Discovering the Ark for the first time ; Getting comfy with ritual furniture Boxes and chests and arks! Oh my! ; Shrines, no tent like home ; Barques, art with a message ; The Ark and other extraterrestrial vehicles ; The over-arking context Epilogue: Where is the Ark today?
Summary: "Although much has been written about the Ark of the Covenant, few authors engage the wealth of information available that pertains to Egyptian material culture. [This] is the first book to explore the complex history of sacred ritual furniture in Egypt that predated the ark by hundreds of years. Within Egyptian culture, over four hundred examples of ritual furniture exist that shed light on the design and appearance of the ark. These examples form patterns that provide context for the Israelites' understanding of the ark at the time of its construction. That understanding would have been obvious to the Israelites of the time, but has since become obscured over the millennia. This groundbreaking book is the first to connect the Ark of the Covenant with the archaeology and chronology of ancient Egypt."--Publisher.
