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--and that define God's character. Readers return to these great acts of redemption again and again because they give captives the hope of freedom.
In this Preaching the Word commentary, Exodus: Saved for God's Glory 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, Exodus: Saved for God's Glory opens up the text using an expository methodology that is accessible to all readers. Ryken highlights points of detail that are often missed by readers of Exodus, but does so in a decidedly practical and edifying manner. He 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.
Preaching the Word commentaries are written by pastors for pastors, as well as for all who teach or study God's word. With pastor R. Kent Hughes as the series editor, experienced pastors and teachers model expository preaching and practical application. This series is noted for its steadfast commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, and readability. It is widely accessible for seasoned and new pastors, as well as men and women hungering to read the Bible in a fresh way.

I 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.
