I love this story. The author uses the Bible to weave the story of Adam and his descendants through Abraham. It makes it very clear that there was an oral history which was not that far removed from Adam, because of the long lifespans, for Abraham to receive. Also, it's a great story. ( )
This book adds flesh to the first eleven chapters of Genesis by using the biblical setting as the basis for historical fiction. Beechick remains in the realm of plausibility by not creating new characters.
Though not a novel, this book weaves into one continuous story information from many sources -- including linguistics, archaeology, astronomy and other sciences; the Bible and other history; and ancient traditions and religions. It is neatly arranged within the timeline as given in the Bible. This excursion through an almost forgotten world provides startling insights on many old questions. Have history textbooks told us the truth? How did mankind learn language? Where did the skills of civilization begin? Why do ancient writings refer to a year of 360 days? What actual events lie behind the mythologies of the world? Who kept alive the memory of the distant past? - Back cover.
