For the beginning reader of Ancient Egyptian lore this is a wonderful starter book that dives into some of the most common stories that can be found in the land of pyramids desert and exotic gods What makes it so intriguing to the reader is the fact that the author has compiled it so that it follows a certain timeline within its section of stories although without using dates What disappointed me the most is the fact that there are actually lore from Ancient Egypt then what was provided for but I guess for the sake of simplifying everything the author chose to stick with the Osirian cycle of deities At the same time for those that were used it would have made it a lot easier for the reader if there was a glossary of mentioned deities in the back with a small trivia background Further the deities weren t really discussed in their animal headed or animal personas which is what differentiates them from most other mythoi types There were a few uick mentions and the interesting discussion of Set s strange animal head but not enough to bring the reader into the true flesh of the times And finally about the stories themselves Hatshepsut s story shouldn t haven t been included if you were to go along with the Ancient Egyptian belief especially of her heir Thutmose III who attempted to wipe her out stating that she wasn t an actual pharaoh At the same time there were a few other stories that I hadn t heard of and I don t know if I would have included them just since of the controversial side of their actual origins Roger has proved that he is a lot better in his preservation and re telling of the stories when compared to those of Edith Hamilton And although they were bland and too lengthy in some cases it may be considered a compliment in the keeping of the actual format of the majority of the stories Finally there is a bit of a gruesome side to some of the stories so it is with precaution that the reader picks this book up and reads it but be assured of these stories have been uite cleaned up from their original telling Jewish Life most common stories that can be found in the land of pyramids desert and exotic gods What Sex Toys 101 A Playfully Uninhibited Guide makes it so intriguing to the reader is the fact that the author has compiled it so that it follows a certain timeline within its section of stories although without using dates What disappointed The Joy in Business me the Stuffed most is the fact that there are actually lore from Ancient Egypt then what was provided for but I guess for the sake of simplifying everything the author chose to stick with the Osirian cycle of deities At the same time for those that were used it would have Cotas Claim made it a lot easier for the reader if there was a glossary of The Captured Princess mentioned deities in the back with a small trivia background Further the deities weren t really discussed in their animal headed or animal personas which is what differentiates them from Pamięć brzemię i uwolnienie Niemcy wobec nazistowskiej przeszłości 1945 2010 most other Fakers Forgers Phoneys Famous Scams and Scamps mythoi types There were a few uick Hearing the Voice of People with Dementia mentions and the interesting discussion of Set s strange animal head but not enough to bring the reader into the true flesh of the times And finally about the stories themselves Hatshepsut s story shouldn t haven t been included if you were to go along with the Ancient Egyptian belief especially of her heir Thutmose III who attempted to wipe her out stating that she wasn t an actual pharaoh At the same time there were a few other stories that I hadn t heard of and I don t know if I would have included them just since of the controversial side of their actual origins Roger has proved that he is a lot better in his preservation and re telling of the stories when compared to those of Edith Hamilton And although they were bland and too lengthy in some cases it Dreams Come to Life (Bendy and the Ink Machine, Book 1) may be considered a compliment in the keeping of the actual format of the Doing without Concepts majority of the stories Finally there is a bit of a gruesome side to some of the stories so it is with precaution that the reader picks this book up and reads it but be assured of these stories have been uite cleaned up from their original telling

So Roger Lancelyn Green was in The Inklings Who knew The Inklings right That literary group CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien were in With a bunch of other people everybody forgets Well Roger Lancelyn Green was in it at least according to the Author File in the back of the Puffin book And Wikipedia Of course a little internet sleuthing said he wasn t a member but rather someone who was friends with other Inklings and occasionally attended their meetingsAlso he was the first one to read the Narnia series And give it the name The Chronicles of Narnia Dang it sounds like a member to meI ve taught Ancient Egypt to middle school students for years now along with Ancient Mesopotamia The Ancient Indus Ancient China You know the big ones But there s so little time we can t really delve into it So pyramids mummies Nile pharaohs hieroglyphs and we re outAnd that s sad because Egypt lasted 4000 years Four THOUSAND I mean US History teachers get bent out of shape because their students don t know about the XYZ Affair or the Teapot Dome Scandal Can you imagine how the public school teachers in Ancient Egypt must have felt All those little Egyptian kids screwing around all the time at their desks Putting a baby crocodile on the teacher s chairFour thousand years of continuous civilization Counting the Greeks and kindof counting the Romans Not counting the Arabs Sorry guysSo I m a little bit shaky on some of my Ancient Egypt knowledge I d never been reuired to read any of their myths so I hadn t Or at least I d read very few I knew about the gods and could have listed several who they are what they did But I didn t really know the storiesAnd the stories are fascinatingI d be interested in seeing a direct translation now that I ve read this for several reasonsFirst there s so much that overlaps with Biblical narrative In the story Ra and his Children for instance so much seemed similar to Genesis The creation of the world separating night from day creating man and woman People rebelling against Ra and did evil in his sight worshipping the dragon of darkness I mean there are some differences in the Bible when the people turn evil God saves them with an ark In Ancient Egypt Ra saves them with beer so there s thatHere s another one from the story The Land of the Dead and humans are being judged Among the things they say at judgement I have given bread to the hungry water to the thirsty clothing to the naked and a boat to him who could not cross the River This is very similar to Christ s discussion of the judgement in Matt 25 And later in the same story we hear of Apophis the snake the eater of souls who dwelt in the Pits of Fire Yeah sounds familiar I ve been told not to be afraid of anyone who can kill me but I should be afraid of the One who can destroy both my soul and body in HellAnd Christ did spend some time in Egypt right Right Now I m not claiming Christ is taking Egyptian belief and turning it into some sort of Judeo Egyptian syncretistic religion or anything like that I m sure others have already said that I m just saying I found it interesting and I d also be interested in reading the direct translationsOk here s one from the story The Taking of Joppa The Egyptians are up in Palestine trying to get Joppa and the governor says I swear to Jahwah my god that you shall be second only to myself in this new kingdom which we shall carve out of dat da dat da daaa Did the Ancient Egyptian texts reference Jahwah Or did Green add that to the story to give it an extra sense of veracity And if he added that did he add the other stuff A uick search tells me he didn t add everything But still interestedSide note that Jahwah part reminded me of Indiana Jones But in the Latin alphabet Jehovah begins with an IAs for the book and the myths I found them fascinating I ll probably read them again sometime soon And I may give one or two to my class to read Don t let the cover fool you though This would be a challenging read for a good many middle school students Here s a sentence from the first page of the introduction The first Greek historian whose works survive Herodotus visited it in about 450 BC and found that only priests could still read the ancient hieroglyphs in which inscriptions had been carved or written on the monuments since the days when Menes the first historical Pharaoh united the Two Lands in about 3200 BCOr this one The natural conditions in any land are often to a large extent responsible for its religious beliefs the form its civilization takes and the stories that evolve into its literatureSo I might not go into buying this book thinking it will definitely be worth having your students read it But for the teacher who is unfamiliar with the myths of Ancient Egypt it s a great intro
