Combining fascinating historical and archaeological evidence with the biblical narrative, the author highlights how Exodus applies to us today.
Few, if any, lands have a lineage longer or more splendid than ancient Egypt. The domain of the pharaohs has influenced nations near and far, antique and modern. The collision between the overweening pride of a venerable culture and the settled purposes of God, as described in the Book of Exodus, forms one of the climactic moments of all history. It is fundamental to understanding His plan for his world and for each human being.
Combining fascinating historical and archaeological evidence with the biblical narrative, the author highlights how Exodus applies to us today, exploring twelve broad themes against the backdrop of a turbulent period in Egyptian history. The message is timeless. It holds regardless of when the Israelites’ captivity, departure from Egypt and time of testing in the desert took place.
Our nation, too, is suffering hard bondage no less real than was Israel’s under the rulers of The Two Lands. We desperately need to heed the call of our Saviour, who longs to lead us back to a life of freedom with him. Our choice is stark: to stand before Him or kneel before the enemy.
