The Mahabharata, an ancient and vast Sanskrit poem, is a remarkable collection of epics, legends, romances, theology, and ethical and metaphysical doctrine. The core of this great work is the epic struggle between five heroic brothers, the Pandavas, and their one hundred contentious cousins for rule of the land. This is the third volume of van Buitenen's acclaimed translation of the definitive Poona edition of the text. Book 4, The Book of Virata, begins as a burlesque, but the mood soon darkens amid molestation, raids, and Arjuna's battle with the principal heroes of the enemy. Book 5, The Book of the Effort, relates the attempts of the Pandavas to negotiate the return of their patrimony. They are refused so much as a "pinprick of land," and both parties finally march to battle.

Many have tried to tell Bible stories as historical fiction. But I have attempted to tell the entire story of the universe, starting with the Bible and integrating history and chronology, legend, and ancient Talmudic tradition, along with a good deal of speculation. My story begins before time, and continues past the ages of time into eternity. It is an adult work, for some of mankind's descent into depravity cannot be sanitized. But it is also a fun work, as I bounce around from our perspective up to the heavenly realms and even down into hell itself. My purpose was not just to tell the story, but also to teach wisdom and to clarify the nature and character of God. I trust each reader will grow in relationship to the God of infinite love, as I have grown in the writing. Volume Three begins with the Children of Israel, led by Joshua, crossing the Jordan and taking Jericho. It ends with the downfall of Israel, and even good King Jotham of Judah hardening his heart at the word of the Lord through Isaiah.
