Read this book many years ago for my seminary class in the Book of Exodus. An excellent, indepth, exploration of this seminal book of the Hebrew Bible

Really helpful commentary on several levels. One should be warned that Childs is still somewhat invested in the source critical method here. He reviews the critical scholarship of the 19th and 20th centuries (these sections are dense, but helpful for one seeking an awareness of the critical methods of Exodus research) but then turns ultimately to exegeting the text in its final form while garnering various insights from ancient Jewish and Christian interpretation. Will consult in the future.

There are two things that really set Childs’ commentary apart. For each section of text, he discusses 1) the New Testament use of the Old Testament text, 2) the history of its interpretation, and any related theological issues. He takes a critical stance, which I have difficulty with. Still, an excellent commentary for those wanting to dig deeper in the most important book of the Old Testament. Every pastor should have this.

Brevard Springs Childs (September 2, 1923 - June 23, 2007) was Professor of Old Testament at Yale University from 1958 until 1999 (and Sterling Professor after 1992), and one of the most influential biblical scholars of the 20th century. Childs is particularly noted for pioneering canonical criticism, a way of interpreting the Bible that focuses on the text of the biblical canon itself as a finish ...more
