    The Sequence of Events in the Old Testament is presented here for scholars, researchers and lovers of the Bible. The author began work on his set of detailed chronological charts and family trees during his exile in Siberia. It is an awe-inspiring achievement, born our of the author's great love for the subject, his dogged persistence and his painstaking devotion to his task, despite the difficulties of time and place. This is a unique work, in that it presents important Biblical dates graphically. Both educationally, and with regard to tradition, this work is suitable for today's sophisticated society. It is based entirely on reliable sources, and cites the greatest traditional commentators. No personal interpretations have been made except to emphasize interesting correlations and historical parallels.

    The Sequence of Events in the Old Testament has won much praise from rabbis and students of the Bible, both in Israel and abroad. This book was originally written in Hebrew and has been published in Israel in five editions, over a period of four years. We are confident that this English edition will be of great service and value to lovers of the Bible around the world.


    About the Author:
    Eliezer Shulman was born in Bessarabia in 1923. At the age of 16, he planned to immigrate to Israel on an "illegal" immigrant convoy, but was prevented from carrying out his plans by the outbreak of World War II. Instead of coming to Israel, he was exiled to Siberia. It was only in 1975 that Shulman was allowed to leave Siberia with his family to settle in Israel.
    In Siberia, Shulman began to work as a blacksmith, then as a tractor driver, and railway worker, a senior engineer, and finally the manager of a planning department.
    Throughout his long years in exile, Shulman did not give up his Jewish national values. He taught Hebrew, Bible, Jewish History, and Zionism to his two Siberian-born daughters. Father and daughters secretly engaged in the teaching of Hebrew, and infused many students with a Jewish-national consciousness. They translated Israeli songs into Russian, and helped create an Israeli atmosphere in the remote, cold North.
    In order to teach and examine the Bible, Shulman developed a graphic chronology and genealogy of the Pentateuch. This monumental work details the major characters and events mentioned in the Bible.


    Praise for The Sequence of Events in the Old Testament:
