The Origins And Empire Of Ancient Israel
A fresh look at the early history of Israel from the time of Abraham to King Solomon, with special emphasis on the little-known and immensely important events that helped to shape our modern world. Here is the untold story of Israel's sojourn in Egypt and evidence that God's People visited distant lands in Europe and America in ancient times. Author Steven Collins retells the story of the Book of Genesis and the lives of the Patriarchs with a keen insight into the meaning of interesting clues that other authors have missed. This is not just a rehash of history, but a reanalysis of a foundational book of Holy Scripture in the light of subsequent events and Bible prophecy. In addition to all of that, it is quite a good read!
The central theme of this book is the Biblical covenant which God made with the Patriarchs and their descendants. This included the Biblical promise of numerous descendants who would build powerful, wealthy nations. This exciting story is told with the aid of over 100 maps, charts, and illustrations; 20 pages of comprehensive indexes. Beautiful original cover artwork depicts Jacob's prophetic blessing found in Genesis chapter 48. Soft cover 6x9 inches, 296 pages (280+ xiv). A book you will treasure!

Israel's Lost Empires
Was ancient Israel a landlocked nation or a seacoast trading empire? In this fascinating study, historian Steven M. Collins details the little-known story of Israel's ancient empires. Not only did King David's land empire stretch clear across the Mideast to Mesopotamia, but Israel boasted a navy which merged with and dominated the famed Phoenicians. Hebrew ships plied the Mediterranean, establishing colonies along the European and North African coasts. Israel's influence in the ancient city-state of Carthage has never before been so thoroughly documented, nor her definite presence in early Britain. New evidence is presented also suggesting that her ships visited the North American continent, as well. This study plows much new ground in ancient history.
Mr. Collins' knack for patient research and logical deduction is only exceeded by a lively and riveting writing style that will surely hold the reader's attention to the last page. Over 100 maps and illustrations complement this unique study! Soft cover 6 x 9 inches, 296 pages (280+ xvi), beautiful original color artwork on front and back covers. Very well researched with 27 pages of indexes included. (Scripture, Persons, Places, Subjects) This book continues the exciting story which began with his previous book, "The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel," which is also available from us.

Parthia: The Forgotten Ancient Superpower And Its Role In Biblical History
Although little-known to modern readers, the ancient kingdom of Parthia played a key role in historical and Biblical events. It boasted one of the greatest kingdoms of the ancient world, and was the one empire that Rome actually feared. Just decades before the birth of Christ, its armies drove the Romans completely out of Palestine, Syria and Asia Minor, forcing the reigning King Herod to flee for his life. Who were the Parthians? In this book, exciting new research is presented proving a Semitic-Israelite connection and even a link to King David within the Parthian royal family. The names of Israelite tribes are also in evidence within the Parthian Empire. Another surprise: The cover of the book shows a cutaway diagram of an ancient Parthian direct current battery. A number of these batteries have been found, and this book documents the sensational discovery of electricity by the Parthians and examines its possible ancient uses.
Some of the events of Jesus Christ’s life become more understandable when they are examined in light of the politics that prevailed between Rome and Parthia at that time. One group of Parthian elites that chose Parthia’s emperors was called the "Magi" or "Wise Men." A delegation of these high Parthian officials worshipped the young Jesus. You will enjoy the fascinating account of this mighty, but little-known empire that played an important role in the Biblical story! (Full color cover, over 100 maps and illustrations, 6 x 9 inches, 256 pages + xvi; 16 pages of indexes: persons, places, Scriptures.)

EXCERPT from the book, PARTHIA, by Steven M. Collins, Chapter 3, Pages 123-151
Israel's Tribes Today
This fourth book of a series, Israel’s Tribes Today, identifies the modern locations of the tribes of Israel, and it examines the migrations that brought them to their current locations. Modern world geopolitics will be seen in an entirely new light as a result.
Most efforts to locate the "lost" House of Israel have failed because of erroneous assumptions. Searchers assume that the supposedly "lost" ten tribes of Israel would be found in isolated little bands of people. However, the first chapter of Hosea and other Biblical prophecies foretold that the nations of the ten tribes would be found among the wealthy and powerful nations with large populations!
This book identifies the modern House of Israel as those nations descending from the Goths, Saxons, Germans and related peoples who migrated into Europe from Asia after the fall of Parthia and Scythia. They have enjoyed national prominence, power, and prosperity as the primary recipients of the divine "birthright" blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant. Many nations have Israelite roots, in whole or in part. Not only did they retain Semitic-Israelite names and customs, but many of the tribal and clan names of the ten tribes of Israel are found among them. This book presents exciting new research and over 140 maps, charts, and illustrations to provide convincing evidence concerning the Israelite origin of large modern nations.
The final portion of this book utilizes Biblical prophecies about the tribes of Israel, as well as evidence from secular history, to identify the descendants of each tribe in the modern world. Readers may marvel at how specifically the prophecies have been fulfilled among modern nations, and that these nations even now enjoy the promised blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant. With the substantial body of evidence laid out in this book, their Israelite origin and character is impossible to miss.
This book series expands upon Mr. Collins first book, The “Lost” Ten Tribes of Israel…Found! and reveals much new information about the tribes of Israel. They are fully indexed and contain a large number of photographs, illustrations, narratives and maps not in Mr. Collins’ first book. This new book is 6x9 inches and 312 pages (296+xvi) with a full-color cover and over 140 illustrations!

Back "In Print" as an e-book!
My first book, The "Lost" Ten Tribes of Israel...Found, has been out-of-print for a considerable period of time, and many people have asked for copies of it. Due to public demand, this book is now again available for purchase as an e-book, and it is being made available at half the price of the original printed book! The original book cost $25 ($20 for the book and $5 for shipping fees). The e-book can be downloaded for a cost of only $12.99. This is the original book on which the four newer books on the history of the tribes of Israel were based.
This is the same book as was originally published in a printed version, but it has been reformatted for computer screens, and made more readable with larger print size, wider margins, etc. Due to the reformatting, it is now 628 pages of well-documented information on the history of the ten tribes of Israel from the time of King David through the time of the Divided Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, the new empires and kingdoms founded by the tribes of Israel during their migrations and their locations among the modern nations! This book also includes much information about the presence of the Israelites in ancient North America as well as segments about the migrations and modern locations of the ancient Assyrians.
