In this two--volume commentary, Eugene Carpenter interacts with the Hebrew text to trace these and other important themes through Exodus. He also discusses how key theological concepts of Exodus continue throughout the Bible and offers suggestions for applying the message of the book to modern-day readers.

Author Bio

Eugene Carpenter (1943-2012) was professor of Old Testament, Hebrew, and biblical theology at Bethel College. He wrote commentaries on Daniel and Exodus, as well as the volume on Deuteronomy in the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary series. He translated for the Lexham English Bible and also served as a pastor and teacher in a variety of churches and ministries.

Editorial Reviews

"Eugene Carpenter's magnum opus is impressive in its scholarly breadth and depth. This commentary highlights the history and theology of Exodus. In Dr. Carpenter's view, these two are mixed inseparably: 'History cannot be scuttled in Exodus; it is part of the texture and matrix of theological truth.' "
--Dr. Wayne McCown, provost emeritus, Roberts Wesleyan College, and founding dean emeritus, Northeastern Seminary
"The legacy of Gene Carpenter's life and scholarship continue well beyond his years. Few have equaled his tireless commitment to good exegesis and a biblical theology of ministry. This volume is a testament to a man who committed his life to Jesus Christ and his Word."
--Terry Linhart, chair, religion and philosophy, Bethel College, Indiana

    If you are looking through and evangelical commentary on the Hebrew of Exodus, then Exodus Volume 1 and 2,by Eugene Carpenter published by Lexham Publishers is the commentary you are looking for. These two commentates are some of the more recent volume in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series edited by H. Wayne House, a series which is synonymous with excellent exegesis and superior application, this volume continues the long legacy. This volume is one of the most articulate and practical modern commentaries on the second book of the Pentateuch. While Carpenter is no stranger to Biblical commentaries this is his first foray into this first-rate commentary series. Furthermore it was a joy to see this commentary come to fruition at all due to Carpenter's accidental death in 2012.

    The first volume, Exodus 1-18, begins with the typical introductory section. As with most technical commentaries, Carpenter spends just over 50 pages with these important introductory matters. Carpenter's focus is the discussion of textual issues regarding the original Hebrew text. In this section he has a few well-formed conclusions. The most important of which being that the original text is well preserved in the final manuscript that we have in our Bibles today. Secondly when discussing authorship, Carpenter, holds to Mosaic authorship as well as Exodus being the true title of the second book of the Pentateuch. In a day when Mosaic authorship is always questioned, it is Illuminating to see a scholar of Carpenter's caliber hold fast to Moses being the author / editor of the book of Exodus. And other issues such as date Carpenter does not truly add any new ideas to the discussion rather giving a nebulous date to its formulation.

    In the next section, of Exodus 1-18, as with all Evangelical Exegetical Commentaries, Carpenter dives headlong into the theological elements of the specific biblical book, in this case Exodus. In this section Carpenter discusses themes such as the God who speaks in Acts, the people of God, and how Exodus is a lasting paradigm for the mighty acts of God. Each of these themes is discussed brilliantly in short form and should be a great aid to any Minister preaching exegetically through the book of Exodus. One further note in the introduction is Carpenter adds a very thorough outline and bibliography which will be a great use to any Minister teaching exegetically or non-exegetically through the second book of the Pentateuch.

    With regard to the commentary section of this first volume Carpenter spins just shy of 600 Pages dealing with the text of Exodus 1 through 18. The thoroughness in which Carpenter goes through must be commended. He diligently gives his own translation of the Hebrew text while giving a full body commentary to the textual notes and the text itself. Sporadically Carpenter also adds comments on biblical Theology and application and devotional implications. Furthermore at the end of each pericope he adds a pinpoint focused bibliography and at that pericope itself. Each of these traits is extremely helpful to the pastor as well as scholar.

    In the second volume, Exodus 19 through 40, Carpenter continues his commentary pericope by pericope, through the end of the book of Exodus. While there is still the same great commentary on the Hebrew text in regards to text textual analysis, commentary, and application, Carpenter does seem to have less to say about the final twenty-one chapters then he did up the first eighteen. A feature of note inside the second volume is the numerous experiences that carpenter has to end the second volume. These excursuses include the historicity of Moses, the date of Moses, the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, questioning the large numbers in Exodus, and a study in the Covenant whole structure in Exodus. Each of these excursuses while short and length are very impactful to anyone who plans to study the second book of the Pentateuch.

    With regard of recommending,Exodus 1-18 and 19-41,to others I would whole heartily recommend this commentary to students of scripture, with one caveat. By this I mean I recommend this work to Pastors, Bible Teachers, Bible College Students, there is enough scholarly weight to this work to understand a particular issue in the text while giving aid to pastors in preaching the text. There are many commentaries about the second book of thePentateuch available at this moment butExodus1-18 and 19-41, of the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series are a giant leap above all other commentaries on this book of the Bible.

    These books was provided to me free of charge from Lexham Press in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    Volume 1 in Eugene Carpenters two-volume set on Exodus in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) series covers Exodus 1 18. I heard discussion as far back as 2003 of a coming, major commentary on Exodus by Mr. Carpenter as one to be highly anticipated. As it turns out, and as the acknowledgment explained, Mr. Carpenter completed the work just days before his accidental death in 2012. It is a blessing that the work was finished before his death.

    Since the EEC began as a digital commentary series, its exciting to see these two volumes available as a hardback for a wider audience. I imagine this commentary will continue to raise the reputation of this budding commentary series.

    Mr. Carpenter begins the Introduction with a discussion of textual issues. He concludes that the text is well preserved. He further explains the significance of the title as well as the canonicity of Exodus, which has not been majorly challenged. When he discusses authorship, he concludes: Moses was most likely the focal inspired author-editor and originator of the Pentateuch and thus of Exodus, with the gifted Joshua and possibly Eleazer serving as important early inspired editors or contributors. While my beliefs would be even more conservative than that, its clear hes more conservative than most of the major Old Testament commentaries on Exodus we have today. Hes a little more nebulous on date and gives too much credence to some of the critical theories out there. Still, I was pleased when he discussed the history of the book that he said, the events in Exodus are real history; it is accurate history as intended by the author.

    Next, he goes into the theological elements of the book. In that section, he discusses the God who speaks and acts, the people of God, and Exodus: a lasting paradigm. After a brief discussion of structure, he gives a detailed outline and a select bibliography.

    The commentary section is very full. For each passage he gives an introduction, a translation, textual notes, and very detailed commentary verse by verse, all followed by biblical theology, application and devotional implications, and a selected bibliography for the passage itself.

    This commentary by Eugene Carpenter is clearly a top-three commentary for what we have available today. I imagine it will be used for many years to come and I highly recommend.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
