While dated, R.T.R. Clark's 1959 publication of Myth and Symbol in Ancient Egypt provides a reliable introduction to ancient Egypt and its mythology.
R.T. Rundle Clark gives us an excellent and valuable introduction to the Egyptian mythological world, based upon the most reliable interpretations of their principal myths. In telling the myths, he allows the texts to speak for themselves as far as possible and gives considerable attention to the philosophical ideas that the myths were trying to express--ideas that foreshadowed the philosophy of the Greeks and even touched on the perennial themes of Christian theology.
