On 6/6 Simply Emmy wrote: At first look, I thought the book is non-fiction but it's actually a novel about the life and times of Moses - a fictional account of Moses with the author filling in the gaps and the in-between scenes that we don't read in the Bible. It's a historical exploration of the books of Genesis and Exodus with ... The God Whom Moses Knew - A Novel

Next my problem is that this book is a work of fiction, I believed it was a non-ficition story recounting the tale of Moses. This wouldn’t ... Monday Musings #29

On 12/9 LadyShearon wrote: I enjoyed this book, and I rarely read fiction. However, I love the story of Moses, and the description of this book just pulled me in. In some ways, this book reads like a paraphrase of the story of Moses. There is a lot of narrative in places, as must be expected, particularly when the Tabernacle ... A Wonderful Book

On 9/11 Toyin Agunbiade wrote: Its Roger Nelson’s version of events of the Israelite’s story through Moses’ eyes. I love the fact that it is written from the perspective of what may have been running through the minds of Moses, Aaron, Miriam and the Israelites.

On 9/4 Jonathan Esterman wrote: What if you had the chance to experience a more intimate form of the tale of Moses? What if you could figuratively walk alongside this revered forefather of the Bible? Would you take hold of the opportunity? I don’t know if there’s a single individual that wouldn’t. Whether it be to learn the ... A fictional chance to live history

On 3/7 Two Cents Worth wrote: Roger Nelson succeeds in bringing Hebrew history of the Bible to life. Staying true to the scripture, he takes us into the Pharoah’s palace where Moses grew up, then into the hovels the Hebrew people lived in, and into the fields they were forced to work. In Dr. Nelson’s book, we become a part of ... The God Whom Moses Knew - a review

On 2/21 Qathy wrote: The God Whom Moses Knew by J. Roger Nelson, M.D., is a novel tightly shaped by the biblical narrative of the Exodus, richly textured with commentary, viewed through the lens of Moses' life. Imaginative little vignettes introduce the backstories of major characters. More attentive editing would improve ... The God Whom Moses Knew
