This is a very, very good trilogy! I borrowed the set from a friend and couldn't put it down! I finished the first one within a day, and the rest by the end of the week. They are very accurate and give a great idea of what things would've been like back in early Bible times. They really make learning about the Bible more interesting. Although some of the characters are fictional (as far as we know) there are many original characters such as Noah and his sons, and it's a lot of fun to see how the author ties everything together with the fictional and nonfictional characters. Very creative! I highly recommend these books to anyone!
