Inter-Varsity Press The Message of Exodus: The Bible Speaks Today [BST]

The Book of Exodus holds an esteemed place in the Old Testament, and the shadow of its influence reaches as far as Revelation, where an abundance of themes from Exodus echo off its pages. In Exodus, Israel begins as an enslaved people, in service to Egyptian taskmasters. By the end of the book, Israel is again in service--to its sovereign Lord in the service of worship. Between these poles, Moses is called, God's name is revealed, Israel is delivered, the law is given, the plan of the tabernacle is unveiled, and all is nearly lost when Israel rebels in the wilderness. It is an epic saga, and in it lies the key to understanding so much of the Bible. Under Alec Motyer's expert guidance, we explore the terrain of Exodus, weigh its themes and view our own lives and times through its timeless lens.

This is an excellent expositon on the Book of Exodus. As the series title indicates, the focus is on "the message" of the text. Resources for future study and occasional comments of a more technical nature are reserved for the footnotes. Motyer has written an admirable, insightful, and conservative volume here. What it does, it does very well.
