This is the classic reference on world history, recognized as the most comprehensive general history ever written, the result of four decades of work by Will and Ariel Durant - a set that The New York Times called "a splendid, broad panorama of hereditary culture in words and images that the layman can fully understand." This series began as an effort to write a history on the nineteenth century, an undertaking that Will Durant realized could only be understood in terms of what had come before. So the Durants embarked on an encyclopedic survey of all civilization, ancient and modern, Occidental and Oriental.

Mark Davidson, author of Daniel Revisited, has created a unique interpretation of end-time Bible prophecy using the ancient concentric reading method known as chiastics. Lost centuries ago, it was rediscovered by seminary scholars in the eighteenth century. This reading method reveals the form of the scripture text via the flow of its words, giving us a heightened sensitivity to the words in the text. When combined with the words’ meanings, we receive a greater understanding of prophetic scripture. In Daniel Revisited, Davidson showed us the four signposts—four events prophesied in Daniel 7 and 8 and Revelation 6—to occur in the Middle East prior to the Rapture and Tribulation. Now in Chronicles of the End Times, chiastic reading has been applied to all of Daniel, Revelation, and other books, pulling back the veil further to expand our view from four events to all the main events, from the Middle East to the ends of the earth. A chiastic reading of Daniel, Zechariah 1–6, Matthew 23–25, and Revelation—all shown in ninety illustrations—yields many solid answers to the following questions as well as to many others: — How do Daniel 2 and 7 interact, and why are the kingdoms metals and beasts? — What’s the purpose of Daniel’s Aramaic chapters, and how do they affect the end times? — Which parts of Daniel 11 are to be fulfilled in ancient times versus end times? — What is the real identity of Mystery Babylon, and how does this help us in the end times? — How do the two scrolls of Revelation give greater understanding of the trumpets and bowls? — What are the Seven Events of the end times, and which one is next? This all may seem incredible for one book, but is nevertheless true. The chiastic reading of Bible prophecy revolutionizes our view of the end times and how we read Bible end-time prophecy.

The Alphabet Versus The Goddess

This groundbreaking book proposes that the rise of alphabetic literacy reconfigured the human brain and brought about profound changes in history, religion, and gender relations. Making remarkable connections across brain function, myth, and anthropology, Dr. Shlain shows why pre-literate cultures were principally informed by holistic, right-brain modes that venerated the Goddess, images, and feminine values. Writing drove cultures toward linear left-brain thinking and this shift upset the balance between men and women, initiating the decline of the feminine and ushering in patriarchal rule. Examining the cultures of the Israelites, Greeks, Christians, and Muslims, Shlain reinterprets ancient myths and parables in light of his theory. Provocative and inspiring, this book is a paradigm-shattering work that will transform your view of history and the mind.
