Audio Sample: Moses
Moses. The name conjures every possible emotion. From the pious to disbelievers, among Jews, Christians and Muslims, the figure of Moses is embedded deep in our psyches. Who was this iconic man? Was he the wizened, angry man as the Old Testament portrays him? Did he truly lead a great exodus of 600,000 people from bondage to become the three great Abrahamic religions?
In this controversial book, the author uses the latest archaeological evidence and theories to create an exciting tale of Moses that offers an alternative to the biblical story. Moses tried to force the concept of One God on a reluctant Egypt. Amidst Royal court intrigue and a plotting Amun priesthood, he was exiled, but returned to lead a small group of One God believers on a perilous journey to Canaan. They were the precursors to what became the Jewish people.
