Considered not only a classic work of literature, but also esteemed for its preciseness and accuracy, The Annals of the World has not been published in the English language since the 17th century. Almost completely inaccessible to the public for three centuries, this book is a virtual historical encyclopedia with information and footnotes to history that otherwise would have been lost forever.

Covering history from the beginning through the first century A.D., Ussher relates both famous accounts and little known events in the lives of the famous and infamous including pharaohs, Caesars, kings, conquerors, thieves, pirates, and murderers. He tells of the rise and fall of great and not-so-great nations and gives accounts of the events that shaped the world.

As a historical work, Ussher's Annals of the Worldis a must-have for libraries of all sizes. Universities, public and private schools, professors, independent scholars, and pastors will find a treasure-trove of material previously unavailable.

My new #1 theological reference book

User Review  - Pastor Marc -

Received my James Ussher with CD. The CD is a great aid along with the book. I put down my Matthew Henry, and started reading Ussher, and looks like I can't stop! I'll have to get back to Matthew Henry when I finish James Ussher now. Read full review

A very important resource.

About the author (2003)

Highly educated and well-traveled, Archbishop James Ussher set out in 1650 on what would be a five-year task to write a history of the world. Ussher left his native Ireland and traveled Europe, seeking historical documents and other writings to aid in his research. Many of the source texts used by him have been destroyed through the centuries, while Ussher’s book still contains events otherwise lost forever. A meticulous researcher, compiler and Bible scholar, Ussher used the date of Nebuchadnezzar as a historical reference point, and traced the biblical genealogies backward from there to arrive at a date for creation — not millions of years ago, but only a few thousand. He then set his collection of world events and biblical events in chronological order, and The Annals of the World is the remarkable result. For years, Ussher’s timeline was used in King James Versions of the Bible as a reference for the events there. Ussher was one of the greatest scholars and theologians of his time, and rose to prominence within the Church of Ireland at a very young age. Ussher had a great love of books as well as history,  and was known for his extensive library, which went on to form the core of the famous library at Trinity College in Dublin.
