It is time to decide whether the Scriptures of the three monotheistic religions born in the Middle East narrate valid history. Minimalists often dismiss Scripture in favor of secular source guides; resultantly, those who study ancient history suffer from the lack of truth and errant dates. A valuable historic timeline exists in Scripture! For centuries, many Bible translations relied on pieces of that timeline; but it suddenly disappeared from the spotlight. Achad-Ankh-Quest has revived Scripture's timeline, confirming its validity through a compilation of historic data found from secular sources. The unnamed Pharaohs of Scripture receive names and dates; their political atmospheres correspond to Scripture's narratives. Some archaeologists have searched for evidence confirming the dates of such things as the Exodus, to no avail. Only through Scripture's timeline does ancient history become clearer. Achad-Ankh-Quest will serve as a valuable resource for most anyone-layperson or scholar-if believed and utilized. Artist, Photographer, and Poet: Lia D is a true Renaissance woman. Her self-taught knowledge consists of numerous subjects, including Theology and Egyptology. Her eclectic work includes poetry anthologies, editorial pieces for local newspapers, and newspapers articles featuring her illustrations. Lia illustrated church newsletters, culminating in a stained-glass window arrangement glorifying Jesus Christ. Yet she believes, "God designs every good thing." Loving Scripture, photography, travel, and research, Lia ventured to the Holy Land many times. Lia or "Bringer of Good News" strongly encourages historians to reexamine the established history of ancient Egypt based on her decades of extensive research.

Significant interest has always existed about the origin of Classic Greek culture, but despite the long-standing attention, scholars continue to disagree on where this amazing civilization got its start. The Mycenaeans were the earliest Greek-speaking people on the mainland, but the country entered a Dark Age following the end of the Trojan War, and in the Archaic Age which followed, the fundamentals of Greek political and literary thought suddenly emerged, without a clear source of derivation. Historians have sometimes given credit to the Egyptians, Phoenicians, or other Eastern civilizations for this evolution, but no serious consideration has been given to the ancient Hebrews, despite the fact that the Exodus from Egypt took place during the Late Bronze Age, when Mycenae was at its peak of influence in the Mediterranean Basin. In Was Achilles a Jew? Hebraic Origins to Greek Civilization, Dr. Larry Milner argues that a group of Hebrews devoted to the traditions of the patriarchs left the Exodus following the parricidal reprisals instituted by Moses during the modification of Judaism into a monotheistic faith, and migrated to Mycenae, where they became immersed into Mycenaean culture, taking part in the Trojan War. His analysis provides the most persuasive argument to date about where the Eastern influence in Greece was generated.
