You can read excerpts from Mr. Greenberg's books on this site along with some of his other writings on the ancient Near East and some of his academic papers.

The Moses Mystery has also been published in Greek; The Bible Myth in Portuguese, and Russian editions; 101 Myths of the Bible in Spanish, Korean,  Greek, Serbian, and Croatian language editions.

A New York City criminal defense attorney and President of the Biblical Archaeology Society of New York (BASNY), Greenberg has long been interested in the intersection between ancient myth and ancient history, especially as it applies to Egyptian influences on the writing of the bible. The problem, he says, is figuring out how to separate the myth from the history. For more on Gary Greenberg's views read the stories in the New York Press,  the Florence SC News or the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

 In 2006, he served as a consultant to National Geographic Television's Science of the Bible series. He has also lectured frequently on ancient history, mythology, and biblical studies and has also presented papers at several academic conferences concerned with Egyptian and/or biblical affairs, including the International Congress of Egyptologists (9/95), the International Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature (7/97) and several annual conferences of the American Research Center in Egypt. He has also written for several Egyptological journals. He is a member of The Society of Biblical Literature, The Egypt Exploration Society, The American Research Center in Egypt, The Historical Society, and The Archaeological Institute of America.

Mr. Greenberg has appeared on numerous television and radio shows, including Tony Brown's Journal, and talk shows hosted by Barry Farber, Mort Downey, Bernie McCain, and Lionel, and has served as a guest commentator on Court TV. He has also written on law, politics and computers. In addition to writing a book on computer software, his work has appeared in the New York Law Journal, The Champion, Creative Computing, Personal Computing, Compute, Microcomputing, Kilobaud, Torpet, The Abolitionist, Outlook, New York Libertarian, and Libertarian Forum.
