Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Did the Red Sea really part before the Israelites? Why didn't the fire consume the Burning Bush? What was the Manna in the Wilderness? The Miracles of Exodus explores the truth about these and all the other Exodus mysteries, including the precise locations of Mount Sinai, the Red Sea Crossing, and the route of the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt 3,000 years ago. This investigative tour de force explains the Ten Plagues, the true location of Mt. Sinai, the ultimate crossing of the Jordan, and much more. Colin Humphreys, a distinguished British scientist, uses physics, astronomy, biology, and other scientific resources to show that the mysteries and miracles of the Exodus have scientific explanations. These explanations allow us to pinpoint the exact nature, time, and place of these miracles, and to reconstruct, for the first time, the true route of the Exodus.

Presented in a "you are there" style, this book reveals what really happened and how the biblical account is remarkably accurate and historical when scientifically investigated. Profusely illustrated with maps, photographs, and explanatory tables, this book by one of the world's great scientists unlocks the mysteries of the ultimate Bible story in a fascinating and convincing way.

Synopsis:

From the plagues to the crossing of the Red Sea, a distinguished Cambridge scientist reveals the fascinating scientific explanations of the Exodus miracles. 50 photos.

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Walking the Bible, acclaimed scientist Colin Humphreys sheds new light on some of the most important stories in the Bible. In The Miracles of Exodus, he reveals the causes of the plagues, the logistics of the Red Sea crossing, the precise location of Mount Sinai, the reality of the Burning Bush, and the true route of the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt 3000 years ago. He then uses physics, astronomy, biology, and other scientific resources to show that the mysteries of the Exodus have scientific explanations that allow us to pinpoint the exact nature and time of these events.

In this revolutionary analysis, Humphreys's findings provide new understanding and insight to the stories of Passover and the liberation from Egypt. He demonstrates that these "miracles" are actual, but extraordinary, natural events. Whether we see them as miraculous is a matter of faith.
