I absolutely love history. And there is no greater source of WHY history happened (not just "what" happened) than our Bible. Even secular and atheist historians agree that the Bible is the most accurate source of ancient history that we have. All of Archaeology, Science and History (prophecy) support this.
For this reason, I really enjoy William Federer, Victor Davis Hansen, the Heritage Foundation and Prager U, to name a few really good sources.
Keep reading your Bible, and God Bless!
