What People are Saying About This

Gary Rendsburg

This is historial research at its best, with constant attention to primary sources...[Hoffmeier] retains a boad 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.
