You should read the book I mentioned, avaialble on Amazon for <$20. Some Greek philosophers and one Egyptian pharoah were monotheists too. That similarity to Hebrew monotheism is very superficial, however. Only the Hebrews worshipped a transcendant God, unconnected with nature, in a loving covenant with His people, and espoused a unique view of reality that did not blur the realms of the Divine, Nature, and Humanity as did all other religions, including those noted above. The book is not just someone's personal decaration of faith, but is a scholarly exploration of historical facts and details about mythological religions. Whatever the Bible is, it's not myth. You'll enjoy it, I think.

Thanks, I will check it out.
