One of the most remarkable works of history

Mocked when evolutionary theories became vogue in the 19th century, Archbishop James Ussher was a well-respected and important scholar of ancient history during the early 17th century. A meticulous researcher and compiler, Ussher correlated the events in Genesis with secular human history. His chronology was included in various versions of the Bible from the early 1700s until very recently. Today, however, few Bible publishers include Ussher’s dates because they conflict with the popular belief in “millions of years,” which is based on evolutionary assumptions.

A highly respected scholar and theologian, still widely studied today, Ussher carefully studied the books of the Bible and an impressive array of historical documents (many lost to time or no longer available for study) to produce the unparalleled academic work known as The Annals of the World.

  • Over 10,500 footnotes have been updated to reference works in the Loeb Classical Library by Harvard Press
  • Over 2,500 citations from the Bible and the Apocrypha
  • Ussher’s original citations have been checked against the latest textual scholarship

Considered not only a literary classic, but also a valuable reference, The Annals of the World was so highly regarded for its preciseness that its time-line was included in the margins of many King James Bibles throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, reminding readers that the earth is only around 6,000 year old. As evolutionary beliefs—especially the belief in long ages for the earth—took root in the 20th century, Ussher’s sound scholarship faded from Bibles. This is a reflection of the church’s compromise with Darwinism.

As a historical work, Ussher’s Annals of the World is a must-have for libraries of all sizes. Universities, public and private schools, professors, scholars and pastors will find a treasure-trove of material previously unavailable. Any reader will enjoy the human-interest stories from the original historical documents cited by Ussher. This is more than just a book about history—it’s a history-maker!
