Overview

With Bible in hand, Cornuke, a freelance adventurer who has appeared on TV programs such as "Ancient Secrets of the Bible," crisscrossed the Near East searching for the definitive site of Mt. Sinai, where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments from God. He claims to have discovered the actual location where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea, the altar of the golden calf, and the Rock of Horeb, struck by Moses to give water to his people, and, of course, the location of the real Mt. Sinai. Most of his findings are based upon scriptural evidence that many scholars are unwilling to admit can be called fact, such as the controversy as to whether the Israelites actually crossed the Red Sea or the Reed Sea.

    Interesting Reading

    I'm generally skeptical of people who come up with new theories about accepted traditions. I'll also be the first to admit that my Bible knowledge isn't what it should be. The author brings up some interesting theories about biblical locations and his search for artifacts. It is a fairly quick, interesting read that is worth your time. I just can't sign on so quickly to his conclusions, but his hypothesis is well supported.

    Take this with a Grain of Salt

    This book is fascinating but before we start making pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia, we need to look at the flip side of this argument as presented by Gordon Franz and Brad Sparks inthe 'ldolphin.org' website which are also very well documented according to the Bible. Cornuke fashions himself as a real-life Indiana Jones and reminds us several times throughout the book that he was a former SWAT member. As a former Marine and a law enforcement officer, I am not impressed. Cornuke's claims that the Saudis would have executed him for trespassing on an archaeological site are a little far fetched. Franz points out that the sign indicating 'Violators will be put to death' actually reads 'it is unlawful to trespass'. The book makes an interesing case, but before we make Bob Cornuke a folk hero and make Jebel al-Lawz a holy shrine, let's examine some excellent arguments in favor of the traditional Mt. Sinai.

    God's Word stands true

    This book was very interesting; it's amazing to see God's Hand at work in the whole situation! Bob Cornuke & Larry Williams, as real-life adventurers, have had their lives completely transformed from their experience of being led to God's mountain. A true archaeological find!

    Indiana Jones meets Bible Archeology Review

    Bob Cornuke¿s story is both entertaining and convincing. This quick-read is in two distinct parts. First, the riveting true-life story that carries the reader along on a vicariously adventure ride, chronicling Bob Cornuke and Larry Williams¿ exploits . However, it¿s the last section that provides the ¿guts¿ of his persuasive argument. His facts and photos seem to support that these two intrepid adventurers may have actually found the real Mount Sinai of the Bible. Clearly, it¿s an injunction for further research that the academic world cannot ignore. Refreshing in their approach, Cornuke and his friend used the Bible as their guidebook and discovered that Mount Sinai is exactly where, and as, the Bible describes it. Too often we are hampered by baseless traditions, such as the Mountain of God being located in the Sinai Peninsula. All too often we see pseudo-scholars attempt to discredit the Bible by using baseless facts such as this. Unfortunately, most experts have been armchair-bound due to the recalcitrant attitude of the Saudi government. For decades, Western archeologists, Bible scholars and nearly everyone else have consistently been refused entry into Saudi Arabia. Though I can¿t condone the illegal scheme used to sneak into Saudi Arabia, nor the surreptitious methods they used on-site, the results of their clandestine mission are nevertheless staggering. Actually written by one of the participants, I see that an effort has been made to tactfully correct some of the factual errors brought forth previously in various national and international media accounts. ¿The Gold of Exodus,¿ written by New York Times correspondent Howard Blum about this same adventure, misses the spiritual elements and many of the facts described in this volume. Yet, the ¿Gold of Exodus¿ remains an interesting companion piece -- especially to those interested in the friction between Israel and the Arab world. The very-human story of spiritual struggle, along with ample Bible references, facts and photos, make Cornuke¿s effort a valuable work. I heartily recommend Cornuke¿s book to anyone that enjoys an exciting real-life adventure story, or to anyone who is serious about personally investigating the accuracy of the Bible and what may be the archeology find-of-the-century.
