This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, or anyone studying the book of Exodus. With Logos Bible Software, this volume is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to the Greek and Hebrew texts and English translations in your library. This makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study.
The analysis and explanation of the historical as well as legal portions will generally be found both clear and satisfactory; and although the work emanates from a scholar who uses freely his knowledge of Hebrew, it is manifest that all readers of ordinary intelligence may use it without difficulty.
