Series: Preaching the Word
To read Exodus is to encounter God. The book is about the mercy, justice, holiness, and glory of almighty God, who rules history by his sovereign power, saves the people of his covenant, and delivers his people from bondage. Once heard, the stories recorded in Exodus leave a lasting impression. Readers return to these great acts of redemption again and again because they give captives the hope of freedom.
In this Preaching the Word volume, Philip Graham Ryken mines the majestic book of Exodus for knowledge of God's character and instruction for his followers. So much can be learned about God through the accounts of his deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt, his many divine interventions for them, and his transformation of them into an independent nation.
At once theologically instructive and decidedly practical, this commentary moves readers to great rejoicing at God's work in the life of every person following him on the path to spiritual freedom. Ryken skillfully relates how the Israelites' deliverance from slavery anticipated the salvation accomplished in Jesus Christ, proving that God remembers his covenant and always delivers on his promises. For those who preach, teach, and study God's Word, this book is more than just a commentary; it is a celebration of God's faithfulness.

H. Wayne Sampson5 Stars Out Of 5February 15, 2010H. Wayne SampsonI own hundreds of commentaries and this is the best I have ever read. It is technical relative to the events of Exodus and their meaning, Jesus focused and conservative, yet it reads like a novel. It was so helpful to me that I E-mailed Dr. Ryken and asked him to write a commentary on Ezekiel and Isaiah.Five stars does not do it justice.
