Many have tried to tell Bible stories as historical fiction. But I have attempted to tell the entire story of the universe, starting with the Bible and integrating history and chronology, legend, and ancient Talmudic tradition, along with a good deal of speculation. My story begins before time, and continues past the ages of time into eternity. It is an adult work, for some of mankind's descent into depravity cannot be sanitized. But it is also a fun work, as I bounce around from our perspective up to the heavenly realms and even down into hell itself. My purpose was not just to tell the story, but also to teach wisdom and to clarify the nature and character of God. I trust each reader will grow in relationship to the God of infinite love, as I have grown in the writing. Volume Four begins with the Kingdom of Judah sinking into idolatry under young King Ahaz, son of good King Jotham, who was blind to his son's idolatry. It carries the story clear through the Assyrian conquest of northern Israel, the Babylonian conquest of Judah, the Persian Empire, the Macedonian Greek Empire, the Maccabees, and the Roman Empire, ending just before the coming of Messiah to Earth.
