Exploring Exodus: The Origins of Biblical Israel

Exploring Exodus: The Origins of Biblical Israel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sarna examines 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.
