B. J. Chapman has written The First Two Thousand Years out of heartfelt concern that the church would interpret God's Word literally and trust it absolutely. His exposition of the days of creation, the marriage union, the Fall of man, sin's curse upon all generations, the worldwide Flood, and many other foundational events of human history are crucial for the Bible student to understand. B. J. Chapman shows how the first two thousand years of human history has irrefutably influenced all future ages of human history. His book is very readable and interestingly written with helpful information leading to further study provided throughout. Oli G. Jacobsen Chairman New Tribes Mission International Ministries B.J. Chapman has written a very practical and informative exposition of the first eleven chapters of Genesis and the first two thousand years of human history. He clearly shows how the first eleven chapters of Holy Scripture set the stage for a coming Redeemer. The battle for truth in our present day is presented in the light of departure from the truth as revealed in God's Word. This is a good "read" and solid exposition rolled into one.
