is backed up with astronomical events and archaeology. It's not an easy read with all the information in it, but it is worth every minute spent reading. I think anyone who is interested in Biblical history or archaeology would find this book very interesting.

    5. Rohl has it all, the Indiana Jones of the archaeologists and chronologists. I read this for research (while completing a story about Goliath) but while immersed I finally understood how so many ancient historians have got their dates wrong. I'm a New Chronology Convert! Recommended.

    6. Wonderful. I think the archeology community needs to be more open-minded about his New Chronology.
