Reviews - What do customers think about Moses And The Gods Of Egypt: Studies In The Book O?

A commentary which you can read from cover to cover!  Sep 22, 2007
Moses and the Gods of Egypt is an in-depth, section-by-section commentary of the book of Exodus. It is written from a conservative, Bible-believing viewpoint. The book is divided into 13 chapters, making it suitable for weekly bible study lasting one quarter. For each section, the author gives a vivid narrative description his interpretation of what occurred, bringing in Egyptian religious and political customs, as well as information from recent archaeological and historical studies. Also, at many controversial passages which interpretation is commonly disputed, he details both sides of the arguments and concludes very convincingly the conservative viewpoint from evidences found in the Bible.

The author also uses his extensive cultural and historical knowledge of the region, gained from his years of archaeological experience, to pen for us a most interesting commentary. He describes the historical and political background of the time, to thus grant the readers a much richer understanding of the implications and reasons behind some of the occurrances in the Bible. For example, he provides a very detailed description of the impact each plague would have in Egypt, bringing in the intricacies of the Egyptian deities and with this knowledge, show us how it not only devastated them economically and physically, but also psychologically and spiritually.

This book is a very interesting read that bring the book of Exodus to life. Through the author's vivid descriptions and linking of historical background information, he manages to enthrall the reader with the story line of the Exodus account, and at the same time, drawing practical applications from the text. The commentary is extensive, not missing out any verse, and yet no part of it is dry. His extensive archaeological experience is put to good use here, as he brings us through the journey from the intricacies of the Egyptian religion and culture, through the climate and vegetation of the Sinai region.

I personally found the book most enjoyable and at the same time informative and edifying. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to both the lay reader as well any student or teacher of the Bible. His extensive bible references and reference to the Hebrew Bible is enough for a serious Bible scholar to research into. At the same time, his use of descriptive prose and practical applications will do well to benefit any Christian reader, young or old.
