Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime
And departing, leave behind us,
Footprints on the Sands of Time.
-- Henry W. Longfellow
History serves as a chronological record of significant events. A treatise presenting systematically related records that explains events from time past. With this definition the scope of history is broad and includes every single piece of written work. To not except such a broad definition of history would to systematically exclude certain portions of man's humanity! It would be like cutting off one part of your body to keep only the better parts. It must not be done. BestBuysOnTheNet.com works daily with some of the most advanced forms of communications available but what we cherish deeply is the written word of time.

Religious books are spiritually important to those who read them as well as being valuable historical documents. Depending on your intellectual, emotional, and spiritual interest your collection will be determined by your particular likes. One religious book that peaked our interest is The Treasury of David: 7 Vol. Set (Authorized Ed.), by Spurgeon, C. H. H HC-Cloth. Funk & Wagnalls, NY (1881). In this volume set Spurgeon writes an original exposition of the Book of Psalms; a collection of illustrative extracts from the whole range of literature, a series of homiletical hints upon almost every verse, and lists of writers upon each Psalm. Paste-down spine titles (edges coming loose slightly on some). Feps and edges browning due to age. Vol. I-Psalm I to XXVI. Vol. II-Psalm XXVII to LII. Vol. III-Psalm LIII to LXXVIII, IV-Psalm LXXIX to CIII (2nd ed. ), V-CIV to CXVIII, . VI-Psalm CXIX to CXXIV, and VII-Psalm CXXV to CI.
Collecting history is a fascinating and rewarding experience. Taken lightly this may not be the case but if you understand the important relevance of why the passing of time occurred the way it did then it will unveil the key to understanding what lies ahead for you and I. Only fools fail to understand the past. A collection of world history books would not be complete with at least one or a dozen books on Israel. The importance of Israel in the midst of world history, culture, politics, religion, and business is undeniable.
One book to start your Israel collection is A History of Israel by Bright, John 3d ed. Hardcover. Westminster Press, Philadelphia (c1981.). Unsurpassed for nearly half a century, and now with a new introduction and appendix by William P. Brown, Bright's A History of Israel will continue to be a standard for a new generation of students of the Old Testament. The condition of the book is very good. An ex-librarian, very good dust jacket; includes bibliographical references and indexes. 511 p. , 16 leaves of plates: maps; 25 cm.
