schema:reviewBody""As director of the North Sinai Archaeological Project, James K. Hoffmeier has led several excavations that have uncovered important new evidence supporting the wilderness narratives, including a major New Kingdom fort at Tell el-Borg that was occupied during the Israelite exodus. Hoffmeier employs these archaeological findings to shed new light on the route of the exodus from Egypt. He also investigates the location of Mount Sinai and offers a rebuttal to those who have sought to locate it in northern Arabia and not on the Sinai Peninsula as traditionally thought. Hoffmeier addresses how and when the Israelites could have lived in Sinai, as well as whether it would have been possible for Moses to write down the law received at Mount Sinai. Building on new evidence for the Israelite sojourn in Egypt, Hoffmeier explores the Egyptian influence on the wilderness tradition."--Jacket."
