“Biblical History and the Generations”: a wonderfully detailed recounting of biblical events from a historical-philosophical perspective. “Biblical History and the Generations” is the creation of published author Harold Bates, a retired medical biologist.

Harold shares, “The Book of Enoch began to perplex the ancients before Christ. Predestination had certainly influenced Homer’s Greeks. Later, in Jeremiah’s time, we realize that the J source and the E source of the Word were combined; this resulted in the setting side by side, slightly different accounts of the same events. In 200 BC, we are given the Eratosthenes Map of the world, as well as his calculation of the circumference of the earth. Clearly, we begin to understand that there was some opposition to Enoch believers at the time of the letter of Aristeas. Even in Judah they searched and found that Judah, or Edom, or Egypt, or Arabia, could not have been the location of its commencement. With mapmaking in use, the location of Enoch was known to have been far to the north of their world.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Harold Bates’s new book is a unique take on the richness and interconnectedness of events that happened as far back as 4241 BC in Africa, tracing to the era of the new church with Peter’s diary, the only witnessed firsthand account of the ministry and resurrection of the risen Christ.

Bates writes with a matter-of-fact wonder and appreciation for the historical backgrounds and cultural contexts of the Bible’s many stories, and this is the sense that permeates the text to infect the reader with the same awe for the unfolding of this great epic in humanity’s history.
