9780609801307: Pharaohs and Kings: A Biblical Quest

Pharaohs and Kings reveals the Old Testament to be a true account of the history of the Jewish people. Illustrated throughout, it will appeal to the vast audience for revisionist archaeology and history as well as to the many Christian and Jewish readers who accept the historical validity of the Bible. Pharaohs and Kings was made into a highly acclaimed television series produced by The Learning Channel.

From Library Journal:

British Egyptologist Rohl has produced a sumptuous popular summary of his ten-year "search for historical truth." Claiming no religious presuppositions, he has made a strong defense of the historicity of the Hebrew Bible by radically revising the traditional Egyptian chronology from the Middle Kingdom until the sacking of Thebes in 664 B.C. His "new chronology," combined with his new identifications of a few pharaohs encountered by the Hebrews, leads to the correlation of Saul and David with the Amarna period of Pharaoh Akhenaton and the dating of the Exodus to the reign of Rameses II. The new Exodus date produces a close correlation to the cultural conditions and destruction levels in Palestine. This is an excellent introduction to a topic that will surely be debated in the scholarly literature. Including end notes and an extensive bibliography for the reader who can handle the literature, the book is enhanced by exceptionally clear, helpful black-and-white photos; three groupings of color plates; numerous clear maps, charts, and diagrams; and an excellent glossary.

From Publishers Weekly:

This volume, a companion to the current Learning Channel TV series of the same name (first known in Britain as A Test of Time: The Bible from Myth to History), intends to upend current chronology as it pertains to the Middle East. By re-examining the reigns of the pharaohs and concluding that some ruled simultaneously, Egyptologist Rohl has shifted the established scheme of things by several centuries. Along the way, he claims to have found better and/or possible historical matches for such biblical characters as Joseph and Moses, who continue constantly to disappear into the land of legend for lack of archeological evidence. Despite its simplicity and first-person familiarity, Rohl's prose does not sacrifice substantive content. Overflowing with high-quality illustrations, charts and maps and with a running glossary, the volume (as well as the series) will appeal to a broad public.
