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.

About the Author:

David Rohl is currently Chairman of the Institute for the Study of Interdisciplinary Sciences.

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.
