The Origin of the Hebrews and Their Faith (Paperback)
This book discusses: the origins of the Hebrew people and the source of their faith; the origin of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and of the mothers; the consolidation of the Hebrew tribes in the land of Canaan; and the adoption of a new God. The book reveals surprising findings on the origin of the tribes and the source of their chosen God, and on their transformation into a cultural-social-political entity that culminated in the establishment of the kingdom of Israel.
The myth of the exodus from Egypt is especially discussed, and the astonishing similarity between the monotheistic theology of Moses with its moral imperatives to those documented in ancient Egyptian writings.
This fascinating material is presented to the reader in attractive language and pictures from historical sources to illustrate the subjects.
