Product Description

In this new commentary on Exodus in the Eerdmans Critical Commentary scholar Thomas B. Dozeman examines the book of Exodus under the rubric of the myriad literary genres that occur in the book. Dozeman accepts the conclusions of the 'literary' of 'higher criticism' movement and thus believes the book was composed over time throughout Israel's history.

Yet, this does not remove theological significance of the book of Exodus. On the contrary, Dozeman demonstrates great aptitude in handling the book theologically, and with exceptional insight is quite skilled at relating the book to its neighboring books and the entire OT canon.

This commentary is excellent for the academic setting. Whether you are looking for a commentary that treats Exodus from literary perspective, or if you want a commentary to balance the view of traditional perspectives, this book is an excellent resource.

Author Bio

Thomas B. Dozeman is professor of Hebrew Bible at United Theological Seminary, Trotwood, Ohio. His previous works include God at War: Power in the Exodus Tradition.

Publisher Description

In this volume Thomas Dozeman presents a fresh translation of the Hebrew text of Exodus along with a careful interpretation of its central themes, literary structure, and history of composition. He explores two related themes in the formation of the book of Exodus: the identity of Yahweh, the God of Israel, and the authority of Moses, the leader of the Israelite people.

Dozeman clarifies the multiple literary genres within the text, identifies only two separate authors in the book’s composition, and highlights the rich insights that arise from the comparative study of the ancient Near Eastern literary tradition. Also treating the influence of Exodus in the history of Jewish and Christian interpretation, Dozeman’s comprehensive commentary will be welcomed by Old Testament scholars.
