From the chaos of the Tower of Babel to the tragedy of the Babylonian captivity, Empires of the Bible tells the story of the ancient civilizations in the Old Testament. Using research conducted in Babylon and Egypt, this book includes many valuable and historical records inscribed in stone by the very men living in those ancient times. These records combined with Bible history of the same, are woven together in one connected story.Reprinted exactly from the 1904 original, this book also includes a series of 21 maps which trace the course of those empires. The unique design of this book will be found useful by every student, either of the Bible or history."History, therefore, with its dusty and moldering pages, is to us a sacred a volume as the book of nature; because history properly studied is truly the study of the grand purposes of God with men and nations." - Empires of the Bible
