The Bible Myth is a compelling theory and Mr. Greenberg's research was quite thought provoking. I am a student of history and probably have a better than average knowledge of Egyptian history, yet I found myself quite lost on several occasions. It would be to the reader's advatage to have a general knowledge of Egyptian history especially between the Pharoahs of Akahanaten and Ramases II. If Bible or Egyptian studies interest you this is a truly fascinating book!

Format: Hardcover
The Moses Mystery by Gary Greenberg is intriging to say the least. Although the information he has presented is not totally new. Anyone who has an interets in the Biblical Data and who wants to understand where the information has come from then with some patience and persistance this will be a good read. Many questions are asked or posed and some of the answers do not sit beside the popular View. The Moses Mystery offers a different view of the biblical and ancient Egyptian data it offers some possible solutions to the many unanswered quetions we have been led to believe. Some basic knowledge of African History would be useful as the information Greenburg presents gets very deep, but after reading "The Moses Mystery" it will have you searching for more information. Some useful book titles in the same vein are " Ancient Egypt Light of the world by Gerald Massey, "Echoes of the old Dark Land" by Charles Finch "Astrology of the Old Testament" "Dawn Of Conscious" by Gerald Massey.
Some questions that have never been answered in church will be answered in these books. Greenburgs book "The Moses Mystery" adds a slightly different perspective to the African origin of the Bible and the relevance ancient Egypt has played.

Format: Paperback
In Acts chapter 7v22 Stephen says "Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians". What wisdom did he learn? Greenberg points out that at the time of Moses (and centuries before hand) the Egyptians had very reasonable social laws and rules as reflected in The Negative Confession, they practiced circumcision, they viewed pork as unclean to eat, they had ideas of the afterlife, they had the Osiris myth where Osiris judged whether or not the persons behaviour had been good enough to allow them to pass to the afterlife/heaven, they had some sort of resurrection of Osiris idea too. Also in Akhenaten they had a king who enforced monotheistic doctrine & rejected the Osiris Judgement/afterlife. Akhenaten was the sole priestly representitive of god and people had to comply with the laws Akhenaten imposed .The New Testament insists Moses had learned all this from the Egyptians. The old Testament maintains Moses gained all these ideas directly from God, up Mt Sinai. The New Testament is heretical to the Old Testament. Jews will point out that Christianity is not supported by the Hebrew Bible and Jesus does not fit the criteria of their expected Messiah. What on earth is going on?
In this book Gary Greenberg puts a very plausible theory which could be the true history of religion in the Ancient Near East by demonstrating how religions evolve/emerge from previous religions/superstitions. A contingent of Egyptians who had been devoted to Akhenatens monotheistic ideas have to flee to Canaan following Akhenatens death. In Canaan they mingle with the native Canaanites who have a pantheon of gods where El, the father, has sons Yahweh & Baal etc.
