pages are blank except for dates and a quote on each page
from someone who lived during that period. The pages will
be filled information and pictures that correspond with your
At first there are 500
years per page, but at 2,000BC it switches to 100 years per
page. This continues until 1400 AD when there are only 50
years per page. Twenty-five years per page are started in
the 1500's, until we reach the 1600's when we have only 20
years per page and from the 1700's and on there are only 10
years per page. This is of course done because we know so
much more of historical events in the later years.
examples of pages are below. Please bear in mind that the
pictures look much clearer than they are represented here.

on the other hand we do plan for the future. The date picked
to end the book is 2029, as the education for most students
using the book today will be completed by that time.

from the back of the book into the appropriate pages and also
writes titles of books that are read to go along with that
time period. There will not be pictures for everything studied,
and the 20th century pictures will have to be obtained elsewhere
because of copyright laws.
name for this book is "A Timeline for All Time".
This is an awesome thought and it is hoped that the student
will come to realize that although not everyone who has lived
will be "important" enough to be placed on their timeline;
everyone who has lived is on God's
timeline, and God's timeline never
