On the Shores of the Great Sea by  M. B. Synge



Back Matter


[201] IT will be noted that the Bible chronology has been used in this book, and that any mention of Egyptian chronology has been purposely omitted, for the reason that it is a subject under deep discussion, and that no satisfactory conclusion has yet been arrived at. See article on Chronology in 'Bible Treasury.'

A few books are here suggested as a help to this period—from the days of Abraham to the Birth of Christ.
