5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. H. A. Imam on July 13, 2006
Format: Paperback
I thought it prudent to do a generic review of the two books so at least they can be compared as they are dealing with the same topics. The two books are `Act of God' by Graham Philips and `Out of Egypt' by Ahmed Osman. They should be read concurrently.

The two authors of their respective books do talk about the same topic of the origins of the Bible stories of Moses and Pharoah (Osman also talks about Christianity) but they have different interpretations of the events and identities of the persons involved. At the outset both books seem to furnish the reader with evidence for their theories and convincingly so. But when the two books are compared, they are diametrically opposed.

1. Identity of Moses:

- Philip's view: It was a prince called `Tuthmosis' whose account in Egyptian literature is spurious and not much is said about him. He was the elder brother of Akhenaten and rightful heir to the throne before he mysteriously disappears. Both Moses and Akhenaten shared the similar views about the one deity. Some of the Atenists joined the Israelites during the Exodus

- Osman's view: Moses was Akhenaten. Because they shared the same religious beliefs they must have been the same person

2. Identities of other peoples

- Philip's view: The other peoples such as David, Joshua, Tutenkhamun etc. are as accepted by the conventional thought

- Osman's view: Tutenkhamun was Jesus. He was killed on Mt. Sinai by Pinhas. Osman argues that the New testament also claims that the Roman soldier who killed Jesus on the cross was Pinhas. Hence the real physical Jesus (Titenkahmun) was confused with the spiritual Jesus of the New Testament. Tuthmosis III was David. Aye was Joseph of Arimathea. Amonhotep III was Solomon

I was enthralled with this when I first read it and still subscribe to many of the theories put forth in here. But I'll admit that there does seem to be a bit of a discrepancy between the timing of the eruption of Santorini (Mt Thera) which destroyed Minoan Civilization (est to be anywhere from 1640 to 1500BC) and the time of Akhenaten's Rule (est 1350-1336BC). Which is a damn shame, because its such a "beautiful" theory.
