A Biblical Interpretation of World History

by Charles Kimball How does history work? Is it just a collection of names, places, and dates, or is there a formula for understanding an overall pattern? More importantly, do the events of history happen at random, or is there a guiding force behind them? You have probably heard theories of history that look for great men and women or underlying causes. Now we will look at the ultimate big picture and try to see the story of the world as God sees it. More than ten years in the making, this text will look at the overlying trends to determine why major events happened in the past. Special attention will be given to these four trends: The spread of civilization across the world in one thousand-year steps.
The most important attempts by man to build empires, from Babel to the great nations of today.
The origins and development of Greek thought and philosophy, also known as secular humanism.
The actions God has taken to intervene at key moments in history, both of a positive and negative nature. After that we will look at why Israel has been restored as a nation in our lifetime after nearly twenty-six hundred years of exile among the nations and what could happen to us in the near future. So come along for a ride through the ages, taking a new look at the greatest story to be told, and you wont think of history as a boring classroom lecture again.
