When I first picked up this work, I remembered that the author, Orson Scott Card, is Mormon. Not being Mormon myself, I was a little skeptical; I thought that distinctly Mormon theology would permeate the entire work. But since I have enjoyed Card's other works, I thought I'd give it a try. I am very glad I did. This novel brings the story of Exodus leaping out of the page and into brilliant life. Never before in my experience have I read a novel with a Scriptural setting of such quality. The author has researched the topic very well, incorporating both Scriptural and extra-Scriptural material in the story. I would recommend this work to both Card devotees and anyone looking for Christian fiction a far sight better than the rest.

I love stories told by people with intimate knowledge. Loved his depiction of Moses as a stutterer and why

We all know the story of the Exodus. We've probably seen 'The Ten Commandments' and/or 'The Prince of Egypt' at least once and been taught the story in Sunday School. However, Card brings new light to the story by fleshing out Moses, Aaron, Miriam, and their contemporaries. The best part, however, is that he gives convincing evidence for placing the Exodus several years before Ramses during the time of Thutmose III.
