What if Moses wrote a sixth book, an addition to Genesis, Exodus, and the rest? Not a history book or a legal code, but something more intimate, something personal. This historical novel is Michael Bell’s vision of what that might look like, Moses’ story of his own life, told in his words, unedited by three thousand years of priests and scholars who have agendas of their own. Mr. Bell presents the prophet in a very different light, as an ambitious man with very mixed motives…and his own agenda. This Moses has different view of himself than that transmitted to us by scripture and religion. Yet he still manages to accomplish all the great works attributed to him. How Moses goes about this – and how, in the end, he comes to see God – is the story told in this book.
