Underlying the deceptively simple story line, the second book of the Bible is a complex and rich literary production that presents some of the most fundamental concepts and institutions of Jewish and Christian tradition. This commentary makes the details of the text and the vitality of its story accessible to all readers. It explains the difficult passages and interpretive problems and it recaptures for modern audiences its life setting in biblical antiquity

- Publisher This commentary views Exodus as a cultural document, preserving the collective memories of the Israelites and relating them to the major institutions and beliefs that emerged by the end of the period of the Hebrew Bible. It is intended to help the reader follow the story line of Exodus, understand its socio-cultural context, appreciate its literary features, recognize its major themes and values, and also note its interpretive and moral problems. It explains important concepts and terms as expressed in the Hebrew original so that both people who know Hebrew and those who don't will be able to follow the discussion. Frequent 'closer look' sections examine key elements of the Ancient Near East that bear on the text's meaning, while 'Bridging the Horizons' articles connect this world with the cultural, political and religious environments of today.
