Brilliant is a beautifully illustrated full-color, sewn hardcover which ties history to Biblical truth. Each page of the 128 page book shows an artifact or example from some ancient culture demonstrating the inventiveness, intelligence, or Biblical knowledge of ancient mankind. Every page also prominently features a timeline tying the artifact featured on that page to a 6000 year Biblical timeline and shows how ancient cultures and Biblical events fit into world history. This book ties biblical truth to true world history like no other book reinforces the reality that the Bible provides a true history of all of reality.
This coffee-table-sized hardcover uses a timeline of scientific and archaeological facts to validate that the Creation account of the Bible is accurate. Cultures throughout the world are filled with mysteries which do not fit the pervasive evolutionary time-frame, but make perfect sense if the Biblical timeline of history is accepted. Brilliant takes the Bible seriously and every page contains an artifact from some ancient culture testifying to the reality of these true events of history.
Every two-page spread is a different topic filled with revelations showing that the biblical timeline is correct and the millions-of-years evolutionary time-frame could not possibly be true. For instance:
In general, Christians are woefully ignorant of how to fit the ice age, ape-men, archeological discoveries, continental plate tectonics, and/or ancient Chinese/Egyptian/Peruvian/and other cultures into a real Biblical timeline. Brilliant shows how all these things not only logically fit a Biblical perspective but confirm its accuracy while contradicting the evolutionary perspective.
