IVP Academic Exodus: Tyndale Old Testament Comemntary [TOTC]

Exodus, Cole says, is 'the centre of the Old Testament'. It recounts the supreme Old Testament example of the saving acts of God, narrates the instituting of Passover and enshrines the giving of God's law. It portrays Moses, the prototype of all Israel's prophets, and Aaron, the first high priest. This classic commentary has been completely retypset and presented in a fresh, vibrant new large paperback format, with new global branding.

The Tyndale Bible Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section-by-section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The aim throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

The late R. Alan Cole was lecturer in Old Testament at Moore Theological College, Sydney, and Trinity Theological College, Singapore.

Cole's work on Exodus is solid, but not outstanding. Compared to some newer works (e.g. Bruckner, Bruggemann, Enns, Motyer, and Stuart), it is now seems a little dated. However, it is till worth reading and is definitely worth the price.
