Before the flood : the biblical flood as a real event and how it changed the course of civilization by Ian Wilson( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Biblical flood described in Genesis has long been a subject of fascination and speculation. In the 19th century the English archbishop James Ussher established it as having happened in the year 2348 B.C., calculating what was then taken as the age of the earth and working backward through the entire series of Biblical "begats." Proof of the flood, which is an element of so many creation myths, began in earnest when archaeology started connecting physical evidence with Biblical story. As historian Ian Wilson reveals in this new book, evidence of a catastrophic event has been building steadily, culminating in the work of William Ryan and Walter Pitman. Several years ago Ryan and Pitman had posited that around 5600 BC there had been an inundation in the Black Sea of such proportions that it turned the freshwater lake into a saltwater lake by connecting it to the Mediterranean. Were that true, they estimated that there would be signs of civilization 300 feet below the surface of the Black Sea. In September 2000, using his famous underwater equipment, Robert Ballard explored parts of the Black Sea near the Turkish shore and found the remains of wood houses. There had been a flood that destroyed everything around it for hundreds of miles, killing tens of thousands of people. Exploring all the archeological evidence, Wilson explains how the Black Sea flood and the Biblical flood have to be connected. In particular, Wilson argues that the center of the civilized world was further to the West than previously thought-not in Egypt or Mesopotamia but in what is today Northern Turkey. The earliest, antediluvian civilizations may have migrated east into those places we have come to call the cradles of civilization, forced by the Black Sea flood to create new settlements

The Bible is history by Ian Wilson( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The question of whether the Bible contains any element of historical truth has been the cause of one of the most divisive and compelling debates of this century. For modern churchmen and Jewish scholars the text of the Book of Books is seen as an amalgam of myth, mistakes and misinterpretation, yet enshrining still a large substratum of fact. Wilson looks at the latest findings of eminent Biblical archaeologists and scholars in order to gain a crucial perspective on these arguments."--Jacket

Past lives : unlocking the secrets of our ancestors by Ian Wilson( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work, Ian Wilson shows how scientists have reconstructed the faces of our ancestors to give us a meaningful sense of what they looked like. Studies of bones and teeth can reveal much about each character's diet, which in turn sheds light on how they lived. Possessions found around the body can tells us even more about who these people were. Each of the four sections in the book contains a comprehensive introduction, allowing the reader to understand the historical context in which these people lived. Character by character, from prehistory to modern times, Ian Wilson's detective work and knowledge enables him to tell the very human stories of these past lives."--Jacket
Murder at Golgotha : revisiting the most famous crime scene in history by Ian Wilson( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Murder at Golgotha approaches Jesus' crucifixion from the perspective of a crime scene investigator: What do we know is fact? What can be historically documented? What can we deduce may have happened?" "Taking the popular CSI television dramas as inspiration, Murder at Golgotha is a direct reaction to Mel Gibson's much-talked-about movie The Passion of the Christ. Ian Wilson analytically assesses what is known about Jesus' trial and crucifixion as well as where art and the movies have gone astray in depicting them. His investigatory materials include eyewitness testimonies (i.e., elements identifiable as such within the Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John gospels), archaeology, medical and forensic findings, Roman and Jewish history, and Christian relics, all of which Ian Wilson systematically deploys to throw new light on the most famous murder in history."--Back cover

Out of the midst of the fire : divine presence in Deuteronomy by Ian Wilson( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work challenges the widely-held assumption that Deuteronomy so emphasizes God's transcendence that it excludes divine immanence in the earthly sphere. It does so by examining a number of possible references to God's Presence in both the historical and legal sections of the book and concludes that the Deity is portrayed as bing present not only in heaven but also in battle, on the mountain (Horeb), and at the "chosen place." The author questions the view, popularized by von Rad, that in Deteronomy it is "not Yahweh himself who is present at the shrine, but only his name, " and succeeds in focusing attention on data relevant to the location of divine Presence in Deteronomy which has hitherto been consigned to the margins of the debate"--Page 4 of cover
