Here, contained in one volume, is the fascinating account of creation, the beginning of human history, the rise of civilizations, the organization of the Kingdom of God on earth and its subsequent history. This is a book of five parts: Book of Creation, Book of Beginnings, Book of the Exodus, Book of the Law and Book of the Kingdom.
Author Howard B. Rand attempts to lay a foundation of the Scriptural knowledge upon which all accurate research must rest. As its title suggests, it deals with first beginnings: the preparation of the earth for the habitation of mankind; the beginning of human governments; the beginning of the Race of the Book; the beginning of the Kingdom of God at Mount Sinai. Rand shows that earlier books of the Bible are basically a study in origins and all the essential background they provide is presented here in a verse-by-verse exposition in an easily-read style.
