Did Moses Misrepresent The Ten Commandments? - A New Novel Explores This Intriguing Possibility
Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons
CHICAGO, IL - October 14, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Thou shall not kill. Thou shall not steal. Thou shall not commit adultery. Even the casual observer would recognize these statements as linchpins of The Ten Commandments. But "THE MOSES RIDDLE," a new novel by Chicago writer Hunt Kingsbury and published by Bimini Road Publishing, suggests that Moses may have concocted these laws to rein in his unruly followers and hidden the real Ten Commandments on a secret return trip to Egypt. (Exodus 23 Vs Exodus 34).
In THE MOSES RIDDLE, the first in a series that follows Egyptologist Thomas McAllister as he searches for great lost treasures, McAllister finds the lost account of a secret journey Moses made to Egypt after the Exodus. Using clues in the text, McAllister ingeniously finds a perplexing riddle Moses carved inside the oldest temple in Egypt. The riddle leads McAllister and his partner Mayanologist Ann Davenport to a treasure so powerful, so controversial, that both government and high powered religious factions will stop at nothing to confiscate it.
"A cross between Indiana Jones and The Fugitive, this fast-paced work is a first novel chock full of surprising twists and turn, bursting with suspense, romance and betrayal," says Ann Collette, of Helen Rees Literary Agency
In addition to exploring the controversial fact that Moses provided two very different versions of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 23 Vs Exodus 34), the book also contains an encrypted riddle worth $5,000 to whoever can solve it. "Readers who like mystery novels fit the same demographics as people who enjoy solving riddles," says author Hunt Kingsbury. Updates and readers' progress on solving the riddle will be posted at the author's web page www.huntkingsbury.com.
