In his new book, “A New Chronology for Old Testament Times: With Solutions to Many Hitherto Unsolved Problems through the Use of Rare Texts” (published by AuthorHouse), author Jan van Tuyl revisits the timeline of the Bible, from the arrival of Adam in this world to the arrival of Jesus Christ.

Originally, van Tuyl was intrigued only by the longevity of the people who were born before the Great Flood; however, as his research progressed, he became further interested by the entire B.C. chronology represented in the Bible and in other texts.

“A New Chronology for Old Testament Times” uses a great number of non-biblical sources in research and is written in an easy-to-read style sure to appeal to both the general public and the professional readers. It brings a fresh and as van Tuyl describes, “a more correct view on the history of that region.”

The book’s special appeal lies in its attention to detail and its many unknown facts about known people, all told in a fast-paced style interspersed with a pinch of humor making the book a very enjoyable read.

When asked what he wants readers to take away from his writing, van Tuyl responded “that nobody in this world has a monopoly on the truth. Nobody and no group can claim to have the only true view or belief.”
