Overview

Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu

The book of Exodus is often seen as ancient history, largely irrelevant to most of the modern Western world. This new commentary by Godfrey Ashby attempts specifically to show how this Old Testament book is of continuing significance to readers today.

Ashby discusses the crucial importance of the events described in Exodus and their meaning for the Old Testament gospel, and explains why the Exodus event is central to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to the faith of believers in our own age. He also explores the relevance of Exodus for the liberation struggle now taking place throughout the third world.
