The Fourth Thousand Years

By W. Cleon Skousen

Synopsis: The third in a series of three books about the the history of the world as related in the scriptures, The Fourth Thousand Years and the previous two volumes are veritable masterpieces that retell the story of mankind in a way that is strictly faithful to the scriptures. This volume covers the reign of King David up to but not including his Divine descendant, Jesus Christ.

Strong Points: A fascinating read that puts things into a very interesting perspective. W. Cleon Skousen had a gift for making the Old Testament readable and interesting, even in places where it might not seem so. There are many points in the book which bring up concepts that a reader of the scriptures likely missed. The best part is that it brings the scriptures to life for the reader while staying very faithful to the scriptural text.

Weak Points: This is the longest book in the series. While it is full of intriguing stories and puts the history in an easily understandable layout for the reader, the subject matter of the fourth thousand years of the world was not found by me to be quite as exciting perhaps as The First 2,000 Years. But still a very excellent book.

Interesting: 4.4/5

Must Read: 2.9/5

Overall: 4.8/5
