THEY ARE MEN AND NOT GODS looks in depth at stories surrounding ancient Egypt in the Bible, and sheds light on many of the dynamics of society today. Addressed to an anonymous young friend, the book assumes no prior Bible knowledge and can be used as a guide to studying the Bible from a cross-cultural perspective by individuals and groups. People of African descent, who have had their heritage disfigured and denied, are particularly the potential beneficiaries of Maye’s investigative reporting into the highly visible but widely neglected role of Egypt in the Bible. Those of all backgrounds will gain a more accurate view of the God we all claim and to whom we are accountable.

About the Author:

MARILYN C. MAYE, Ed. D is a university professor, educational consultant, conference speaker, and lifelong student of the Bible. While she holds degrees in mathematics, sociology and education from Swarthmore College, Harvard and Columbia Universities, she sees her academic accomplishments rooted in the model she observed growing up in a family with limited opportunities for formal education, integrating the intellectual and the spiritual. Reading the Bible daily and systematically allows her to complete its 66 books every couple of years. That discipline, along with journaling, and attending to sermons, writings, and public teaching of scripture, is the basis for They Are Men And Not Gods. As an educator, Dr. Maye sees the learner as the primary actor, with the teacher playing the supporting role. Much of her career has been dedicated to helping demystify school mathematics so students, parents and teachers can engage it successfully. She is similarly motivated to support people who want to understand the scriptures and put it into action in their lives. The author of Stone of Help: Ebenezer – the First Fifty Years, and co-author of Orita: Rites of passage for youth of African descent in America, she helps young people understand their spiritual heritage and construct their lives on it. Her seminar, Blackness in the Bible, is one of their favorites. Dr. Maye lives in the Bronx, New York. She and her husband have one adult son. www.DrMaye.com.
