It is a very in depth reference for the bible student. Recommended.
Great care was taken to date events as accurately as possible. Considering it was written in 1650 (and the limited resources Ussher had) I am amazed at the accuracy. Ussher took great care to minimize editorializing and most of the editorializing that goes on is that of the authors of the cited works.
If you want a chronological recording of history gathered in one book you could do far worse than this. This is not a book for light reading. If you a looking for a light pleasant read this is not your book. But if you are a student of history and appreciate the efforts of a dedicated scholar to record events as faithfully as he could determine you will find this book most appealing.
This is a treasured book in my library and it is one I give to special friends.
