The History of Israel, vol. 2: History of Moses and the Theocracy

The time the Israelites spent in Egypt culturally influenced God’s people and the second volume in Georg Heinrich Ewald’s History of Israel expounds upon that idea. Drawing from his decades of careful scholarship and experience, renowned Hebrew scholar Ewald details Israel’s struggles first as slaves in Egypt, then as a people in exodus, led by Moses.
