Publishers Description Following Master Books' release and unprecedented sales of Ussher's The Annals of the World, the release of this amazing book had to be next. The Chronology of the Old Testament has one goal to accomplish: to demonstrate "that every chronological statement contained in the Sacred Writ is consistent with all other chronological statements contained there-in." The author carefully and thoroughly investigates the chronological and mathematical facts of the Old Testament, proving them to be accurate and reliable. This biblically sound, scholarly, and easy-to-understand book will enlighten and astound its readers with solutions and alternatives to many questions Bible scholars have had over the centuries. Were there 66, 70, or 75 "souls" in Egypt when Jacob arrived? Were the Hebrews in Egypt for 430 years, or a shorter length of time? How long did Jacob have to wait before marrying the first of Laban's daughters, and how long did he wait for the second? What year was Christ born? With reliable explanatory text, charts, and diagrams.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Chronology of the Old Testament?
Think about how to view the charts before reading... Jan 16, 2007
The Chronology of the Old Testament by Floyd Jones is true to God's pure and preserved Word, the authorized version (King James Version) of the Bible. It is difficult to trust other chronologies that do not start with the solid foundation that God has given us a Bible with no mistakes or errors. This reason alone was all I needed. What's more, the book is very thorough and easy for me to read and wrap my head around some of the more difficult concepts of Biblical Chronology.
Before you buy though, consider thinking through the following... The software to view the charts is included on a CD fixed to the inside back cover. However, the author and I highly recommend being able to look at the charts as you read through the book. There are at least three options that I am aware of for viewing the charts.
1) Read the book next to your desktop/laptop computer. Since I like do my reading on the sofa without a computer, this does not work for me.
2) Print the charts using the above software. Being in a time crunch and for several other reasons, I chose this option. Based on experience, printing the charts is no easy task. For instance, Chart 5 measures ten inches by ten feet. Yes, that was ten feet (as in 120 inches). Unless you have a really long piece of paper, you will use up about 25 8-1/2 x 11 letter-sized sheets of paper. The good news is that printing the wall-sized charts can be done with the included software. Simply zoom in, print, pan right, print, pan right, print, etc. I then used a paper trimmer to match the right side of the current page with the left side of the next page. I then proceeded to use an entire roll of clear scotch tape to join the pages together. Place the tape across the front of the first joint and across the back of the second joint alternating until all sheets are combined. Upon completion, I ended up with a foldable frugal full-sized chart.
3) Buy full-size prints of the charts. The charts are $39.95 (US) plus shipping and handling. They are available from the Digital Vault at A&E - The Graphics Complex. They can be contacted in any of the following ways: Telephone: 713-579-1234 Toll Free: 888-621-0022 (ask for the Digital Vault) Fax: 713-966-8525 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Mail: Attn: Digital Vault A&E - The Graphics Complex P.O. Box 27286 Houston, Texas 77227 Reference "Floyd Jones Charts" when ordering. Each chart is printed on 11" wide, bright white 20# bond, folded at 8-1/2" intervals so that each chart folds and stacks to a size no larger than 8-1/2 x 11".
Exceptional Jul 29, 2006
Although the the charts presented on CD ROM can not be printed with the standard Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf files), they CAN be printed if you have Adobe Acrobat Professional. This is available for a free 30 day trial from Adobe, and I have been able to print the charts very easily (they are perfectly readable as the can be printed at full size, shrunk or enlarged as you wish). The book is an exceptional purchase and is very interesting to read, particularly if you are interested in the Bible. The charts encourage searching the Scriptures. Easily worth 5 stars... maybe 10 stars ;)
Solving Biblical problems with the Bible Mar 3, 2006
While the other reviewer is correct, that printing the charts is quite difficult without the proper tools, the wealth of information included in this volume are worth twice the price even without printed charts. Some of the problems solved in this book I had been looking at for years without a feasible solution. Some of the problems solved, I didn't even know were problems.
Dr. Thomas has degrees in mathematics, geology, chemistry and education. He is an ex-evolutionist. He relies on the King James Version of the Bible, and the texts from which it was translated. Highly recommended for anyone who is beginning to doubt the veracity of God's Word.
The Chronology of the Old Testament Feb 21, 2006
Beware! The front of the book states, "Solving the Bible's Most Intriguing Mysteries ... Wall-Sized Chronological Charts Included on CD-ROM". The CD is included & you can view the charts, but you cannot print most of them & be able to read them. However, on page 325, it explains that, "If you are interested in a set of full size prints of the historical charts that appear on the enclosed CD..." that it will cost you another $39.95 plus shipping & taxes.
