When one thinks of Sir Isaac Newton, one normally thinks of a great scientist and mathematician. His contributions to these areas of human knowledge are enormous. However, one does not normally think of Newton as an historian. Such was the greatness of his intellect, that he found history a pleasant diversion for his idle moments. He drafted a book on the ancient history and the Gentile nations and worked on it periodically for over forty years but never published it. It was published posthumously in 1728, a year after he died. However, his writing style followed that of the times in which he lived making the classic text very difficult to read for modern readers. Master Books is republishing this landmark book in a format and style suitable for today's readers. Contains diagrams of Solomon's Temple Critical analysis of historical sources Re-visits the chronologies of major civilizations The same genius he applies to other disciplines, Newton brings to bear on ancient history. He notes that all the pagan nations had greatly exaggerated their history, creating much needless confusion. Like a first rate defense attorney, Newton cross-examines the ancient writers, using their own words against them to expose their logical inconsistencies. He then develops a more sound chronology using the scientific method based on logic, observations, astronomy and just plain common sense. He is not satisfied with just showing one way of determining a historical date but shares with the reader many independent ways of using the classical data mixed with common sense to establish the approximate date for many important secular historical events. Most of secular ancient history before 700 BC will need a drastic revision in the light of Newton's detailed findings. Keep an open mind as you read this book. Your view of ancient history will never be the same again "
