Product description


This book is an excellent source to use in conjunction with one's study of Exodus, a "must by" for all evangelical professors of Old Testament studies as well as pastors and Bible teachers interested in information regarding the historical reliability of the Israelites' existence in Egypt. Because of the wealth of information and documentation provided in this book, there is truely no other book of its kind. (mark Rooker, Faith and Mission, Vol.17, No.3, Summer 2000.)

"This is historical research at its best, with constant attention to primary sources...[Hoffmeier] retains a broad perspective and leaves no stone unturned in his quest to have the epigraphic and archeological evidence shed light on the biblical record of Israel's sojourn in and exodus from Egypt."―Gary Rendsburg, Cornell University


Scholars of the Hebrew Bible have in the last decade begun to question the historical accuracy of the Israelite sojourn in Egypt, as described in the book of Exodus. The reason for the rejection of the exodus tradition is said to be the lack of historical and archaeological evidence in Egypt. Those advancing these claims, however, are not specialists in the study of Egyptian history, culture, and archaeology. In this pioneering book, James Hoffmeier examines the most current Egyptological evidence and argues that it supports the biblical record concerning Israel in Egypt.
