This large book has many details, which can be consider as subtopics, and it is free as an e-book download.
These days a great many Christians are interested in the overall subject of Moses and the Exodus; yet, in searching on the Internet they usually search by the subtopic of their immediate interest. God's Rock is essentially complete on these many subtopics because it begins at Moses' birth and goes through the Bible story until slightly past Moses' death to when the children of Israel cross the Jordan River on dry ground into Canaan.
See a list of subtopics below.
Added at the end of God's Rock is a large appendix (100 pages), which has Appendixes I through IX (the last having five maps and a graphic).
Appendix I is the Author's Preliminary Note which explains a little of the other appendixes and why it behooves the reader who wants to gain the most in-depth understanding of the story to read all of the appendixes first before reading the Story.
Appendix II gives a description of The Oregon Trail in the Western United States to help the reader to better understand the similar mode of travel and conditions that the Israelites experienced.
Appendix III details and explains Some Features Of The Land through which the Israelites traveled and lived for forty years. It also goes into how the Israelites measured distances traveled (not in miles or kilometers, but in the type of travel and the time of travel which would have been familiar to all people).
Appendix IV is about the Amalekites who the Israelites fought not long after arriving in the Sinai Peninsula, which then helps the reader to better envision the story of the battle when reading of it.
Appendix V discusses Cities and Districts which are mentioned in scripture and are in the Story. This helps in understanding when the Israelites arrived at actual places (having names) and when they arrived at wilderness sites where they encamped. Later Moses gave titles to those encampments which helped explain what occurred in those encampments between God and His people.
Appendix VI is a Chronology developed by the author from scripture that begins when Joseph was taken as a slave to Egypt and goes down in Biblical time to just after the reign of King Solomon. Descriptions of how the author arrived at conclusion and where he found data corresponding to scripture is included. In its earlier years, it differs to some extent from other chronologies; for example the time of the Exodus and who was Pharaoh.
Appendix VII details the path (Exodus Route) from Goshen (where were the homes of the Israelites) taken to arrive at the wilderness site of the Festival of Sacrifices. Later Moses entitled this encampment 'Succoth'. 'Succoth' was not a town or any such identifiable location in Egypt (or anywhere else). It is the title of that particular encampment (for the Festival of Sacrifices) to which Pharaoh had agreed with Moses and God. He had agreed that his slaves, the Israelites, could go with children and livestock to worship their God...and then return home to Goshen. The festival occurred on the seventh day after six day of march from Goshen (led by Cloud by day and Fire by night) to the encampment site (selected by God). It was within Egypt's mountainous wilderness west of the Gulf of Suez.
Appendix VIII details the path (Sinai Route) taken by the Israelites when escaping Pharaoh's wrath and intended slaughter. The route detailed here proceeds from the east side of the Gulf of Suez in the Wilderness of Sur and into the Sinai Peninsula and on to the Wilderness of Sinai where was the Mountain of God and where the Israelites encamped for the rest of the year (i.e. through the winter) and where they celebrated the second Passover shortly after having assembled the Tabernacle. Also detailed is the route taken out of the Wilderness of Sinai on to the west shore of the Gulf of Aqaba where occurred the second 'quail' incident, and then on to the oasis of Kadesh-barnea. Also included are many Biblical locations that are presently known from antiquity.
Appendix IX contains Maps, five maps sketched by the author, two of which are sketches of ancient maps that exist in the library of The Ohio State University. The other map sketches were composed from data found elsewhere (the sources are named). Moreover, a two-part graphic is included that offers an idea of what the scene would have looked like when the Israelites in their camp could see the waters flowing down to them from the Rock when struck by Moses.
Here are lists of subtopics by which Christians search the Internet. These will give you some idea of the subtopics detailed in the book. This is only some of the many topics that interest Christians, all of which are expressed in the Story in God's Rock..
Places on maps -
These are just a few of the topics covered in God's Rock. But the Story also contains the many characters like Moses' mother and father, Moses' Egyptian mother, the name of the pharaoh who took in Moses and made him a General in the army, Moses' wife in the wilderness, his father-in-law, and his sons, the names of individuals that worked with Moses, and the names of men who with their families died by means of God's wrath.
