    Accessable. Good scholarship. Luxury construction.

    Fretheim's contribution is very good and helpful. His theology is a matter of public record and I am of the same bent; so I highly recommend it.

    Brueggeman's commentary on Exodus is also good but a few of his approaches surprise me. Disclaimer: I was only skimming through his comments to see what he had to say. He really seems to skip any analysis of Pharaoh's hardened heart. On my skim I could not find any explanation for why he didn't seem to discuss the times Pharaoh hardened his heart and the times God hardened Pharaoh's heart. For that, I'll recommend Fretheim's commentary on Exodus, which Brueggeman quotes, sometimes argumentatively.

    I have never seen the point of including the Biblical text within the commentary. Every reader should have the Bible open anyway when reading the comments.

    Oh, I was very pleasantly surprised by the high quality physical construction of the book itself. The binding is very well made. The hardback cover feels like it is covered with bonded leather. I am almost certain that it is; but it doesn't claim to be so anywhere. I bought it for the comments but the construction makes it a truly luxury book.

    Fretheim and Brueggeman are both very good writers. Their theological insights are often helpful. However, each expresses such a low view of the historical reliabily of Genesis and Exodus, respectively, that it is sometimes difficult to appreciate the rest of their comments. Kaiser's contribution on Leviticus is solid and well-written. The introductory articles are interesting, but not as consistent or reliable as similar articles in other series. Overall, this volume has its moments, but none of its entries is the best option available on its book or topic.
