Israel's liberation from bondage to Pharaoh is one of the great turning points in Old Testament history. Defending the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch and the historicity of the plagues and wanderings in the wilderness, Stuart throws considerable light on the book's literary, theological, and sociological dimensions.

Customer Reviews for Exodus: New American Commentary [NAC]
Review 1 for Exodus: New American Commentary [NAC]
I have been reading this with delight. Stuart does not get bogged down in what every other scholar has said about this or that. He uses great scholarship to arrive at his conclusions, but keeps a focus on what the reader wants to know. Highly recommended!

Review 2 for Exodus: New American Commentary [NAC]
This is the best commentary on Exodus available. It is conservative, detailed, and extremely thought provoking. The excurses are particularly helpful. I found new and trustworthy insights on nearly every page. Stuart writes well. There are one or two places where more extensive interaction with alternative viewpoints might have been nice. However, no commentary can cover everything. Every Pastor or teacher working through Exodus should consult this volume.

Review 3 for Exodus: New American Commentary [NAC]
Date:June 25, 2006
The thing that most impressed me about Douglas Stuarts commentary on Exodus for the New American commentary series (Broadman & Holman) is the easy proficiency with which Dr. Stuart exegetes how a particular Hebrew word or phrase should be taken in context, weaves in the ANE background, and demonstrates the way the theology not only relates to Exodus and the rest of the Pentateuch, but to entire biblical corpus. Those familiar with Dr. Stuarts prior work will not be surprised by the depth of scholarship undergirding his insights here. For a conservative commentary that is sufficiently meaty but still easy on the eyes, one could do no better.
