Product Description

This volume in the Interpretation series competently steers preachers and teachers through theological and literary difficulties in the second book of Moses. Fretheim begins by reviewing issues of faith and history, drawing out ways in which the Hebrew story of redemption can be applied to modern Christian experience. In his commentary, he pays special attention to the significance of the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, the relationship between law and narrative, and the shaping of literature by liturgy.

Publisher's Description

The introduction to this book recognizes Exodus as a Christian book, although it respects its pre-Christian roots in the Hebrew Bible. The commentary then moves in a straightforward manner to review issues of faith and history, the critical and theological tasks of a commentary, and other leading theological concerns. Terence Fretheim gives special treatment to the significance of the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, the relationship between law and narrative, and the shaping of literature by liturgy.

Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

    Fretheim is one of the most respected Old Testament scholars to date and it shows in this commentary. This text does not ignore difficulties in some of the passages and still provides quality application for sermons and small group settings. I highly recommend this commentary. Also, in regards to all the complaints of his view of Scripture, just because he uses fields of research you don't fully understand doesn't make the book unaccessible and of no value for evangelicals.

    This book comes from a moderately critical point of view, and for the right person, this book can be very helpful.However, you should have a solidly Evangelical commentary, or two, to ground your studies upon.Two excellent choices are;Douglas Stuart's volume in the New American Commentary series is one of the best. CBD #401024Peter Enns' Volume in the NIV Application series is also an excellent choice. CBD #0206073.Not having any special background or training, just your average believer, I have both of these and have found them to be wonderful reference books!

    This commentary takes a rather liberal view on the inerrancy of Scripture, and sometimes leans toward an allegory type of interpretation. For those interested in a commentary with a higher view of Scripture; Exodus, Saved for God's Glory by Philip Ryken (in the Preaching the Word Series) is recommended.
