About the Book

500 Year Journey: From Babylon to Bethlehem will guide readers through history and scripture, traversing a path from the days of Daniel to the birth of Christ. This is a completely different approach than the typical, “What planetary configuration or bright star did the magi see?” approach, and the true miracle will appear at the end of the journey.

Quotes from 500 Year Journey

Christianity is not founded on esoteric philosophies or mystical visions of the divine, but on the real life, tough, gritty, leathery, unidealized truth.

Chapter 1

The God of the universe, the Creator of heaven and earth, the all-powerful and most merciful Lord God Almighty who with a whisper could wipe us all out of existence, chose instead to humble himself and to become quietly, gently, one of us. Why? To buy us back from the indignity and shame of sin.
