Don Baker explains Moses’s place in Egyptian society and cogently sketches the likely nature of his education. After investigating Moses’s character, Baker uses him as a starting point for theological arguments about the merciful nature of God. Baker is strongest when he uses personal stories to illustrate his points, and so is Raymond Todd’s narration. Todd’s delivery is clear, methodically paced, and professional throughout. Todd follows Baker’s switch in cadence--now writing as a minister, exhorting his congregation, now explaining historical points more calmly--and really comes alive when delivering Baker’s stories of personal suffering. Then Todd manages to express pain, awe, and wonder simultaneously. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
