Reviews - What do customers think about Unwrapping the Pharaohs: How Egyptian Archaeology Confirms the Biblical Timeline?
an amazing synthesis of history Mar 25, 2007
I recently discovered this book while flipping through a book magazine. Since I have seen very little of Egyptian history in conjecture with the Bible I thought that I would pick this up. All I can say is wow. I am a history major in college and I have never seen a more unique and convincing synthesis of Egyptian history. David Down really impressed me. His idea is very simple and very direct. He believes that if we are to understand history that we should look at the history of the Hittites, the Egyptians and Hebrews. He believes that by looking at all three together we will see them line up. He appears to be right about this assumption. He gives convincing evidence that would be hard to refute. He covers a broad spectrum of material that is concise but strong. Being an archaeologist for the last 48 years has really made David Down a great professional in his field. He goes through every dynasty of Egyptian history and matches it with World history. Very well done! My highest recommendations for this book! By the way, the chapters about dynasties 18 and 19 are some of the best chapters.
Puts all the chronologies in line with Biblical history Jan 15, 2007
This book is a very readable book, although I'd have liked to see a bit more depth. It does however manage to put the chronologies of Velikovsky and Courville and the like into one coherent chronology and ties this in to the Biblical History, something that I've struggled a bit with, not being an Egyptologist. It provides a really helpful overview that is easy to read and is hence a good starting point to launch out into deeper studies. An excellent book.
Well worth the Money! Jan 9, 2007
This book is fantastic! Not only do you get a book though, you also get a movie and that is an added bonus for the money. The nice thing is that the movie isn't some five minute blurb, but a full hour and a half. Money spent on this purchase was worth it.
An Indispensable Resource Jan 9, 2007
John Ashton and David Down have put together a very impressive document utilizing a revised Egyptian chronology. The book is very well-presented and easy to read, the pictures are breathtaking, and the research is very well-done, making good use of a plethora of sources as indicated by their extensive bibliography and use of footnotes. As a Young Earth Creationist, I was delighted to see an Egyptian chronology which meshed with the Biblical timeline, and the authors do an excellent job with their work regarding Emmanuel Velikovsky's theories regarding the Third Intermediate Period. The work done by Ashton and Down have led to interesting conclusions such as that regarding the the Queen of Sheba's correlation to Queen Hatshepsut, as well as the conclusion naming Khasekhemre-Neferhotep I and Sesostris III as the pharaohs of the Israelite Exodus and Oppression, respectively. This book became one of my most-used resources in a college-level paper I wrote for a history class at the Pennsylvania State University regarding the dates of the Hebrew Exodus. I am very pleased to recommend it.
