by Gary North
In the fifteenth century before the birth of Jesus, Moses came before Pharaoh and made what seemed to be a minor request: Pharaoh should allow the Israelites to make a three-day journey in order to sacrifice to their God. But his was not a minor request. Given the theology of Egypt, it was an announcement of an anti-humanist revolution.
This commentary on the first 18 chapters of Exodus is a detailed study of the conflict between Moses and Pharaoh. It discusses the implications of this conflict in several areas: theology, politics, sociology and especially economics. It is eye-opening and will forever change the way you understand the Exodus. Three extended appendices are included that deal with the problem of chronology, population growth and decline, and Egyptian symbolism and architecture. Both a Scripture index and a topical index are included which make the book a valuable reference work.
