Hendersonville, TN (PRWEB) January 25, 2012
Brian D. Starr has written a work that is very appealing to those students or scholars of genealogies that date back to the Bible. In Knights, Romans, Greeks and God the bloodlines of the Christian world are explored as well as the interrelationships that date back to the Egyptians. Most Christians would consider the topic important because written history has been so hard to preserve, gather and collate. Sources have not been reliable and families who have authentic documents have not been forthcoming in volunteering information because Christianity has been too mired in violent struggles and what the author calls “other factors.”
The Bible, first, last, and always is the source of all knowledge and wisdom for Christian people for the axial age – the age when various (and contending) world religions rose out of pre-history. Foremost among these religions is Judaism (arguably the first religion to worship one God). Starr’s work explores elements in Judaism such as the lineage of the Kings of Judah, Mary Magdalene’s descendants and such and has traced lineages right into the middle ages (when records were more reliable and families can trust to trace their roots with more accuracy).
The revenants of the Western world’s founding families have had much scholarship dedicated to it. The forces of history have not been kind to those who have claims to being principals and Starr takes careful note that whatever secrets he has divulged in this work are those which have had supporting documentation in other author’s works. The author’s thesis, though, is original and should be acknowledged by the academe as a source book.
This book will be featured at the 2012 Bologna Book Fair in Bologna, Italy, on March 19-22, 2012 and the 2012 Taipei International Book Exhibition in Taipei, Taiwan on February 1-6, 2012.
