even a lay person will find this book easy to listen to. while academic in nature, it is written in a tone and style that everyone can understand. also, the narator/author is great on tape!
What did you love best about The Exodus?
From a laypersons perspective.......Friedman did a great job of providing some well needed context for this specific amd critical section of the Torah in the Old Testament.[WARNING: potential spoiler alert].He handles some very hard passages about gods and queens in a very meaningful way. I have seen fellow monotheists ignore this section or scratch their head and think, “why is this here?” or question the relevance.
For me personally, I thought this pulled in other deities (i.e. gods) and displayed why the plagues occurred and that the ”specific plagues” was God showing he is the one true God.
Yes, the above is probably highly debated but found this a good listen and piqued my latent understanding to dig further dig (no pun intended around archeology).....but he also did address the intersection and or conflict between letting scripture interpret scripture and/or the struggles with archeology being the substamtiating body of scripture
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Exodus?
Monotheist and aetheists
Which scene was your favorite?
Oh and I must say ...... I really enjoy when the author reads their work as tone and inflection add true meaning to conveying their pursuit. Humbly this was so good I will probably actually buy the book amd read it as I have found this approach a strong reinforcememt to my lifelong adult learning.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me think,reason amd actually want to dialogue more about the Old Testament.
