From Rolf Furuli:
I have been absorbed with the matter of chronology in recent
I have spoken with brothers from several branch offices who are
concerned about the matter; it seems that this is a principal area
of attack by our enemies these days. I have for several years
gathered chronological data, and the point was reached a few
weeks ago when I could make a synthesis of all the results
obtained so far, and compare them with historical data. I was
very eager to see where the material would lead, and I became
very much impressed by the results, because of the remarkable
fit of the data with our own chronology.
The original purpose with the book was to show the possibility of
alternative interpretations of chronological matters, compared to
the interpretations of the accepted chronology. However, I realize
that not only has this goal been achieved, but we have a strong
case in favor of our chronology regarding 455 and against the
Jerusalem's fall in 587.
I therefore attach a review of the book (one Word document and
one pdf file) that you are free to send to anyone you deem fit. I
have decided to publish the book through my own small firm,
which has the rights of publishing books. I have not sought
another publisher for two reasons, 1) it takes time to review a
manuscript in order to decide publication, and I see the need to
get the material out quickly, 2) A publisher would probably ask
me to remove some material for commercial reasons, (the book
is quite detailed some places), something I don't want. This
means that the only way to get the English version, is by ordering
it from Norway. We have a very fine University library in Oslo, and
I have gathered information from thousands of cuneiform
documents, but in some cases some old studies are absent
from the library. So I need some help by brothers who live
close to big libraries to check some particular material. I will
return to that.
My prayer is that the Chronology book may help firm brothers to
be able to defend the truth better, and that someone who are on
the point of succumbing to enemy propaganda may be snatched
out of the fire (Jude 1:23).
See whet your appetite for this, see
for html file, and I will post the Word Document in the files
section right after this post.
