Embark upon a fantastic journey of discovery that will transform your understanding of God’s faithfulness

In Our Darkest Hour

A Light of Hope

What people from all walks of life are saying about Tales of Forever

“This book feeds the hungry heart like no other… It confirms God’s faithfulness, and diminishes the doubt and confusion that have for so long plagued mankind.”

“A genuine game changer in the history of the interpretation of The Bible.”

“Destined to be used as a textbook by future generations of truth seekers.”

“A brilliant masterpiece… A treasure for the ages and a gift from God.”

In humanity’s darkest hour, the God of The Bible uttered His most pivotal promise to Adam and Eve, to their children, to their descendants, to us. And although this promise was of the utmost importance, as so often happens in the history of God’s revelation, a knowledge of this primordial promise was obscured over time and nearly lost to history forever. This book, Tales of Forever, is the story of that promise, and the marvelous way that, no matter how hard the forces of darkness sought to eclipse a knowledge of this promise, the light of hope it held out to humanity could never be fully extinguished.

Now, you can discover the truth about the most important promise God has ever made to humanity; you can embark upon a fantastic journey of discovery, in Tales of Forever: The Unfolding Drama of God’s Hidden Hand in History.

The only question that remains is: Will you?

The history of our world reveals evidence of a remarkable drama of God’s control and faithfulness, a drama played out for all to see, yet ironically, one that is literally hidden in plain sight. Weaving a tapestry of the ages, composed of Christendom’s most sacred people, events, and artifacts, Tales of Forever sets out to describe that drama.

Editorial Reviews

I have studied in four seminaries and before that, a leading Christian college, yet never was I introduced to any of the material W. Kent Smith has brought forth here in Tales of Forever, a work that sheds light on long-lost truths that the majority of modern Christians know nothing about. God has preserved many things concerning His purposes as well as His indelible fingerprints on history. This book sets out to tell the story of those purposes and of those fingerprints.

My initial interest in The Tales was due to my research into a 5,500-year messianic prophecy that I become aware of while studying the Early Church and The Septuagint, the Greek translation of The Old Testament used by 2nd Temple Judaism and the Early Church. Known as “the prophecy of the Great Five and a Half Days,” this messianic prophecy is certainly the greatest promise that God ever gave to mankind. According to this prophecy, given to Adam and Eve when they were expelled from Eden, the Messiah would come to Earth to rescue humanity after 5,500 years.

In addition to my interest concerning this prophecy, I was struck by several questions about 2nd Temple Judaism: What motivated the rabbis in the late first and early second century when they “canonized” The Hebrew Bible? Why did The Septuagint version of The Old Testament have different books from the Masoretic Text? And why were so many previously accepted texts, such as The First Book of Enoch, completely ignored and excluded? I knew that earlier Jews had had a broader canon of Scripture than the one that the rabbis settled upon at Jamnia, but in many cases, I didn’t realize how important these “excluded" books were to understanding so many of our best-known Bible stories. Kent’s book picks up these themes and digs even deeper, with particular focus upon the 5,500-year prophecy.

According to the 5,500-year chronology of The Septuagint, the coming of Jesus perfectly fit the timing of this prophecy and was one of the reasons so many Jews came to believe He was the Messiah. At which time the rabbis proceeded to "tamper” with The Hebrew Bible at the end of the first century AD, rejecting The Septuagint, and then translating their “doctored” Old Testament into three new Greek versions for future Jewish use. Why? One of the main reasons was to obscure the 5,500-year prophecy in order to stop Jews from coming to Jesus as their Messiah.

Tales of Forever traces several other ways that God supernaturally preserved the record of this prophetic word for humanity. But sadly, due to the ongoing influence of Rabbinic Talmudic Judaism and the unfortunate influence of the likes of Jerome, many Christians not only remain in the dark about this 5,500-year prophecy but also end up dismissing the best extant sources of evidence for its veracity. When one removes such blinders and trusts the testimony of Early Church writers like Justin Martyr and Tertullian, we see, as Tales of Forever reveals, that God Himself protected arguably the most significant messianic prophecy of all time. You may not agree with all of the author's conclusions, but I assure you that your “traditions” will be challenged if you allow the evidence he presents through the narratives he tells to inspire you and your faith in the God of The Bible.

Just as First Enoch serves as an extensive commentary on Genesis 6, so too other so-called “apocryphal/pseudepigraphal” books shed much-needed light on aspects of the narratives of Adam and Eve, Abraham and Isaac, and other Old Testament patriarchs. Additionally, Kent introduces us to writings from The New Testament era that, while well known to the Medieval Church, have been ignored by modern-day Christians due to these works being deemed “non-canonical.” Most importantly, these works not only provide greater context to both Old and New Testament characters and events, but they also further testify to the critical importance of the 5,500-year prophecy.

To inspire millions, movies need to be made about The Tales. Following Kent’s lead as he depicts events in various works throughout this volume, I propose Enoch as the main character and narrator of one of the greatest stories that has yet to be filmed! Step aside Lord of the Rings!

As I told the author when we met, I believe that new evidence is forthcoming that will shed even more light on these issues and convince countless people that the things he contends are in fact true. Of course, only time will tell. But, until then, read Tales of Forever for yourself, and your fascination with God will grow, as will your trust in His promises.

For such a time as this…

A Preview

It is said The Bible contains more than three thousand promises that God has made to humanity. Many are conditional and require a response from the recipients before God keeps those promises, while many are kept unconditionally, regardless of whether the recipients cooperate in their fulfillment.

This is the story of one of those promises that God kept unconditionally, a promise made to Adam and his descendants that was to be the key to unlocking every other promise God would ever make to humanity. As it turns out, it is also a promise of God that involves some of the most overlooked aspects of biblical history. Why?

Because unbeknownst to most modern-day Christians living in the West, the men who recorded the events surrounding this fulfilled promise were quoting from the Greek translation of The Old Testament called The Septuagint. As a result, their understanding of biblical history was far different from ours today.

Case in point, the writers of The New Testament believed that the time from Adam to Christ represented a 5,500-year timeline, as opposed to the one inspired by the King James Version of The Bible, which depicts this time period as being some 4,000 years. Why does that matter?

It matters because this lesser-known timeline of 5,500 years, found in The Septuagint, does everything to confirm God’s control over history and faithfulness to His word while the traditional 4,000-year time frame does nothing but obscure and nullify another vitally important aspect concerning the most pivotal promise ever made and kept by God in history.

It is the story of this forgotten chapter of biblical history, then, that this book, Tales of Forever: The Unfolding Drama of God’s Hidden Hand in History, will seek to uncover and illuminate. In the telling of this tale of God’s primordial promise, known as the prophecy of the Great Five and a Half Days, the reader will rediscover a long-lost truth regarding the Lord’s plan to send humanity a Savior, when in our darkest hour, God provided the most clear-cut proof of His control and faithfulness the world would ever know.
