The central story of Jewish nationhood, the Hebrews' deliverance from Egypt and 40-year migration to the Holy Land has a powerful hold on our imagination and it has inspired countless works of art, including the classic film The Ten Commandments. But is this story a myth, an exaggeration, or a verifiable historical event? Like a detective on an intricate case no one has yet solved, the author of Who Wrote the Bible? uses state-of-the-art archeological breakthroughs and fresh discoveries within scripture to find a historical basis for the exodus. The implications, Richard Elliott Friedman suggests, are monumental: The exodus was a milestone in the establishment of monotheism, and it paved the way for the foundational ethic of loving one's neighbors—including strangers—as oneself.
