Review

"The classic work which redefines the timeframe of the Exodus and places it firmly in the age of Akhenaten and Tutankhamun. Essential reading for all Bible historians." (Andrew Collins, author of From the Ashes of Angels and Gateway to Atlantis)

"His study makes for an interesting alternative perspective." (Nexus, March/April 2003)

From the Back Cover

ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS / EGYPT "The Classic work which redefines the timeframe of the Exodus and places it firmly in the age of Akhenaten and Tutankhamun. Essential reading for all Bible historians." --Andrew Collins, author of From the Ashes of Angels and Gateway to Atlantis During his reign, the Pharaoh Akhenaten was able to abolish the complex pantheon of the ancient Egyptian religion and replace it with a single god, Aten, who had no image or form. Seizing on the striking similarities between the religious vision of this "heretic" pharaoh and the teachings of Moses, Sigmund Freud was the first to argue that Moses was in fact an Egyptian. Now Ahmed Osman, using recent archaeological discoveries and historical documents, contends that Akhenaten and Moses were one and the same man. In a reinterpretation of the Exodus story, Osman details the events of Moses/Akhenaten's life: how he was brought up by Israelite relatives, ruled Egypt for seventeen years, angered many of his subjects by replacing the traditional Egyptian pantheon with monotheism, and was forced to abdicate the throne. Retreating to the Sinai with his Egyptian and Israelite supporters, he died out of the sight of his followers, presumably at the hands of Seti I, after an unsuccessful attempt to regain his throne. Osman reveals the Egyptian components in the monotheism preached by Moses as well as his use of the Egyptian royal ritual and Egyptian religious expression. He shows that even the Ten Commandments reveal the direct influence of Spell 125 in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Moses and Akhenaten provides a radical challenge to long-standing beliefs concerning the origin of Semitic religion and the puzzle of Akhenaten's deviation from ancient Egyptian tradition. In fact, if Osman's contentions are correct, many of the major Old Testament figures are of Egyptian origin. AHMED OSMAN was born in Cairo in 1934, where he studied law. He is also the author of Stranger in the Valley of Kings, Out of Egypt, and The House of the Messiah. He has lived in England since 1964.

I find it funny that most people on here that have given there rewiew is of a Christian origins. He has truly out classed many interpretation that Christian historians have been about to give.
Using his philosophies should only encourage one to search for themselves instead of following these preachers, Elders without research for themselves. Josephus Flavius, Manetho and other called Mosheh and Egyptian and if you were to look at the life style (meaning upbringing of Akhenaton) you is identical to that of Mosheh.
I'm a Yisraelite and I have to commend him on this research because it was definetely good.

Moses and Akhenaten is a 'must read' book for all readers who are interested in the historical background of the Bible. Osman writes with authority and sensitivity on the enigmatic characters of Moses and Akhenaten and this formative epoch of monotheism. As usual, he cuts through the thick veil of religious myths and takes us out of the confusion by fitting Moses/Akhenaten into the correct historical context. And when he does this, Lo and Behold, a whole new picture begins to emerge, clear, lucid and which has that distinct ring of truth. This is a book that will thrill the seasoned amateur of historical whodunnits as well as all newcomers into this exciting field of study.

I've read most of the other works on this subject (his and others) and eagerly awaited this one. Honestly I was disappointed, because I suspect this is a reprint of an earlier edition. It serves largely to reinforce what has already been presented so I can recommend it only if the reader is first encountering the material. Although it has some photos, at many points the text would be improved with topical graphs or maps. How tough could that be? I'll now be watching for his next effort.

Anything for money... what a joke. The idea that the Atenist religion was the first monotheism is silly when one considers that other deities(including Ma'at) continued to exist alongside the Aten. Akhenaten did not remove all the other Netjeru, but most of them. Still, this makes the religion far from the standard of 'monotheism.' Additionally, the Egyptians were already a form of monotheistic(where the various 'gods,' or Netjeru, are aspects of the One) and similar ideas were found in Babylon in its latter years.
It has been supposed that Moses may be a shortened version of an Egyptian name(such as Thothmosis). True or not, I do not believe this makes Moses an Egyptian king, the founder of monotheism, and so on.
This is just another ploy to sell books to people who enjoy 'conspiracy theories'- it's really just the "I know a secret" mentality that people buy into. I'm not saying that conspiracies and secrets don't exist... but this is just silly.
