Moses in the Sinai free pdf "Moses in the Sinai" rewrites the books of "Exodus" and "Numbers" by way of "The Arabian Nights", Nikos Kazantzakis, and Cecil B. DeMille. It makes generous use of myth and history, ancient and contemporary. The Hebrews of the novel are a varied mob of outlaws, magicians, sorcerers, aristocrats, and idolators, all content with being slaves. Moses must lead them into the Sinai against their will in the hope of serving a God whose very identity he doubts.

It is a world where human emotion can take miraculous forms. This book is full of such miracles.
