4-20-18, Annette -- I just bought the hardcover of Dennis Prager's new book: EXODUS from Amazon and received a sneak preview on my Kindle as well here is a snippet of excerpt:
The Rational Bible: Volume 1
Excerpt: "Many scholars believe the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt; many do not. There are strong logical and historical arguments for the Jews having been enslaved in Egypt. One particularly compelling …. Professor Richard E. Friedman asks: ‘Why would the Torah [Old Testament] make repeated reference to the Israelites having been strangers in Egypt if they were never there? Why would any people make up origins so lowly as being slaves? No other nation did. If it never happened, why bother making it up?"
See 4 minute video when, on 4-2-18, Dennis appeared on Fox Business here
where he explained the format of this 'Rational Bible' showed how historically factual the Holy Bible is in easy to understand language. He is Jewish and does not speak about the Savior Jesus Christ ... it is about the first five books of the Bible when man was trying to obey the law ... [That's why Jesus came to save us ... because man cannot obey the law.]
One positive review from an Amazon reader: [100 reviews 4.6 out of 5 stars]
"Great book so far! As a Christian I value other’s wisdom dealing with ancient scripture. There is little doubt that our decline as a society stems from little wisdom and a lack of belief and study of God. This book can add to your understanding and faith in God and Christ." -- J. Powell

"I become familiar with Dennis Prager through his university videos concerning politics, which I still highly respect. But I must say, this book was so far beyond disappointment it actually had me disgusted enough to shred it halfway through the first chapter wherein I was told that God failed THREE times to created good humans, and that the Torah was sent to rectify the situation by revelation of the law."
The author, Dennis Prager was on Tucker Carlson's show tonight, 4-20-18, and explained that this is first in a series. This book in many forms is being sold everywhere and should be on top of the NYTimes best seller list ... but because of bias against conservatives and religious books - it doesn't even appear on the list.
