Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
This coffee-table-style hardcover gives a timeline of unusual scientific and archaeological finds. 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.

My Review:
Brilliant is a coffee-table style book that looks at 51 evidences--from the huge, perfectly fitted stones used by many ancient cultures to brain surgery to earthquake detectors--which show that ancient man was more intelligent and technologically advanced than we may assume. He uses a Biblical timeline on the bottom of the page to show when in time the evidence was probably created and a map to show where it was found.

The book is full of colorful pictures of the evidence. The text gave a good description of the evidence and what it tells us about ancient humans. I think this would be a great book for all Christian tweens, teens, and adults, but especially those interested in history or ancient cultures.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
