Review: Unwrapping the Pharaohs: How Egyptian Archaeology Confirms the Biblical Timeline


Unwrapping the Pharaohs: How Egyptian Archaeology Confirms the Biblical TimelineUnwrapping the Pharaohs: How Egyptian Archaeology Confirms the Biblical Timeline by John F. Ashton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A very cool and interesting book going into great detail for newcomer to the study of Egypt. Dates, images, artifacts and more are given in beautiful display on this large coffee table style book. Showing the fallacies in typical "orthodox" dating of Egyptian chronology, and how when a reduced history is adopted as many modern scholars have suggested, it makes the Bible's chronology connect and align with the Egyptian timeline, providing cool insights into biblical texts. I really enjoyed this book, and now would love to go visit this land and see these sites up close and personal.

"THE PYRAMIDS ARE THE OLDEST MONUMENTS OF CIVILIZATION ON THE EARTH. THESE STRUCTURES AND THE RELICS THEY CONTAIN ARE THE MOST TANGIBLE PHYSICAL LINKS WITH OUR ANCIENT PAST AND PROVIDE IMPORTANT CLUES TO OUR ORIGINS." -From the Introduction

Mummies, pyramids, and pharaohs! The culture and civilization of the ancient Egyptians have fascinated people for centuries and some have direct correlation to biblical events.

Abraham, Joseph, Moses and Jesus each spent part of their lives in Egypt. In recent years, however, liberal teachers and professors have used the traditional Egyptian chronology to undermine the truth of the biblical record in Exodus.

Authors David Down and John Ashton present a groundbreaking new chronology in Unwrapping the Pharaohs that shows how Egyptian Archaeology supports the biblical timeline.

Go back in time as famous Egyptians such as the boy-king Tutankhamen, the female pharaoh Hatshepsut, and the beautiful Cleopatra are brought to life. Learn who the pharaoh of the Exodus was and where his pyramid is in this captivating new look at Egyptian history from a biblical worldview.
