ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"One seldom encounters an author with Sivertsen's broad learning, meticulous scholarship, and graceful writing. Because of her thoroughness, the research in this book will remain valuable for decades to come: she has done an exceptional job of digging into the wide variety of fields relevant to understanding the Exodus. A superb and stunning book."--Paul and Elizabeth Barber, authors of When They Severed Earth from Sky: How the Human Mind Shapes Myth

"Effectively weaving together and analyzing a large amount of data, The Parting of the Sea is a well-researched, well-written look at the recent information, theories, and hypotheses dealing with the Exodus and occupation of Canaan by the Israelites."--Jelle Zeilinga de Boer, author of Volcanoes in Human History: The Far-Reaching Effects of Major Eruptions
