Exodus may be the most important book in the Hebrew Bible, suggests Meyers (religion, Duke U.) because of the resonance throughout the world of its account of escape from oppression, courageous prophetic activity, legal traditions, physical setting, and moral issues in the service of God. First she sets the cultural, historical, and literary context, and suggests readings on various topics. Then she embarks on her own section-by-section commentary from the oppression to the construction of the tabernacle. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
