This is an historical fiction adventure story, written for young readers in 1888, by British author George Alfred Henty. This is a unique glimpse into Egyptian culture during the time of Moses and the Captivity of Israel. Henty only lightly touches on Biblical history, concentrating more on Egyptian history, yet there is one scriptural theme used as the linch pin for the entire book: the One True God vs. the many gods, or Monotheism vs. idolatry. Though Henty's narrative style takes a little getting use to (not terse and high speed, like current adventure writers), the book is worth reading. It is a powerful portrayal of the strengths of the religion of the One True God compared to the foolishness of idolatry.
