Gods of Our Fathers: The Memory of Egypt in Judaism and Christianity

Synopsis

"A new look at Judaism and Christianity by which Gabriel attempts to trace their historical theological roots, not to the revelations of God, but to the common theological ancestor: the religions of ancient Egypt. Using new material only recently made available by archaeology, Gabriel shows how the theological premises of Christianity were in existence three thousand years before Christ and how the heresy of Akhenaten became the source for Moses' Judaism."
