Modern historians and scholars have debated the controversial theory that Pharaoh Akhenaten, vilified and deposed for establishing monotheism in Egypt, was also Moses of the Exodus. Author Sheldon Lebold suggests, from an examination of evidence from a variety of sources, that crucial pieces of the story have been overlooked. He gives an analysis of ancient texts, historical documents and contemporary research. He not only presents the Legacy of Moses and Akhenaten from a Jewish perspective, but also demonstrates how one man’s vision laid the foundations for Judaism as we understand it today.
