 The Prolonged Struggle of Supernatural Forces for Creation’s Loyalty as Revealed In— 

Vol. I.—Adam and Eve Through King David’s Reign — Patriarchs and Prophets  

Heritage Edition—Some 110 Century-Old Illustrations, 658 pages. 

This volume gives the account of the beginning of this world, of mankind, and of the evil so prevalent today. Starting with creation week with the founding of God’s holy day as a memorial of His creative power, this volume recounts the struggle of mankind as buffeted by the forces of evil through the awesome world-wide flood, the lives of the patriarchs, the slavery of Israel in Egypt, their miraculous deliverance and establishment as God’s chosen people entrusted with His eternal commandments in the Promised Land down through the reign of king David.

This edition of this widely translated and distributed book is an interactive PDF designed primarily for download and use in Adobe Reader (free software on the internet) with many features—highlighting, underlining, word and phrase search, sticky notes, select, copy, paste, print, and electronic links to chapters, pages, and illustrations.
I have found this book very informative as well as easy and enjoyable to use.
