THE DEBATE OVER THE LIFE OF NIMROD IS SETTLED IN PART BY LOOKING AT THE VARIATIONS IN THE ACCOUNTS REGARDING HIS DEATH. REMEMBER: THE BIBLE ONLY MENTIONS THE NAME OF NIMROD IN 4 PLACES (TWICE IN GENESIS, ONCE IN 1 CHRONICLES AND ONCE IN MICAH). 3 OF THE 4 VERSES ARE ESSENTIALLY THE SAME.

FINALLY, the book is published and available. For now, it’s the printed version only (Kindle is about one month, in time for the 4th of July). The format is 8.5″ by 11″. I had to make the difficult decision to go with a larger format. The reason, there are over 90 photographs and charts, many with tiny details you’ll want to see. This would only be plain to see in the larger format. (I’ll eventually have to redo RTB-Part 1 to the same size format, when I do an … Read More
