DESCRIPTION
This is the story of how one man led his people out of slavery to a land that God had promised to give them. His name was Moses.

With vivid, richly detailed illustrations, Brian Wildsmith captures all the major events of one of the greatest stories in the Bible. The story of the Exodus and the rescue of the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt is a powerful and exciting tale which attests that God's guiding hand is always evident.

In Wildsmith's hands, this familiar journey comes alive against stunning backdrops--from the great palaces of ancient Egypt, to the vast expanses of Sinai's mountains and wilderness, to the peaceful place God's people can finally call home.

REVIEWS
Booklist
"As always, Wildsmith's lush pen-and-watercolor paintings bring vivid detail to the story. The spreads range from panoramic views (of ancient Egypt) to composites of smaller scenes (Passover and the Plagues) to close-ups (Moses receiving the Ten Commandments). Gold borders around each spread and the dust jacket and rose-and-gold endpapers depicting replicas of the Ten Commandments add to the elegance of the presentation. A worthy companion to Wildsmith's Joseph."
School Library Journal
"The writing is straightforward and simple; the story is brief but accurate. The artwork is a visual feast. . . Filled with meticulous and decorative detail, glowing with rich colors, and arranged to maximize dramatic impact, the paintings show the awesome events with excitement and beauty."
CBA Marketplace
"Grand-scale illustrations that typically span both large pages edged in gleaming gold wll rivet readers' attention. The compelling, awesome, and intricate artwork will undoubtedly affect forever the way children who experience it view Moses' story."
