Editorial Reviews

Rachel S. Hallote
The thesis...is that accurate knowledge about contemporary Egypt was available to the biblical writers. Currid puts this point of view forward in opposition to the currently prevailing school of thought which states that OT writers were not familiar with contemporary Egypt but were writing out of context....Currid...is at his best in this when discussing whether the 10 plagues should be seen as events with natural explanations or purely as literary creations....[T]he point of view he puts forward has been often neglected especially in recent years. — Society of Biblical Literature
