Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Catholic Biblical Quarterly
Ashby is to be commended for his attempt to deal seriously with the theological subject matter of the Bible while simultaneously engaging the legacy of liberation theology.... This is a fine commentary for parishes or for college courses in which contemporary reception of the biblical message is emphasized.
Hebrew Studies
"Ashby's writing is clear, pleasant, approachable, and should appeal to the educated Christian layperson.... He gears his work to an audience which has limited Hebrew knowledge and interest.... A pleasantly readable survey of twentieth century historical critical work related to Exodus and an engaging theological reading of this most defining biblical book."
Lexington Theological Quarterly
A very insightful and readable commentary. It engages important social and political issues, provides excellent theological commentary on the book of Exodus, and forces the reader to reflect on and think through the difficult and complex relationships that exist between texts, selves, histories, theologies, and social contexts.
Religious Studies Review
This commentary is an excellent introduction to Exodus for lay Christian unfamiliar with and/or alienated from the OT. Recommended for seminary libraries.
Review & Expositor
Lay persons, students, and ministers seeking lively, readable, responsible, but non-technical exposition of Exodus will find Ashby's commentary very helpful.
