Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Despite the misleading subtitle, the principal thesis of this work by Greenberg, a trial attorney and president of the Biblical Archaeology Society of New York, is simply that the monotheistic religion of ancient Israel originated in the Aten cult of ancient Egypt. While Yahwism in some ways resembles Atenism, the claim that Yahwism derives directly from it is probably incorrect. For instance, Yahweh is in origin no benevolent sun god like Aten but rather a god of thunder, cataclysm, and war. Greenberg makes other less defensible claims, for instance, that the genealogies of Genesis 5 and 11 are really Egyptian dynastic chronology in disguise. He energetically pursues this very speculative proposal throughout the entire book. One has the feeling, though, that the author decided in advance what his conclusions would be and organized the sketchy archaeological and literary data to prove it. Dense with footnotes and complex in its reasoning, the book presumes a good background in ancient Egyptian history; it is for specialists, not for casual readers. For academic libraries.-James F. DeRoche, Alexandria, Va.

    now you see the light

    The so called scholars and experts always fight the fact that ancient eqypt and its people(african kemetic people) gave the world the bases for all the worlds religion.When they call themselves scholars and experts the very words point to the fact that they have indeed viewed ther total aquired knowledge on subject to be the beginning and end of all information. Mr Greenberg has opened up one more door that western eurocentric minds do not want to admit, but time reveals all things and egypt is now giving up its legacy to the entire world. Thank you Mr greenberg
