James Ussher was a scholar of honor, and one of history’s most famous and well-respected historians. He devoted himself wholly to the defense of the Christian Faith. Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1581, this highly educated, well-traveled historian devoted years to writing the history of the world from creation to A.D. 70. Originally published in Latin in the 1650s, Ussher’s masterpiece is not only a timeless treasure, but a literary classic.
Ussher is best known for his discovery of the creation of the world by God, in what he believed was October 23rd, 4004 B.C.
