The Jezreel Valley and ancient Megiddo, the Armageddon of Revelation, are brought to center stage in this well researched and thoroughly entertaining book. Here the armies of the world have fought battles deciding the course of human history, and here too it is suggested that the final battle between good and evil will be fought in the future. All tolled, some 34 major battles have been fought in this valley, often if not usually between combatants who are foreign to the area.
In documenting the drama of conflict that has played itself out on this valley floor, Professor Cline has examined a wide variety of data recording human events in the area. He discusses the records of ancient Egypt, the Biblical texts, the cuneiform documents of Anatolia, Assyria, Babylonia, and Persia, the written material of both the Moslem and the Christian participants of the Crusades, French documentation of the Napoleonic wars in the Middle East, the Allenby diaries, letters, etc.Read more ›
The reader will be amazed at all the action that took place in Israel that is not made known in most history books. This book is well documented, and contains maps of each battle.It is easy to understand what each army was doing. The Bible scholar who wants a deeper understanding of what took place in the history of Israel will find this book follows the scripture events. It should be noted that the author expresses in detail when there is archaeological proof of events and when there is not. It is left to the reader to make the judgment as to whether or not to accept the scripture account.
This book will be an excellent addition to my library. I highly recommend it.
If you like ancient history, this is a good book to explore.
I would tell everyone its great and im not a battle kind of person and I loved it .
