With this book Stephen Hardy took a fresh approach to writing a book. A Four Thousand Year Glimpse is written by a student for students. Giving a beginning student a foot hold, at the same time giving a seasoned student a quick reference and read. A treasure for all.
You took a new approach to an old subject, where did you come up with the idea for your book?
Oddly enough when I started writing this work I wasn't writing a book. I had collected a lot of notes from my personal study and was organizing them.
I wasn't writing a book, I was developing a system to make my notes accessible. About halfway through I realized, with help from a couple people pointing it out, I was doing something other people could use.
Quite literally, this book was written by a student for students.
Your book is quick and to the point, no room for your personal thoughts, is there anything you wish you could have added?
Actually there is. I want everyone to learn more of the eternal principles taught in the bible.
I had a life changing experience, a spiritual experience, writing this book. I spent a lot of time going through the events and books trying to understand the events that happened. I want everyone to experience it.
The events that happened in the bible span over a four thousand year span. But the effects of those events are just as if they happened today.
Capturing the essence of the Bible A Four Thousand Year Glimpse makes available the treasures in the Old and New Testaments.
In a glimpse (ie. I Samuel 17:1-51 David and Goliath, and Acts 9:1-6 The road to Damascus). This book opens the Bible to new student, while the more experienced reader holds a great key to find the passage you need when you need it.
