TO THE READER . . .

No one in the world can put together the complete and true story of the development of the greatest invention of them all - the alphabet. This book explores some aspects of how it may have happened - a story of great fascination. In this book the reader may also see that many words contain interesting and tantalizing clues about the dim past. This work is an invitation to the armchair adventurer who wishes to examine possibilities for the origin of the alphabet within a biblical framework for ancient history.
