Book Description

James Ussher (4 January 1581–21 March 1656) was Anglican Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland between 1625–1656 and a prolific religious scholar who most famously published a chronology which calculated the date of Creation as October 23, 4004 BC.

Ussher now concentrated on his research and writing, and returned to the study of chronology and the church fathers. After a 1647 work on the origin of the creeds in 1648 Ussher published a treatise on the calendar. This was a warm-up for his most famous work, the Annales veteris testamenti, a prima mundi origine deducti ("Annals of the Old Testament, deduced from the first origins of the world"), which appeared in 1650 and its continuation, Annalium pars postierior in 1654. In this work, he calculated the date of creation to be nightfall preceding 23 October, 4004 BC.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version review--don't buy 900 page kindle books August 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is concerning the Kindle version of this book. I have already reviewed the hard-cover version as having 5-stars. But the fact is that the kindle edition is simply not navigable. It has a table of contents, but even knowing what "Age" you are looking for won't help you because you may have to flip through 150 pages to find what you're looking for. This might not be a problem if you plan to read this 900-page book cover to cover, but it is best used to find individual bits of information of a specific time frame, such as Alexander the Great or the time period of Israel's judges. You're much better off getting the paper version.

Very long and tedious at times, but considering that it was written in the 17th century, it is very informative.
