It is not often that a really good book comes our way, but Gascoigne’s Forgotten History is certainly one of them. The book takes in a very wide but detailed sweep of history, from the pre-Flood kings, through the post-Flood founding of organised paganism, and from the early history of Europe to the Reformation, and on to the founding of today’s European Union, which receives a most thoughtful and sobering treatment. The nine-page bibliography gives some idea of the range and depth of Gascoigne’s research. He never baulks at entering territory where most conventional (i.e. evolutionary) historians have always feared to tread. Nor does he allow the many complexities that he encountered to fog his vision. The book is clear and concise in its point, namely the way in which history - even pagan history - is carried along toward its final phase, the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The author points out how even pagan prophecies and expectations looked (and still look) toward a culmination of events that is strikingly similar to that laid out in the prophecies of the Bible. The best history books always look to the future, and Forgotten History does not disappoint. We have no hesitation in recommending it.
