This book was recommended on Glenn Beck s show once but I found it very disappointing1 this is a Jewish author that didn t even know that the 10 plagues were each an attack on an Egyptian god He called them nuisances Nuisance Yah they were a little than that2 He called God impulsive He said Moses talked God out of being impulsive3 He is anti Catholic but he s anti Catholic without really understanding Catholics Typical4 He said Christians downplay Moses I disagree Moses foreshadowed Christ That is very impt Of course Christ is most impt of all and I understand that a Jewish person would not agree with that That in itself though would not have stopped me from reading the book5 He called the covenants God made with Adam Abraham and Jacob uasi covanenants because they weren t in writing like His covenant with Moses 10 commandments Isn t that like taking today s standards and applying them to yesterday 6 His grammar is incorrect and his editor didn t catch it but I did Again not enough to make me stop reading the book but annoying All together though these things bothered me enough to uit reading it On to something else now

Overall this was an excellent book I struggled in the first 100 pages as maybe the author struggled to choose a tense or a voice He jumps from 1st person to third then engages in conversational dialogue It kind of drove me crazy However eventually we hit a stride The discussion of how the story Moses has been evoked throughout American history was fascinating I most enjoyed the sections on emancipation and the civil rights movement A couple of interesting uotesRousseau describes freedom as giving the law to yourself he said And that s what supposedly happens at Sinai When Moses comes down from the mountain the people say All that the Lord has spoken we will do That s when they become a free society They had been Pharaoh s slaves and now they are God s servants In biblical Hebrew the same word ebed is used to describe the Israelites relationship to Pharaoh and later their relationship to God There s a kind of bondage in freedomSpeaking of Cecil B DeMille and the making of The Ten Commandmentswith DeMille s granddaughterBecause Moses is a universal story than Jesus and in the fifties a relevant story Moses is the antithesis of communism and Grandfather hated communism He said terrible things happened to countries who had no God

This was a fascinating listen especially at this time of year 4th of July I loved how well interwoven Moses is in so much of America s foundation It was interesting to discover how many past American presidents have not only identified with Moses his exodus and liberation of the Israelites but also have uoted distinct passages from Exodus in their speeches It was eually compelling to ascertain how opposing sides both associated with Moses but for obviously different reasons such as the Patriots and Loyalists during the Revolutionary War the North and the South during the Civil War and those anti and pro segregation during the 1960 s I enjoyed realizing how deep rooted the Judaic tradition is in this country how much is has shaped and influenced our society and culture and held the ideas behind super heroes like Superman and Captain America The chapters on Cecil B DeMille his desire to create biblical narratives for the big screen and his insistence on having Charleton Heston portray Moses as a strong confident figure despite character differences found in the Old Testament helped me to appreciate his cinema genius and craftsmanship all the Throughout Feiler provides a very well rounded and structured basis for all of the uestions and arguments he raises including opinions from top scholars and incorporating his own families personal traditions into the mix
