Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

You’ll never think about the Biblical book of Exodus in the same way again after reading this groundbreaking work by Marianne Luban --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

"…the Book of Exodus is…a composition that incorporates bits of reality from…four separate exodoi of the Children of Israel…protracted over a span of 400 years and…all have left some trace within either recorded history or folk-memory. If all the rumors of these four exodoi really do have a basis in fact, then the first took place under conditions where it seemed the world was coming to an end; the second occurred when a sleeping lion awoke with a terrible roar; the third became the by-product of a religious reformation, led by a fanatic; and the fourth was the denouement of a great drama, surpassing Shakespeare’s Richard the Third, complete with a power-seeking manipulator, helpless young prince, and a queen as a pawn." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Marianne Luban's important new book, "The Exodus Chronicles," is a tremendous step forward in researching and understanding the Exodus.
Working from ancient sources and records, Ms. Luban brings together an extraordinary variety of views and opinions about the Exodus and presents them in a clear and interesting way. "The Exodus Chronicles" provides a fresh and illuminating look at what is perhaps the most dramatic moment in both the Bible and the history of ancient Egypt. The information and insights in this comprehensive book should inspire a new round of interest in The Exodus by scholars and general readers alike. Highly recommended.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Larry L. Wilson on July 27, 2005
Format: Paperback
I must say, this book was a very pleasant read. Marianne's style is warm and clear as she shares her own wonderment and conclusions regarding the Exodus saga. A must for researchers on this topic since she discusses the views of many others. She knows this subject well and I personally got a lot of new research threads from this book making it very worthwhile for me. Her approach to the topic is inviting not pushing, a pleasnt contrast to others writing on controversial ancient Biblical history topics. I also enjoyed her personal sketches of some of the pharoahs, consistent with the warmth you feel from the author when reading her work. Thanks, so much Marianne, for sharing your viewes, research and artistic talents. Highly recommended.
