Ahmed Osman's detailed and scholarly study of the interaction between old biblical stories and ancient Egypt is the fruit of a lifetime's learning. This is the last of his quartet of books, which finally solves mysteries that have puzzled mankind for thousands of years.

His first book 'Stranger in the Valley of the Kings' located the biblical figure of Joseph in the Egyptian court of the 18th dynasty; his second, 'Moses and Akhenaten' shows how Akhenaten the rebel pharaoh turned into Moses, a truly stunning metamorphosis that brought about the birth of monotheism; his third 'the Lost City of the Exodus' described how, when and where 'the Exodus' happened.

This new book, 'The Egyptian Origins of King David and the Temple of Solomon', looks at an earlier period of history, at the beginning of the Book of Genesis' historical narrative, as Abraham and his sister journeyed into Egypt.

Following a talk from Osman to introduce the book, there will be a Q&A session as well as a chance to get your copy of the book signed by the author.
