The Xenophile Historian

A Biblical Interpretation Of World History

Book Cover

From 1984 to 2005 I taught a general world history course for my church, and in 1997 I was asked by my pastor to write a text to go with it. Most of the work was done by 2000, but then I got distracted by other events, and had a little trouble finding a publisher, so it wasn't published until 2008. Still, when I did the final proofreading, I only had to make a few slight changes to the text to keep it up to date. With all that has happened since the 1990s, especially the September 11 terrorist attacks, how many other history books can make the same claim?

Anyway, you can order the book by clicking on this link: , or by clicking on the book cover above.

(Update: The book is now available on, too!)

If you want read a sample of my work, here is Chapter 1 from the text. The footnotes and pictures were moved to the back of the book by the publisher, but otherwise everything is the same.
