Based on extensive research into Egyptian history, archaeology, literature, and mythology, the author contends that
-- The twelve tribes of Israel never existed
-- The founding patriarchs of the Hebrew people were actually characters from Egyptian mythology
-- The first Israelites were Egyptians, followers of the Pharaoh Akhenaten, who attempted to introduce monotheism to Egypt in the fourteenth-century B.C.
-- Moses was a chief priest of Akhenaten's cult who was later given safe passage out of Egypt after a failed attempt to seize the pharaoh's throne.
The Bible Myth, while certain to ignite major controversy among scholars, religious historians, and lay readers throughout the world, will also have a special appeal to the growing and enthusiastic audience for multicultural histories that show the influence of African peoples on the development of Western civilization.
