New view of theology,

This review is from: Eden in Egypt: Adam and Eve Were Pharaoh Akhenaton and Nefertiti (Paperback)
The main argument in this book is that the Book of Genesis was derived from the Hymn to the Aten, and so Adam and Eve were Akhenaton and Nefertiti. It is a revolutionary idea; one that undermines everything we have been taught about the biblical texts.
Has Ellis proven his case? Not entirely, but the foundations of a completely new understanding of history are definately there, waiting to be expanded upon. If you like new ideas and plenty of facts and quotes to underline them, this book is for you. The comparison between the Egyptian and Hebrew language was interesting too.
