In this new commentary on Exodus in the Eerdmans Critical Commentary, scholar Thomas B. Dozeman examines the book of Exodus under the rubric of the myriad literary genres that occur in the book. Dozeman accepts the conclusions of the “literary” of “higher criticism” movement and thus believes the book was composed over time throughout Israel's history. Yet, this does not remove theological significance of the book of Exodus. On the contrary, Dozeman demonstrates great aptitude in handling the book theologically, and with exceptional insight is quite skilled at relating the book to its neighboring books and the entire OT canon. This commentary is excellent for the academic setting. Whether you are looking for a commentary that treats Exodus from literary perspective, or if you want a commentary to balance the view of traditional perspectives, this book is an excellent resource.
This commentary is an important contribution to the study of Exodus and a very useful tool.
