About the Book

Two ancient cultures meet. Two nations clash. The recent updating of Egyptian chronology puts a new slant on the history of Egypt and Israel. Moses and Hatshipsut are raised as brother and sister and then grow up to become leaders of these two nations. From palace privilege to desert deprivation, the character of Moses is forged. While Moses, the Prince of Egypt, turns his back on the throne, his sister, “Hat” dreams of becoming Pharaoh. How this unique woman overcomes personal tragedy and loss to rule successfully for twenty years the most advanced civilization of her time is a fascinating story. Fast forward to the early 20th century. Imagine the excitement when out of the murky depths of King Tot’s tomb emerged the magnificent golden throne of that short lived ruler, a descendant of Hatshepsut. The Prophet and the Pharaoh takes us back to1446 B.C. with the account of Moses emerging from the spiritual darkness of polytheistic Egypt to reveal to the world a gleam of gold…The Golden Rule, embedded in the Ten Commandments.
