The book of Genesis, post-flood to the death of Joseph, is the ice age. Michael Oard has done extensive work demonstrating that there was a single ice age immediately after the flood lasting about seven hundred years. For an introduction to this concept, the book Frozen In Time is available without charge as a series of .pdf documents on the answersingenesis.com website.
We wrote detailed, documented works on the establishment of religion, secular humanism, science, the results of secular humanism as an establishment of religion, creation, the origin of evil, the flood and the ice age. Critics complained that is was too long, too difficult to read, too many sources. So I removed all of the documentation, repetition, and restatement for clarity. No explanations for unusual words, nothing but basic assertions. This book is only about sixty pages and is called Disestablish.
To some critics, it is still too difficult to read. So I wrote a series of novels about the Hittites. The first book begins just after the fall of the tower of Babel, and the Hittites cannot comprehend a foreign language. Abraham is a friend of Ephron. Sarah and Hagar are friends of Shelometh. Biblical events are woven into the story line.
The series shows a population explosion, rapid advances in technology, knowledge of world wide events, the ability to travel great distances, wars, the introduction of idolatry, the consequences of idolatry, and long life spans.
It describes tools, food, eating habits, clothing, travel, domestic animals, marriage customs, jewelery, slavery, trade, relationships between cities and cultures, money, hunting, and sailing.
One of the characters talks about his visit to Noah. Death is rare in the first three books. Death is part of warfare in the fourth book, but otherwise uncommon. Death is common in the fifth book, with most of the characters introduced in the first three books dying. Children are born to parents in the fifth book who were born in the fourth book.
There are complex relationships between brothers and sisters and empires. Slaves are as important as royalty. Kings make mistakes. Slaves save empires. Most of the characters are neither royalty nor slaves.
The setting is primarily Hattusha and Hebron. However, it ranges from the first cataract of the Nile, to Troy, to the Black Sea to the Tigris River, to Damascus. Building by stone is detailed, Life an a Phoenician ship is described, but most of the time they live either in a city or a tent.
The standard method of transportation was walking, though riding a camel or a horse was common. During the course of these stories, the wagon and chariot are invented, improved and used in warfare. Ships were common. Writing predates this series. However, at the beginning, writing was very difficult and almost unknown. By the end of the fifth book, reading is common, almost universal.
But the primary purpose was to make the stories interesting. Because, if no one reads them, they do not teach.
