Exodus : A Bible Commentary for Every Day
Part of the The People's Bible Commentary series
The People's Bible Commentary (PBC) is designed for all those who want to study the scriptures in a way that will warm the heart as well as instruct the mind.
The second book in both Jewish and Christian scriptures, Exodus is the story of Israel's liberation from Egypt - filled with drama and pathos, treachery and deceit, heroism and love.
At the centre of the story is Moses, the baby famously set adrift in a basket who, in adulthood, led his people to freedom.
As the backdrop to the covenant established between God and Israel at Mount Sinai, this book sets the stage for the detailed law-giving and narrative in the books of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.
