    Though I have an MDiv, I knew next to nothing about Ancient Egypt before reading this book. Other than tidbits I picked up along the way (some of which were erroneous), I was a complete ignoramus when it came to Egyptology. In that light, Currid's book is nothing short of amazing. It's obviously super-scholarly; probably half the footnotes cite French or German obscure archaeology journals. That being said, it is clearly-written, captivating, enjoyable, none-too-long, and extremely illuminating for so much of the Old Testament. Next time I preach Genesis or Exodus or 1 Kings, I'll be shamelessly relying on this resource. I'd strongly recommend it to all pastors. My only quibble is the price. It's a bit expensive for a softcover book just over 200 pages.

    Dr Currid has written an excellent resource for those interested in the relationship between Egypt and Israel. This book is outstanding because Dr Currid starts with the Bible and then brings in cultural analysis to explain hidden gems. This resource has gone beyond my expectations and has far exceeded anything I thought I was getting. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in this field.
