If you actually read this book, Bill Cooper in his introduction sets out to use sources other than the Bible to prove or disprove whether the geneologies listed in Genesis are accurate. Will Genesis hold up to this scrutiny? He traces the lineage of the Irish, Brits, Germanics etc through back to Japheth using historical documents that are well known to be accurate by archeologists and historians. He's spent 25+ years of research investigating this and has everything well documented.

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!

This is a well-researched book (in fact, it is one of my favorites and I have given it 4 stars.) But that does not mean that it does not have several significant problems that the reader must deal with before accepting it wholesale.

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.

This is a well researched book that provides documentary evidence that many things we "modern" folk consider mythological may have their roots in historical events. Most of the documents are European and from the Middle Ages--but few manuscripts of any kind exist anywhere before that. Using the notes in Klaeber's Beowulf, I can verify that Cooper's genealogies of the various Old English royal houses are accurate. Or perhaps I should say, accurate duplications of what the old manuscripts say. You may not agree with every conclusion, but it will challenge your thinking.

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.

I would challenge the last reviewer to name some of his evidence that can't be refuted... He is ignorant, and this book is extremely well documented,and all sources are listed. He also admits that some sources aren't accepted because of their disaccordance with evolution; but isn't that the whole point of the book? Please keep your mouth shut if you haven't done any research on the other side of things.

Every Christian should read this book. As the previous reviewer stated it brings up a lot of support for the Biblical account from various ancient and pagan sources, and reveals how the ancient Celts, Germans, and Middle Eastern cultures all perserved their ancient heritage as presented in God's Word. The chart at the back discussing how the various tribes all remembered the names of their Genesis forefathers is simply incredible.
