This book is a fictional reconstruction of Moses' life. It traces how a man called Mose ben Amram learned about his calling from God, and how he struggled to obey that call for the rest of his life. It is an action driven and emotional story that includes a wealth of information about the Bible and ancient Egypt. Fictional elements of the story include Moses' early years in the court school at Gurob, the friendships of his early years, and the troubles of his early adult life before he fled from Thutmose III. Useful historical contexts depicted in this book include the expulsion of Egypt's Hyksos rulers which began Israel's suffering in Egypt, the cultural setting of Moses' birth, and the history of Hatshepsut's conflict with Thutmose III.
