"Hanson compellingly executes his premise of paralleling biblical history with current events. Few scholars have the background, wisdom and knowledge of Dr. Hanson to make such a case"
--Brigitte Gabriel, author of They Must Be Stopped and Because They Hate--New English Review
About the Author
Kenneth L. Hanson is an Associate professor in the University of Central Florida Judaic Studies Program. As a young student of the ancient Near East, he lived in Israel, on Jerusalem s Mt. Zion, and studied Hebrew in a program for immigrants to the modern Jewish state. He then earned a master's degree in international/inter-cultural communication, and subsequently worked for a television news gathering operation in southern Lebanon. Living in the politically volatile region of northern Galilee (subject to regular rocket attacks), he daily commuted over a hostile border where, in addition to his broadcasting duties, he served as the company liaison with the Israeli Army. He went on to earn a doctorate in Hebrew Language and Literature from the University of Texas at Austin. His multiple books and his appearances on syndicated radio and national television (The History Channel), have brought ancient insight into everyone's world.

Readers with a love of American history and the Bible will be enriched by this highly novel approach that also weaves into the Biblical narrative many of the issues that divided North and South on the eve of the civil War and affect our nation today in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election.It will be even more invaluable for those who tend to reject any relevance of the Bible for analyzing our current political and economic situation.
Does the Bible (particularly the Old Testament) have anything to say about private initiative, welfare policy or eminent domaine? Hanson has much to say about these and other current matters up before the electorate.
