As part of the research for my forthcoming book Did Moses Exist? The Myth of the Israelite Lawgiver, I have done a multipart review of Lennart Möller’s popular book The Exodus Case, which seeks to prove the Exodus to be a historical event, supernatural miracles and all, as depicted in the Bible.
Here are the three parts of the review, which I created on the forum thread for my book Did Moses Exist?
Here is the entire review in a single PDF:

As we can see from reviews of this book on Amazon, the author has managed to convince many people with his arguments. However, as you will read in my review, he has not proved that the Exodus really happened, especially not as depicted biblically, much less demonstrated where it occurred. The conclusion remains that the episode belongs in the realm of myth, much like the national epics of other countries and ethnicities, such as the Homeric and the Indian.
“Congratulations, Acharya. I have never seen the Exodus myth so thoroughly and unequivocally disproved.”
