Stuart does not get bogged down in what every other scholar has said about this or that. He uses great scholarship to arrive at his conclusions, but keeps a focus on what the reader wants to know. Highly recommended!
RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5April 18, 2009RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: maleThis is the best commentary on Exodus available. It is conservative, detailed, and extremely thought provoking. The excurses are particularly helpful. I found new and trustworthy insights on nearly every page. Stuart writes well. There are one or two places where more extensive interaction with alternative viewpoints might have been nice. However, no commentary can cover everything. Every Pastor or teacher working through Exodus should consult this volume.
John Glynn5 Stars Out Of 5June 25, 2006John GlynnThe thing that most impressed me about Douglas Stuarts commentary on Exodus for the New American commentary series (Broadman & Holman) is the easy proficiency with which Dr. Stuart exegetes how a particular Hebrew word or phrase should be taken in context, weaves in the ANE background, and demonstrates the way the theology not only relates to Exodus and the rest of the Pentateuch, but to entire biblical corpus. Those familiar with Dr. Stuarts prior work will not be surprised by the depth of scholarship undergirding his insights here. For a conservative commentary that is sufficiently meaty but still easy on the eyes, one could do no better.
