The Thousand Years series

by W. Cleon Skousen

Cover picture

From the days of Adam until the advent of Christ are 4,000 years of human history which are recorded in the Old Testament—a standard work that contains many passages and scriptural mysteries which are obscure and difficult to understand and grasp. Through the scholarship and writings of W. Cleon Skousen, the Old Testament can now come alive in rich and glorious detail.

Included in this three-book set are:

The First 2,000 Years—Much about the early history of mankind had become entirely lost until the restoration of the gospel. These details about the first 2,000 years of human history are all to be found in this exciting volume, including the lives of the ancient patriarchs Adam, Seth, Enoch, Noah, Abraham and other notable personalites from the Old Testament.

The Third Thousand Years—From the days of Father Abraham to the rise of King David were ten turbulent centuries filled with pathos and drama. These were the times of many notable personalities from the Old Testament, including the famous patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, as well as the dynamic story of Joseph. Their exemplary lives, as they stood true and faithful in the midst of adversity, are especially poignant today. They were followed by the amazing life of Moses, and the Ephraimite general, Joshua. This book also discusses the lives of Gideon, Deborah, Ruth, Samuel, Saul and the rise of David.

The Fourth Thousand Years—There is no period when the distant roar of history can be heard pounding on the pages of the past with greater fury than during the ten savage centuries known as The Fourth Thousand Years. It was an age which demanded the resounding and inspired voices of many of God’s greatest spokesmen—Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Jonah, Lehi, Nephi, Daniel, Zechariah, and many others. The lives and times of all these men are in these pages.

The extensive use of maps, charts and illustrations in each of these books also facilitate the rapid unfolding of the Biblical story. You can now purchase all of these books as a set at a special discounted price.
