Today there are nine different routes for the Exodus and Red Sea crossing, and more than a dozen locations for Mount Sinai. But which is the real one? Each route places the encampments of Israel in different locations. Specifically, while historians traditionally place Israel on the east side of the Nile Delta, Artapanus, Philo, Josephus, Eusebius, and John of Nikiu all have Moses or the children of Israel on the west side of the Nile. In his new Xulon Press book, Exodus: The Route * Sea Crossing * God’s Mountain ($20.99, paperback, 978-1-61379-297-1; $32.99, hardcover, 978-1-61379-298-8; $9.99, eBook, 978-1-61379-403-6), author G.M. Matheny utilizes Scripture verses, traditions, history, and archaeology to try and uncover the amazing truth about the routes of the Exodus and the Red Sea crossing.
“I want readers to learn that the Bible is accurate,” the author says. “Critics say the Exodus account was a ‘fabricated history’ by Jewish priests to provide their people with a past. The Exodus and the miracles of the Bible all happened as stated (1 Corinthians 10:1-11), and though one may make an allegory from them, the events are historical.”
Matheny—who is the author of a previous book titled The Quest for the Location of the Red Sea Crossing—is a former navy diver who received the Legion of Merit for a special operation. He and his wife, Nancy, emigrated from the United States to Romania in 1991 with their six children, where they currently serve as missionaries.
Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 8,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Exodus through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
