He is very well spoken in his writing which makes for an extremely interesting and fact filled read. I recommend this to any Christian interested in solidifying the authority of the Genesis account of history...and to anyone who questions whether Genesis is just ancient mythology.
Thanks Bill for your hard work!
For example, there are several places where Cooper is either careless with his sources or leaves information out on purpose. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but the absence of some very important information severely undercuts his case.
The first case has to do with the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, which Cooper notes contain the phrase, "from Adam to the Flood were 2242 winters" (his translation). "It would be interesting," Cooper muses, "to discover whence the Saxons got this figure of 2242 years for the antediluvian period, for it does not appear in the Latin Vulgate which gives 1656 for this period, thus agreeing with the Hebrew; and they were not familiar with the Septuagint version which gives in any case a period of 2256 years for the antediluvian era. However, their figure does agree exactly with that of the Britons, as passed down to us by Nennius." (p.122)
That last sentence provides us a clue missed by Cooper. I went to Nennius and checked the sources that he claimed to use - one of them was Eusebius. Cooper apparently figured that Nennius was referring to Eusebius' Historia Ecclesiastica, which would likely not be a useful source to study genealogies - that explains why it does not appear in Cooper's bibliography. However, Eusebius' Chronicle, ([...]) which attempts to present a more universal history, provides a chronology broken down almost exactly like that of Nennius (no surprise there). The period Eusebius notes for Adam to the Flood, according to the Septuagint, is 2242 years. We have a Bingo.Read more ›
One group that will reject "After the Flood" are those who, like Voltaire, consider anything written before the Renaissance to have no historical value. Most of Cooper's sources are rather bland historical chronicles--and in many cases unrelated manuscripts agree with one another. The sources may not be as well known as Tacitus or Plutarch, but there is no reason to believe them any less reliable.
I have found this book a useful supplement in teaching Beowulf, and I am sure people who teach the Bible would, too. While it does some touchdowns around the West (Europe and the Americas), and one in China, its focus is the British Isles.
BTW, the Author points out Obvious Reasons why these Facts are not Permitted through the Mainstream Media. It would Crush the Evolutionary Theory & point People to the Truth of the Bible, it's Historical Accuracy, and to the Creator of the Universe.
There's no Doubt that Evolutionary Proponents will Countereffect this kind of Knowledge for their own Agendas and so on, sadly they are doing that all the Time, Brainwashing the Masses with Various Tactics etc.
Now with the Internet at your Fingertips, anyone can check out both sides of the matter & The Motives behind them.
The Motive of this Author is clear, he wants to Inform anyone who wants to learn the Genuine History of Mankind & point them to the Creator of the Universe.
There's a vast Conspiracy out there, those behind it will do just about anything to keep these Facts covered up for their very own Agendas etc.
For those of you who are after Genuine History of the World, this is a Gem.
Go for it!
