Exodus Lost by S.S.Compton is easier to describe by saying what it isn’t than what it is. Despite having a lot about the Bible in it, it isn’t a book with any particular angle on religion. It isn’t a conventional history book. And it isn’t a crazy ‘Chariots of the Gods’ style fairy story. So what is it? It is a very good read, and because it has a sort of detective story feel to it, I don’t really want to talk about the contents. You don’t often have to worry about spoilers reviewing history books. But in this case the fun is seeing the case being built up. Let’s just say it covers the question of whether or not there was communication between Ancient Egypt and the civilisations of South America.
