After seven years of meticulous research Colin Humphreys has written a fascinating and involving book on the miracles of Exodus and the Israelites' escape from Egypt. Although Humphreys uses science to explain the events of Exodus he does not believe that this makes them any less miraculous - rather, God is the force behind the science. The author answers key questions about the Exodus, such as how many Israelites were involved and how they manage to survive in the desert for 40 years. He argues that the Israelites did indeed cross over the Red Sea (and not the Reed Sea as some scholars claim) and that the real Mount Sinai is not in the Sinai Peninsula but is a volcano in Arabia. Humphreys provides convincing biblical evidence to support his views and his treatment of the subject is fresh, passionate and often amusing. Humphreys concludes* 'I am well aware that most scholars believe the book of Exodus is riddled with errors and inconsistencies. I've subjected the biblical text to a real grilling in this book, and I can only stand back in amazement at its accuracy and consistency, down to points of tiny detail...The Exodus story revealed in this book is truly astonishing, amazing a
By looking through the 'spectacles of science', Colin Humphreys is able to explain miraculous events like the crossing of the Red Sea, the ten plagues and the burning bush.
Did the Red Sea really part before the Israelites? Why didn't the fire consume the burning bush? What was the manna in the wilderness? This book explores the truth about these and all the other Exodus mysteries, including the precise locations of Mount Sinai, the Red Sea crossing, and the route of the Exodus.
Colin Humphreys is director of research at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. He is the author of The Miracles of Exodus (2003). He was awarded a knighthood in 2010 for services to Science.
