Mysterious People of the Bible: In the Light of History


A Book Synopsis: Were there intelligent civilizations on our planet prior to our human race? What did the ancients believe about the giants documented in various pre- historic writings who wreaked havoc in the Antediluvian age? Did they survive the Great Deluge? What does DNA tell us about the Neanderthals? Who was the mysterious biblical Melchizedek of Abraham’s day? C an the origin of the Hyksos kings of the 16th Egyptian Dynasty be identified? Did the “Witch of Endor” really conjure the spirit of Samuel at the bidding of King Saul? What happened to the “Ten Lost Tribes” of Israel? Using in-depth comparisons with ancient texts, coupled with archeological and DNA findings, biblical scholar and genealogist Stan St.Clair attacks these and other difficult questions of historical significance. You may find some surprising conclusions.
