Outdated, closed-minded terminology and views
I found the book to be very informational for the beginner as an introduction to Egyptian mythology. However I was taken back by the words 'savage' to describe peoples who worship other deities other than the Judeo-Christian God and Jesus Christ. While the original author speaks of Native American, Aboriginal, Egyptian and other ancient and tribal religions with admiration, he always finds a way to discover fault in their belief system in a way that would heighten Christian thought. He is also careful to skirt the issue of challenging the truth of Christianity while taking aim at other religions, some of which are still thriving today. I'm dissapointed that this piece was printed as it was without a disclaimer about the original author's time period and how it was kept as it was not to ruin its integrity... if that's why the archaic or closed-minded ideology was left in the book.

Quoting my second-grader, 'It inspired me to read more about Egypt.' After reading this book, she brought many books on pyramids, mummies and in general Egypt from her school library. My daughter wants to buy this book for her personal collection. I am all in support for it. It is a great book to read for bed-time stories. Wonderful book to give as a gift to any age group. Thanks for coming up with a great book.
