Exodus (Niv Application Commentary Series)

Peter Enns
Also Available In

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable--but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.

A great starting point
4 stars By Jeff, Apr 11 2018
I found this book to be a great starting point for understanding and applying the book of Exodus. Enns does a great job of drawing out the narrative of the book in a powerful way and highlighting its contemporary significance. 
I would have liked a more detailed examination of the text for each section with less space given to the 'bridging contexts' for each passage, however, that would make for a much larger commentary altogether. 
I'd recommend this book to readers and Bible study leaders but would suggest pairing it with a more in-depth commentary on the text for those preaching or studying the book in greater detail.

Very useful commentary
4 stars By ArthBoaz, Dec 21 2015
To prepare a sermon series on Exodus I purchased a number of commentaries. This has proved to be the most useful and helpful. It is well written and thoughtful, with a thorough focus on God and Christ, as any true commentary should have.
Each passage is dealt with under the headings "Original Meaning", "Bridging Contexts" and "Contemporary Significance" which leads your study from the words of Scripture to the application needed to reveal the significance of the passage for the present-day Christian. The applications are in line with the text and never try to stretch the meaning to fit a preconceived notion, as some commentaries are prone to do.
This commentary has helped provide some real inspiration and encouragement to our church members as we have continued our study of Exodus.
The commentary is thoroughly recommended. I will focus on this series when I need future commentaries.
