From the Inside Flap
es 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.

This book provides some interesting perspectives on the Exodus. One of the many things that I liked about this book is that it provided the context of other cultures of the time. The author also takes on some of the inconsistencies of the scriptures.
What was most refreshing for me in reading this book, however, is that most of the things that I have read concerning the scripture have been from a Christian perspective. This book is written from the Jewish perspective which was another interesting element to the book for me.
