A very important resource.User Review - Christianbook.com
This is an excellent product, and should be in every Christians library. It is primarily and most obviously useful in helping the student of scripture develop an understanding of the big picture of scripture. Also and equally important, studying this book or just routinely referring to it will strengthen the Christians belief in the inerrancy of scripture by showing us how to understand and defend the genealogies and chronologies therein. Scripture is constantly under attack from within the church and from without. It is a christian duty to be skilled in handling the scriptures. Ussher's Annals of the world is a valuable tool in the Christian library. The husband and wife who put this version together did such a good job on this important project.

A magnificent book. I started in the era just before Christ, finishing to the end. Then I started from the beginning until I finished the rest. This is work is a great accomplishment not only on the part of Ussher, but of the editor as well. I intend to write a more in-depth article later, but I wanted for now to just... mention that I have a discussion group for any of those interested in discussing this book, Ussher in general, or anything related: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=191342191728&ref=mf
