Product Description

Sarna examines the distinctiveness of the Exodus narrative in light of ancient Near Eastern history and contemporaneous cultures--Egyptian, Assyrian, Canaanite, and Babylonian. In a new Foreword to the 1996 edition, Sarna takes up the debate over whether the exodus from Egypt really happened, clarifying the arguments on both sides and drawing us back to the uniqueness and enduring significance of biblical text.

    Any book by Dr. Nahum Sarna is well worth reading. He is a world class scholar of the Bible. Exploring Exodus is fundamental to a scholarly understanding of the Book of Exodus. This is combined with serious understanding and respect of traditional Jewish commentators.

    His Understanding Genesis came first in the series and is also highly recommended for a real of understanding of the Book of Genesis. It is always helpful to read a book in accordance with what is really there and not just with preconceived notions.

    Dr. Sarna is a master teacher. Read him and learn.
