R. Frederick Riddle

Author R. Frederick Riddleabout this book: The Rise of Shem is the second in the series called The World That Was. Beginning where Perished left off as the Flood waters destroyed the Old World, Shem traces the history of mankind from Ararat to Haran.

This series sprang from my own Bible studies. While reading the book of Genesis I realized that, from a writer's point of view, it was more like an outline or synopsis than a detailed story. From that moment I began constructing the stories within the overall story. It is the story that the Bible doesn't tell you.

Readers tell me that my books bring the Bible alive. Bible characters and Bible events stand out in such a way that the readers "see" them as never before!

Using the Bible along with other secular books and the Internet I spent a great deal of time researching. It took between 1 1/2 years and 2 years of research and writing to get the book ready for publication. The cover was provided by the publisher although I suggested something along that line and actually approved it. It reflects my belief and the theme of the Bible that Shem was used of God to both record an important portion of the Word of God and to be prepared for a future event (next book).

It is my hope and prayer that readers find this book enjoyable and that it causes them to appreciate the Bible more than ever.
