I have been fascinated with archaeology since I was a little child. But much like the questions I had about where dinosaurs fit into the Bible, I felt that the Scriptures must have been in error because the Egyptian chronologies didn't line up with the stories of the Bible. Praise the Lord for those who have taught me differently...using Scriptures and books such as this one. If you have ever questioned the authority of Scripture based on archaeology or accepted timelines and chronologies, you must purchase this book. The photos are great, and the information is mind-blowing. A bonus DVD is included with my book, but I've not had time to review it yet...
We loved the colored pages, which were loaded with historical photos, maps and charts. This book was similar in layout as Unveiling the Kings of Israel, and both resources share how archaeology confirms the biblical timeline. One of my favorite parts of the book is the timeline section at the beginning of each chapter, the graph shows the placement of biblical history along side the history of Egypt. So it's easy to see that King Khufu was ruling when Abraham visited Egypt in Genesis 12:10.
The only 'con' that comes to mind is of the Egyptian culture, this book does not hide the paganism that was deeply imbedded in society. Some graphics may need additional clothing, depending on family preference.
I would recommend Unwrapping the Pharaohs for the high school student and adult, possibly for younger children depending upon your personal convictions. Truly a wonderful resource for history.
This is a fascinating book. Very, very well written. I would reccomend it in a heart beat. I am ordering a second copy to use as a witnessing tool to someone who said they were into the study of pyramids.
This is a very informative book, that is written so that the common man can understand it. Very interesting infomation, that you don't get from evolutionists and atheists. Great photos, too. My husband and I, are enjoying it. Hardbound with DVD, great price.
