AGES IN CHAOS by Immanuel  Velikovsky


Email this review


Worlds in Collision took the reading public unaware, and to the consternation of critics and scientists became a best seller. Much of the sale was to people wanting tangible support of religious faith, which they found in his secular historical evidence for Biblical legends. The more the scholars protested the more the book sold. This new volume will arouse controversy in different quarters, among archeologists, historians, biblical students. And especially among those who specialize in Egyptian and Israelite history, for the main thesis aims to prove that the date of the Exodus should be brought forward by some 600 years, thus giving greater emphasis to the importance of Israel. He identifies through a study of papyri, events which he associates with certain Old Testament stories. It is a big book, amply footnoted, and in view of the reception of the earlier book, may reach both lay and religious book general market. Watch it.
