Colin’s research into Egyptian history and his correction of previously held beliefs resulted in his book “Striving for Perfection” which has now been recognised in the USA.
MidWest Book reviews requested a copy and may offer it as a prize in a competition. This is what they had to say:
Synopsis: For 2,500 years academics and historians had concluded that Ramesses II was the Pharaoh of the Exodus account when the Israelites left Egypt. But there was no evidence in support of that theory and every reason to disbelieve it, which led to the observation that the whole story was just a myth.
“Striving for Perfection” by Colin Jaque takes a new look at the historical events and, using all the information available from the Bible and Egyptian record in order to now show what actually happened and when it occurred.
“Striving for Perfection” covers the social, economic and religious concerns that led to the enslavement of the Israelites and the belittling by Moses who goaded a weak and worthless Pharaoh (who was thrust onto the throne by his vicious and dictatorial predecessor) to his eventual death.
“Striving for Perfection” brings alive the Bible story from Joseph to Moses fitting perfectly with the best knowledge we have of the 18th Dynasty Monarchs of Ancient Egypt and goes to proving the truth that the Exodus did take place enabling a date to be put to this crucial event.
Critique: Impressively researched, organized and presented, “Striving for Perfection” is extraordinarily informative with a thoroughly ‘reader friendly’ accessability that will be appreciated by both academia and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject. While especially and unreservedly recommended for community, college, and university library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that “Striving for Perfection” is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $4.99).”
Our congratulations to Colin for well deserved recognition.
