'In this book Professor Thiele has given us the solution to the puzzle. He has discovered the basic methods employed by the early Hebrew scribes in calculating and recording dates, and by following these methods he has produced a pattern of Hebrew chronology that not only agrees with the Biblical account but also with the historical dates obtained from the records of Israel's neighbors. This very considerable achievement has made Professor Thiele's work the basis of all subsequent investigation in this field, and the standard authority on the subject.'
